On Monday Rowland found out this weeks FC match with Sussex Snowmen would be his last for Whamo.
He could’ve been forgiven for giving up on his time & focussing on the next challenge. The 34 yo had other ideas, producing 1 of the finest performances of his career. In the 1st innings he came to the crease with Wham 149-5. Dropped 3rd ball he refocused & steered the tail to 210 all out, facing 117 balls for his gritty 28.
2nd innings he entered the fray with Wham 63-5. An expertly paced innings saw him finish up 41 not out guiding us to a 234 run lead.
Whams top scorer still wasn’t happy that was enough & led by example in the field. Vocal as ever, it was he who turned the game back in Wham’s favour with a remarkable catch to dismiss Harrison. Wham won by 17 runs.
Rowland the hero!
