Nomads far too generous lose to Hambledon
Despite torrential rain in many parts Nomads completed a match with Hambledon with barely a drop. In our most generous way we gifted the game to our hosts who won in the last over of a 40/40 match.
We had set off as if 250 would be the total with John Hess and Andy Peters in fine form hitting 99 in 15 overs but then the innings' momentum ground to a trickle after the top order had thrown their wickets away.
Despite two very good catches by John Hess and Abdul Satter we dropped three catches and missed a run out to assist Hambledon in their run chase. So did 27 extras for our young opening attack had radar problems which our subsequent slow and spin attack was not quite able to correct. For Hambledon Freemantle hit a fluent century but not without chances which should have been taken.
Nomads had 13 players and an umpire present as befits the occassion of our playing such a historic club which was pretty good considering we had 11/12 sodden souls watching the rain in Shropshire on tour as well!.And a very good tea indeed!
