60's continue winning trail...

Over 60's achieved the double over Oxfordshire at Shipton-under-Wychwood with a convincing 9 wkt win yesterday.  After losing the toss on a hot day under blue skies (cheers Danny), Glos'shire bowlers bowled in great partnerships with Danny and Mondo bowling their 9 overs each and doing the early damage, ably supported by Nick and Thorny who bowled through their nine and continued to take wickets keeping the lid on the Oxfordshire total.  Bob and Bill wrapped up the tail and bowled Oxfordshire for 139 in the 45th over.

With no demons in the wicket set in a wonderful setting, Danny (67) and Bill (64 no) shared an opening 120 partnership before Danny was bowled after having a couple of close shaves. (In-joke which Danny will tell you about!).  Colly joined Bill and eased past the Oxfordshire total, which keeps Glos'shire at the top of the table with 4 wins out of 4.... Hurrah!
