The new season started with a somewhat disappointing performance from BP seconds. Perhaps the exertions of getting the field ready and making sure the makeshift changing and toilet facilities were satisfactory distracted the mind a bit. Nonetheless a first innings total of 111 against Cawood never looked like being enough. From being 56-2 and 100-5 Percy failed to post the 150 felt needed to be competitive.Only captain Noble with 40 and James Hodge with 22 causing the scorers any real work. Cawoods response was solid and despite impressive opening spells from Jon Anderson and Tom Belt the breakthrough didn’t come until 70 were on the board with first change Mike Furze taking the seasons first wicket. Furze and Ferguson pinned down Cawood with Mike finishing with 9-2-23-2 and Martyn Ferguson with 10-2-26-3 but sadly just not enough runs to force the victory.
