Festival First Day v Westminster
A lovely day in Adelaide (34 degrees on the barometer, as invented by George FitzRoy's ancestors) and all the boys happily billeted with generous St Peter's families. Today's cricket was much better - we restricted Westminster to 183 all out, with good performances for Jamie Roy - 4 wickets, 3 wickets from brother Mikey, and excellent figures for Frankie Ashworth 1-16 off 9. Good fielding, too, all round, and two catches for both James Tugwell and Freddie Thorpe. Our reply started well with solid contributions from Jamie Abbott and Justin Langen, and an excellent innings of 50 from Elliott Charles who led the way with positive running and judicious shot-making. Teddy James provided some fireworks towards the end, but we ended up just short in a really exciting game.
Rain forecast for tomorrow (25ml at 95%) means an early start to tomorrow's game v St Paul's Hamilton NZ - 8.30 am. Global warming apparently.
Happy Birthday George!
