Despite raining on and off throughout the day, the parents vs kids game went ahead on a sticky wicket that made batting difficult. Highlight of the day seemed to be a glorious straight drive for four from the bowling of his son Harry. But the very next ball Fowler Snr went for the same big shot missed it and over went his middle stump, much to the delight of Fowler Junior. Martin got one back for the parents, getting Rupert out but Ed showed his dad Will how its done with a great ball which made a mess of his dad’s stumps.
The family rivalry kept coming over after over for what was a lot of fun and £240 going towards a desperately needed artificial wicket as an added bonus. For those that missed out, we’ll be trying again soon but we hope for more favourable weather and a social / bbq to follow, watch this space.
