A disappointing pitch with irregular bounce was by no means ideal for this
limited over showdown between Islington¹s 2 main clubs.
W: 129-9 (40 overs). P Demetri 26. J Baglivi 8-3-11-3.
P: 97-10 (34). P Attwood 36. J Taper 5-1-4-3
Opting to chase, P
did exactly that as Peter Demetri imposed himself & some misfielding &
missed shys left him as W¹s top scorer. John Baglivi again showed himself to
be W¹s nemesis with 3 wickets but although adequate, P did not really
control the bowling overall as the seamers tended to blow hot & cold.
had been enough loose balls to make W confident that they could defend the
the total & with this mind their efforts showed a greater degree of
discipline. That said it was not an imposing total & there was little excuse
that top scorer Paul Attwood found no one able to support him for long
enough as P found themselves dismissed with a further 6 overs unspent.
