League Match Report (sort of) :: GCC vs. IBIS Mapledurham – 4th June 2011

In the absence of a formal match report, here’s how it was sporadically reported on Twitter. Along with a few snaps from one of the TWO photographers we had at the ground. These come from the great Gary K Mann.

@Upswinger Anyone at the GCG?

@Upswinger So, GCC are indeed batting. 103/3 after 28 overs. Smith (3), Armitage (15) and Kent (37) all back in the hutch.

@Upswinger Wincott & Silver currently at the coalface. Not being too troubled by the bowling at the moment….

@Upswinger @CarlyBidders Is offering the WAGs view of today’s game, meanwhile Silver advances down the track, but can only feather one to the keeper.

@Upswinger Carrier in – he needs some runs that boy. Winkers tries to open up but also departs, caught backward point! James joins OC 133/5 now.

@Upswinger ….and now Carrier. Bowled. In strides GCCs premier ego.

@Upswinger 150 up, 6 wickets down, 38 overs bowled. Nutterfield reverse sweeps for four. We’ll be hearing about that one all night…..

@Upswinger James seeing the cherry like a beach ball at the moment. 12 of the last over brings up 175.

@Upswinger Both batsmen exchanging the strike. 181/6 3 overs to tea.

@Upswinger Tom Hedge comes on to bowl for IPIS – two above head wides, one peach but mostly half track dross! 194, 2 overs remaining.

@Upswinger And that’s tea. 213/6. Is it enough – joins us after these messages from our sponsors!

@Upswinger Going out tonight? http://yfrog.com/h4lzrpuj

@Upswinger IPIS have bolted out of the stables 31 from 6 overs, but Tony Hadley makes the breakthrough sending the openers off stump all a kilter.

@Upswinger And still they march on. 69 from 12 overs now, but again Barton rearranges the timbers. 2 down with a lot of work still to do.

@Upswinger Sexon on, bowls, caught! Wincott snaffles one in the slips. 92/3 from 16.

@Upswinger LBW shout falls on deaf ears, but the next one doesn’t! Sexon strikes again in his first over! Is this the start of the end. IPIS tail wags!

@Upswinger @Upswinger come on the G’s! Club colours on the beach!! http://t.co/gr16QAJ

@Upswinger 103/4 from 20 and that’s it from me I’m afraid!

@Upswinger RT @TherealJimross: Upswinger get back! Catering contracts are not important

@Upswinger @andyank yes please!

@Upswinger 28 from 7 needed by IPIS. ….and

@Upswinger 8 men down. Butterfield on.

@Upswinger   { *** Super Injunction *** }

@Upswinger 18 off 5. Barton on.

@Upswinger Ultras skip at wedding reception but can’t think of anything but this thriller. Come on Slade or Kenza – win it for us! This is massive!!!!

@Upswinger 11 off 4. Butterfield….car started.

@Upswinger Another short one…top edge…caught Silver. 9 down. 11 needed. Squeaky bum time. Butterfield is going to win it for us.

@Upswinger Send love to @ktgalb please for “allowing” me to come back.

@Upswinger Who’s on board?

@Upswinger 7 needed

@Upswinger More short bowling.

@Upswinger Over bowled. 6 off 3 with 1 wkt remaining. Kenza.

@Upswinger Four scored. 2 needed.

@Upswinger Yorker. Dot ball.

@Upswinger Dot ball. Quiche arrives.

@Upswinger Edge. Over Wincott. GCC lose.

And here is how Mrs Chairman, Carly Bidwell saw it (briefly):

@CarlyBidders Forget about @Upswinger updates, here’s the real deal…

@CarlyBidders Green pitch, men in mis-matching whites and beer bellies standing around watching a ball, more to follow! [Presumably IBIS in the field]

@CarlyBidders Someone just shouted “yes” people clapped, no idea what the score is! [The question was “Would you like the ham rolled up for tea?”]

@CarlyBidders Spotted cricketer with hand down pants! [Reported to be The Beast]

@CarlyBidders Great shot from Steve W – so I am told! […By Steve W]

@CarlyBidders Teas look good http://twitpic.com/56vd4o

@CarlyBidders Bit keen http://twitpic.com/56vfyn

@CarlyBidders Just seen a Cricketer actually run (though he is from the opposition)

@CarlyBidders Keen man makes friends with Vickery senior! http://twitpic.com/56vjra

@CarlyBidders Karate kid joins GCC http://twitpic.com/56vl4o

@CarlyBidders @TobyTom Claps very loudly! Not sure why he is clapping!

@CarlyBidders @jamiev808 @Upswinger Goring are getting their arse whipped,that’s all you need to know. Over and out!

    Matt’s x-rated head position is not the sort of thing to which young cricketers should be exposed. I recall there was a picture of a slightly larer man playing a beautiul cover drive available. This would be a much better image to use.
