Hampshire Cricket History

Bristol – but not so ship-shape

Today that is. Alsop and Smith both gone early in their 30s: 80-2; Holland and Organ batting.

(What does ‘Ship-shape and Bristol fashion’ mean – or rather, why does it mean what it does?)

PS Holland’s just gone for 21 with the score on 111-3. But if 111 really worked, wouldn’t they collapse and be 111 all out? ‘Keeper Dickinson in at five.

139-4. Everyone has reached at least 15; no one has reached 40. T Scriven is in at number six.

(2.30) Dickinson made 43, and at 188-5 Hampshire are 101 in arrears

(3.15) 229-6 and Scriven gone for 29. Six men out between 15 – 43. Pompey’s ‘Aussie’ Hay is 29*, Brad Taylor is just in, and the deficit is now 60.

(4.45) After Hay went for 39, Chris Sole broke the pattern, dismissed for just a sole run (ha! ha!). Hampshire 274-9, still 15 behind.

(5.15) Gloucs are batting again. Hart was run out for 16, with Salisbury 11*. so everyone reached double figures with the Sole exception of … ** but no-one made fifty

** I might keep this going you know.

C-o-P: Gloucs 48-1 and Chris (Bless him) has the Sole wicket to fall (I did warn you)

Terry found it (cheers) Slight danger of me being ‘non PC’ for a moment there but it seems I’m OK. My mum often used the phrase.

On a slightly related link I recently watched an episode of Steptoe and Son in which Harold remarked that a young lady had “a nice pair of Bristols”. I suspect this is a far more non-PC phrase involving the city nowadays!

I’m not sure I should enquire about that origin … Were there not also ‘fags’ called Bristol, way back?

Mr Jerry must be just a bowler as he wasn’t required today . . .

If only we had a 2nd XI player with the surname Tom.
