In dribs and drabs the Stonor team ambled over to their pitch saturated in lazy sunshine witlessly anticipating a spot of

village cricket. Little did they know the storm that was awaiting them. Ibstone turned up looking innocent enough the only

tell tale signs being that they turned up together, on time, in Australia C.C. tracksuits and with a small army of supporters.

Thereafter Stonor was rapidly acquainted with the lost art of fielding (instead of the usual practice of gazing at the view)

as Ibstone’s W Downing (62) and M. Burrow (61 not out) caused the hosts to clock up more miles in the outfield than they

have all season. Stonor’s bowling tried its best (J. Dobson enjoying a late flurry with 2 for 6) but Ibstone batted like a Test

team all the way down leaving Stonor bemused and with 216 to chase. However, cometh the hour cometh some sort of

response this time in the form of J. Mayo’s 51 (elegance under pressure) needing an excellent slip catch from O. Redrup

to stop him. Under fire from a fearsome Ibstone bowling attack (club helmets were christened) captain N. Allsop led from

the front, his loyal team following him blindly over the top, some falling in cricketing no man’s land shrapnelled by Ibstone’s

pace others (O. Nicholson and D. Fennell) leading forlorn last minute cavalry charges. Opinions as to cricketing technique

were freely exchanged between the two teams but good nature prevailed with an Ibstone fielder lazily catching a huge

hit from O. Nicholson but admitting to having touched the boundary flag thus giving Nicholson a second life and the Ibstone

coach buying Joy Fisher a glass of red wine for her excellent tea. An honourable draw.
