 We was robbed

The Clarkes brothers' Dad suggested that his sons had 'cocked up' the scorebook and scoreboard and that in fact Nomads had won which is what the scorebook says as it is written! A remarkable century by Tom Clarke but apart from his brother precious little else. In defeat Nomads drank well at the Imber Sports Club Bar and duly celebrated Tom's great debut.   

The non appearance of Ian Smith  who had confirmed with the Match Manager-charlton Lamb, at the previous Sunday's  Gaieties match and in the presence of Matt Burton was irritating but would have been a trifle forgotten had it not become a major cause celebre within Gaieties CC leading to Ian Smith's violent assault on Charlton Lamb at a later Gaieties match at Bromley Common, the day before Nomads match with Stowe Templars. Much as Harold Pinter strove to patch things up, the feud continued so much so that Charlton Lamb never played for Gaieties again much to advantage of Nomads CC until his untimely death in 2013 March!
