v Callington 2nds (H)
The season has begun...
Rain halts good start
Boconnoc's return to Division Two East this past weekend sadly like most of the league programme throughout the county ended in an abandonment.
The visiting Callington skipper won the toss and put Ian Hunter's men in. Michael Blake and Gary Spencer got the home side off to a decent start putting on 50-odd for the 1st wicket. Blake (27) was caught at mid wicket after hitting the ball behind square for a four the previous ball off the bowling of Alex Mortimore. That would be the only wicket to fall as Jon Niblett joined Spencer at the crease and they saw the score onto 139. There would be a couple of rain breaks with the non-batting Boconnoc players rushing on and off with the covers. Spencer finished up on 38 not out, in an innings which included 5 fours and Niblett scored 32 not out, again his innings featured 5 fours.
During the second rain break tea was taken and at roughly 5:30pm, Hunter and the Callington skipper shook hands on the decision to end proceedings for the day.
Boconnoc team: M. Blake, G. Spencer, J. Niblett, R. Foot (wk), J. Sleep, I. Hunter (c), P. Delbridge, K. Spencer, M. Frith, J. Stacey. C. Neville
