WHEATHAMPSTEAD lost a close encounter at home to Letchworth II on Saturday in Division Three.

Batting first, Wheato got off to a poor start losing three quick wickets for 22. An excellent 100-run stand between Chris and Keith Martin recovered the situation taking the score to 140 when a mistimed pull shot saw Keith Martin succumb for 51. Chris Martin went on to make 75 and with mixed helpings from the lower order batsmen, eventually posted a score of 197-9 after 53 overs.

With the Wheato bowlers putting in a lacklustre performance for once, Letchworth batted well throughout and won the game by seven wickets with three overs to spare.

There was better news from WCC II as they cruised to victory against Holtwhite Trinibis II in Division Eight. Chasing 128 runs thanks to Guy Wilson's five-wicket haul, Wheato eased home thanks to Peter Robbins 28 and Man of the Match Guy Wilson's 23.

With eight victories so far in the season it is hard to believe WCC II are still out of contention for a promotion spot.

On Sunday Wheathampstead entertained Walthamstow Entertainers and won a 40-over match, mainly thanks to a blistering 96 from Adam Robbins who was brilliantly caught at deep mid wicket going for his maiden century. WCC's score of 197 was never at risk.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
