v Cheesewring 14 July 2019 (home)

A lightening fast outfield and teams depleted because of that other game of cricket somewhere in England, meant it was likely to be a good day for batsmen and not a good one for bowlers!

After loosing the toss, we were in the field and although Ahmed picked up a couple of early wickets, the runs flowed. 163 for 4, became 207 for 6 with the opposition finishing with 244 all out. Ahmed picked up three, Rob L two, with one apiece for Dave, Andrew and Ben.
A big ask? Andrew and Ben opened and after 10 overs we were scoring at 8 an over without loss, Andrew retired injured on 53, his fifty off 41 balls in 40 mins. Ben was joined by Nurez and the scoring continued, after 20 overs, 161 without loss. Ben completed his fifty in 52 balls in 67 mins, eventually out for 66. Nurez continued to dominate the bowling, reaching fifty off 24 balls in 24 mins and retired on reaching his 100 off 57 balls in 67 mins, with the score on 240. Tom and Barry saw us through to victory, without further loss. The run continues.

The New Inn

Fans of The New Inn maybe disappointed, it has recently been refurbished to include a roof terrace, a very neutral colour scheme and parque flooring.

The traditional boozer styling has gone, along with ale casks behind the bar and nearly all of the pub games.

However the toilets have been greatly improved and have benefitted from a bright selection of glossy tiles.

On the 6th May 2007 Mount Edgcumbe played against Cheesewring CC at Upton Cross.

Batting first we set a then club record score of 271-1.  John Fearon carried his bat to score 114*, his maiden century.  He opened with Steve Boyd (62) in a first wicket partnership of 105.  Martin Moore joined John to score 59* and help post a record second wicket partnership of 166*, which was also the all-time highest score for any wicket.

This may have been the only instance ever of an innings featuring two century partnerships or  an innings  where all three batsmen scored half centuries.
