JUST OFF MAID MARION'S WAY
Setting off at 7.40 A.M I picked up Bob Procter at Bardsey and then Brian Workman at Sheffield.We were setting off to Nottingham Sports Ground or it used to be called Boots Ground on which Brian Workman had played cricket.
The ground is next to Nottingham Forest football ground.
This was not to be with Adam David Tilcock from Nottingham and Brett Alan Hutton from Doncaster putting on a stand of over170 against some poor Yorkshire bowling.During the afternoon there seem to be no enthusiasm and a lot of short bowling which enabled Tilcock to score a century.At tea the score was 315 for 8.
After tea Nottingham went on to secure over a hundred lead and were able to get the wicket of Tattersall before we left at 6.00P.M. Arriving home at 9.00P.M. over 12 hours of driving and sitting in the sun. We left Nottingham via Maid Marion's Way to the motorway.
Day off tomorrow before Weetwood Friday.
