This is the third in the series of 2017 season ‘Farmer White’ Match reports reproduced here from the reports posted on grockles.com at the time. I did not attend the second match of the season, against Lancashire at Old Trafford. Instead, I listened to the online commentary whilst constructing a patio in my garden. I wrote ‘reports’ on what I had heard after the first and second days of the match. Laying a patio is heavy, precise work and I worked until the light went late in the evening. As a consequence, I did not write reports on the third and fourth days. The reports I did write were ‘offbeat’, the second in particular. The reports themselves appear between quotation marks and in a slightly darker font to differentiate them from the contextual information added in the winter of 2017/18.
