Match Report

A nearly complete Dodgers side comprising 8 stalwarts in need of an afternoon off and 2 borrowed Superstars (thanks Colin and Mark) turned out on for the annual match against the LSE's Staff team at an overcast Berrylands.

Batting first, Dodgers openers McB and Lee the Younger made steady progress before the latter was bowled for 15. Williams in his first ever start for the Dodgers could only add 6. However, a partnership of 54 for the 3rd wicket between McBarron and Priest saw a recovery. The unlucky Davey was run out without facing a ball to bring in Hatteea for a swift 31. Cooper hit an unbeaten 24 including some lusty blows to take the final total on to 187.

It was always going to be a hard total to defend...

Selected highlights of the Dodgers bowling were:

- Appleton walking to Cooper's bowling when only The Cat appealed.
- Priest setting an 8-0 legside field to Pope for a few balls.
