A sunny 19 C day presented itself as well as a square full of worm casts an hr before the start which Jon Steward quickly sorted and produced a good wicket which the oppo who elected to bat could not take full advantage of due to great bowling by Francis, Riyas, Tom, Jonny and Lyn supported by 2 quality catches by Lyn on the boundary and Jonny G at extra cover- we bowled the oppo out for 149 in 37 overs. Fun highlight was Tom's collision with Lyn in the field in his quest to get the dirtiest whites!
Whitchurch’s reply was solid - after losing 2 early wickets , an unfortunate run out of Jon and Scooby getting bowled by one that nibbled on him on the drive, Sid and Woody put on a 60+ partnership and when woody holed out for a powerful 39 and Nick Leadbeater came in to see the team home inside the 23rd over with Whitchurch winning by 7 wickets. Sid finished with an elegant 62 .Couple of nice beers at the ground after with the really nice oppo. We were really good in the field today boys - thoroughly professional performanceGrogie
