Strongroom rocked up with a real old-skool touring party that turned back the years - including Messr’s Wilson, Patel and Rahman, but sadly ‘Skip’ Horne had to withdraw at the last minute. However, sadly, the backdrop for the tour was an iffy weather forecast.
Grant was skipper, and promptly lost the toss. Harberton selected to bat first, and Westlake played really well for his half-century. Thompson and Hartridge also played nicely. DP had a run out and bowled well to snare two wickets. Ben Hartridge showed his class with a pair of deep mid-wicket 6’s off Joe Rahman. However, just as Joe was plotting his response, inevitably, a formidably grey sky came in from Dartmoor, and that was that. We all relocated down the hill at the Church House Inn, and the competitiveness simply shifted to the pool table.
