Tracy despairs when Toby backs out of the cricket meeting; he was the only person coming from the cricket team. When Leonard’s at a loose end and mentions he played cricket years ago, Jazzer invites him to the meeting for moral support. Later when only Tracy, Jazzer and Leonard turn up, Tracy’s inspired when Leonard chats about Tony’s enthusiasm for cricket and Jazzer adds that Jim loves being the scorer. If the only people keen on reviving cricket are the ‘oldies’, then Tracy thinks they need to get able-bodied older people in the village – male and female - to form an OAP team. Leonard suggests the more palatable name of ‘veterans’.
Chris and Amy talk on the phone. He comforts her when she continues to worry that they were seen kissing in the churchyard last night. Amy agrees to go round to Chris’s later.
Chris visits Roy on the pretext of making something for Grey Gables’ garden. He works his way round to asking Roy whether he was at the churchyard yesterday evening as Chris thought he saw him. But Roy says he wasn’t.
Amy and Chris are wrong-footed by a surprise visit from angry Fallon who saw them last night in the churchyard. She’s been worrying all day about what to do. She turns on Amy, asking her how she could do that to Alice, when she’s supposed to be her friend? Chris defends Amy, maintaining she hasn’t done anything wrong. But Fallon won’t be appeased – she’s going to tell Alice.
