Hooks and Kirk blow out KMCC cobwebs
In the absence of the skipper,Brad, and Groom Goldie, Hooksy captained KMCC on a saturday for the first time and opened the bowling to boot. At the bottom end the experienced campaigner Peter Kirk showed what he should have been doing the previous week against Studley, but had been curiously overlooked, conceding few runs and picking up two early wickets. The prize wicket of Bill Davis however belonged to the erstwhile Kiwi Richard Hooks who excelled throughout his 12 overs. The only blot on the KM performance was a quickfire 48 from the giant figure of Dickinson and once Hooks (4-11) and Kirk (4-18) returned Blubberhouses succumbed to 117 all out.
The KMCC openers (CHC 36, Nattress 34) posted their first 50 partnership in the reply and confidently took the game to the Blubberhouses attack and although a couple of late wickets and the run out of Shedley on zero blotted an otherwise excellent Kirkby performance it wasn't long before 6 points were secured and Studley was becoming a distant memory.119-5 at the close.Return to previous screen
