Price Bailey (126/6; 20 overs)
Remnants (125/3; 20 overs)
by 1 run.

It's not often that Remnants come up against a team captained by a transvestite, but that's what happened today when the beautiful gender-bending supermodel Colina (also known to go by the alias Colin Anderson) led a team from her-- er, his work, Price Bailey Accountants, against us.

They batted very well, making a healthy 126, whilst we tried a first-time wicket keeper for the second game in a row. Today it was Robin Woolley's turn and, like Phil Marshall the the previous night, he did pretty well at what is a deceptively difficult job.

Our run chase started pretty quickly, with Phil Marshall (as distinct from captain Watson) getting a brisk 15 and Andy Owen holding the innings together with a great 69 (bringing his season's average down from infinity to a mere 221.00). Tony Malik let a ``daisy cutter'' from Colina slip under his bat (which we'll no doubt hear plenty about whenever Clan Anderson is around), but by this stage things looked to be under control with wickets in hand. However sheet-anchor Andy got out with an over remaining, leaving Phil Watson and John Young to apply the finishing touches to a morale-boosting victory. Alas we ended up missing out by a single run, the third Remnants loss in a row.
