Wirral Cricket Club were playing Haslington in Cheshire League Division 3 at the weekend.
Having bowled their oponents out for 108 on a damp early season wicket, they were feeling confident.
Whereupon this happened.
We'd won our first game of the season by scoring 203, so once we'd knocked them over for 108 we were feeling positive. We'd bowled and fielded well, but going into tea we knew it's be a competitive game.Three balls in we lost our first wicket. We probably began to panic a bit around the time the third one went down. I came in at number 9 - I was supposed to be 10 or 11 but I was the only one padded up. The first runs came after we were 8 wickets down, with a leg bye. There were huge cheers.
Bit of a shocker, but not the lowest score ever recorded.
That honour belongs to Somerset club Langport, who were dismissed for zero against Glastonbury in a 1913 match.
