On the last double-header of the season, Whitchurch came close in matches against Treasury Valuers on Saturday and Wayfarers on Sunday.
Over 200 were scored by each side in the first game, with Nick Turner making 94, the first of two nearly-hundreds this weekend. The match went to the the final ball with Cormac and Craig at the crease; but poor old Craig stumbled whilst striving for the run that would have tied the match, leaving us maddeningly one run short.
The second came on Sunday, where Scooby struck 92 in another vain chase (also his first 50). This time we were chasing a monumental 271 made by the Wayfarers, and despite scores from Tony (42), Yusuf (30) and useful contributions from the Chapmans, Woody and Andy, we feel 14 short.
Some exquisite ground fielding from the younger crowd remains in the memory, especially Matt K, Scooby and, er, Vaughany, too. As does a great catch taken on the boundary by Woody.
