v PCO’s Sun 16 June 2019 (home)

We found ourselves in a unusual position this week, having to take the field first. 3 or 4 dropped catches later, Chris another dolly, giving some of their batsmen a second or even third life. Chris did pick up a couple wickets, but they looked in good shape at 117 for 3. Josh and Ben bowled well, but were unlucky picking up a wicket apiece and Andrew and Dave chipped in with 1 and 2 wickets respectively. Tom P finished them off with 3 wickets in 9 balls, remember he is on a hat trick the next time he bowls. A good fight back to restrict PCO’s to 173 all out.

A bad start, Andrew bowled out of the footholes behind his legs, third ball, Wes run out, ninth ball, 0 for 2, a mountain to climb. Jon redeemed himself for running out Wes with a stand of 83 with Ben (45) and going on to complete his fifty in 67 balls, Tom V was just getting into his stride when he was bowled for 20 and then 4 more quick wickets then fell including another run out, 133 for 8. A rear guard action was required, Dave 6* (31 balls) and Josh 1 (26 balls) provided it. When Josh was out in the last over it just meant Chris had three ball to face with a bruised hand as a result of his second dropped catch. He survived and we finished on 142 for 9, honours even.

The New Inn

Fans of The New Inn maybe disappointed, it has recently been refurbished to include a roof terrace, a very neutral colour scheme and parque flooring.

The traditional boozer styling has gone, along with ale casks behind the bar and nearly all of the pub games.

However the toilets have been greatly improved and have benefitted from a bright selection of glossy tiles.

On the 6th May 2007 Mount Edgcumbe played against Cheesewring CC at Upton Cross.

Batting first we set a then club record score of 271-1.  John Fearon carried his bat to score 114*, his maiden century.  He opened with Steve Boyd (62) in a first wicket partnership of 105.  Martin Moore joined John to score 59* and help post a record second wicket partnership of 166*, which was also the all-time highest score for any wicket.

This may have been the only instance ever of an innings featuring two century partnerships or  an innings  where all three batsmen scored half centuries.
