Cricket Fun Day 2005

Catterline Clifftoppers Catterline's team for this year's Cricket Fun Day and Mineralwell park was comprised mainly of new and enthusiastic talent and we were unfortunate to come up against to strong teams in our opening games.
We were drawn in the same group as the Tennis Club (the defending champions), The Hookers and the Mums in Touch, and our first game was against the Hookers.
Brendan call the toss correctly and we chose to bat, hoping to put up a good total to put the team from the Hook and Eye under pressure from the start. The first part of the plan worked reasonably well and we posted a total of over 60, which is not bad for a six over innings. Unfortunately our bowling and fielding wasn’t up to defending the score, and the hookers won in the fifth over of their innings, with 4 wickets in hand.
Our second game was slightly easier, as it was against the women and children of Mums in Touch.

Catterline entered a team in Stonehaven Thistle Cricket Club's annual Cricket Fun Day, a one day 7-a-side cricket tournament held at the end of each season. Feeling some need to improve on the previous year's performance, the team decided to practice a little and enlisted the village's "real" cricketers (Denis, Nigel and Stephen) to provide some coaching on the Friday night before the tournament, on a temporary "wicket" hacked out of the playing field by Nigel.
The practice seemed to pay off, as Catterline won their two first round matches and came top of their group, comfortably beating both "P.U.S.S.Y" and the combined Police & Tennis Club team.
