The late 2nd X1 report for yesterday from skippers Mark Woolley and Paul Nagle.

PTGCC 2nd XI vs The Lee

There was huge rejoicing in the PTG dressing room prior to the match when it was revealed that senior club management had drafted in Nagle and Woolley to skipper the side. In a seismic shift from the soviet era dictats of the prior management, the team universally welcomed the fun, laid back and inclusive style of the popular new young leadership.

The new captains shrewdly decided to lose the toss and field. A gambit which seemed to pay off as the aged Lee openers scored at a crumbly run rate of 1.5. The plan to leave them in, and then chase down 60, was scuppered by fine spells from Damo and Momsie who insisted on taking wickets at inopportune moments. Sean chipped in with a fine strike, and the Penn side displayed an unaccustomed athletic exuberance in the field. Judgey in particular fielded like a man possessed. By a three toed sloth.

The Lee closed on 139 for 5, a steep target for a Penn team whose batting has variously been described as weak, frail, nervous and crap.

Despite a steady start from Judgey, the Penn innings followed it's normal course - the steady clatter of wickets matched only by the constant braying of the Lee's wicketkeeper (voted most annoying opposition player of the season by a significant majority). In a shock turn of events, a fine partnership between Doug and Momsie seemed to give the home side hope - only to be dashed when both were dismissed by the Lee's 6 year old leg spinner. Despite some last ditch heroics from Damo, the teams reliance on Le Canard D'or to hit the winning runs proved misplaced, and Penn came up an agonising 7 runs short.

The opposition were partaicularly complimentary about the state of the wicket - one of their number saying it was the finest strip he had encountered in 50 years of top level competitive ploughing.

Disciplinary footnote: Thomas Peck gave the co-captain's son out stumped, and has been dismissed from the club.

Match reports for yesterday below...

Saturday 12th September
1st XI v The Lee

The final game of the season was played in unusually surrounding as the 1st team headed the The Lee for their 1st away match of the year. The one familiarity was Ajith appearing a mere 3 minutes before the start of play. It’s hard to be cross at someone with such a smile on his face, particularly when his explanation for always being late was, ‘I just get lost in my thoughts and lose track of time.’

Penn batted first and lost two early wickets before Jake Wilson (40) and Will Stonehouse (28) formed a good partnership to rebuild the innings. Ajith Pillai (22) joined Jake for another decent partnership before Lochie Christopherson added an excellent 42 from 35 balls. Nobody else made double figures as Penn were dismissed for 167.

The Lee got off to an excellent start putting on 59 for the 1st wicket before Kenzie Christopherson bowled one of their openers with a peach of a delivery. Kenzie picked up another 2 wickets to finish with 3 for 48. Unfortunately, they were the only three wickets Penn took as The Lee chased down the total inside 25 overs.

Although the results towards the end of the season did not go our way, the future looks bright with so many youngsters showing such promise.

Unfortunately the match report for the 2nd X1 is late as the captains have not provided it. This will be posted once the 2nd X1 captains from yesterday get their act together
