16 JUNE 2018 --- 1PM
|LEICESTER ELECTRICITY SPORTS WITH TIGERS WELFORD RD IN THE BACKGROUND|
|NEEL GANDHI TOP SCORE FOR LOUGHBOROUGH TOWN WITH 137|
|LEICESTER CITY'S KINGPOWER STADIUM OVERSEES PROCEEDINGS|
|ELECTRICITY SPORTS WOULD SOON BE JUMPING FOR JOY|
The star of the show is the double deck pavilion which is rather difficult to describe with its many features needless to say the windows on the top deck have been replaced from the former mini slatted variety.
|LOUGHBOROUGH OPENER GANDHI KEEPS HIS EYES ON THE BALL|
Tea break and off to said store again this time to sample their wonderfully exotic salad bar, yes you've heard it right SALAD, in the mixed up lyrics of The Proclaimers song 'fish and chips no moooore'!
|ANDY DEACON LAUNCHES HIMSELF INTO ANOTHER BIG HIT|
|DEACON STRIKES ONE THROUGH THE OFFSIDE|
Electricity Sports were more than up for this and showed their intent when Deacon hit the first ball after the restart for 4 and with Phillips bludgeoning the ball around the ground they found themselves grabbing victory. The final ball of the 35th over saw Phillips launch it well beyond the ropes to set off some joyous scenes at the front of the clubhouse with a victory that had been set up by the superbly measured century from Deacon of 118.
|SPORTS OVER THE LINE WITH A BIT MOR BIG HITTING|
A sharp bit of movement allowed departure on the 8.05 from Leicester to base and an enjoyable day was backed up by over hearing a young child on the train discussing with his grandma about their pets he was telling her he had two pets one he bought and one he found, to which she enquired 'what's the one you found'? He promptly replied 'a caterpillar'!
