Boyd breaks into Palace

Stebbins takes two
Happy man: Stebbins takes two

Was this our finest hour? It took less than that to demolish a stuttering Chats Palace, one man down and another with dodgy knees.

On an appalling pitch, more a slab of concrete with a ragged cloth on top, Gary "Shane" Boyd bamboozled a succession of careless batsmen.

Taking the second over Boyd had Ossie Joseph trapped lbw with his first ball. Raj Thind fell to the second, snicking a low ball straight into keeper Jim Thornhill's gloves.

After Jonathan Stebbins had clean bowled skipper Dan Counihan, Boyd removed Lucius's bails as he attempted to sweep him to leg. Next ball James swung and missed, bails flying.

Stebbins clincally despatched opener Robert Devaney with a swift ball that clattered the stumps.  Chats had all gone for 34, with Boyd winning a career-best four wickets for 13 runs.

Chasing this modest total Philip Barrass narrowly escaped an early dismissal after he was dropped by the keeper. Jon Idle, too, was fortunate not to be out to a ball from Joseph that kept low and narrowly missed the stumps, beating both Idle and the keeper.

But in the end it took just over five overs to reach the target, Barrass speeding the Old Fallopians on their way with two huge sixes.

Four wickets for plucky Boyd
