We found ourselves in a unusual position this week, having to take the field first. 3 or 4 dropped catches later, Chris another dolly, giving some of their batsmen a second or even third life. Chris did pick up a couple wickets, but they looked in good shape at 117 for 3. Josh and Ben bowled well, but were unlucky picking up a wicket apiece and Andrew and Dave chipped in with 1 and 2 wickets respectively. Tom P finished them off with 3 wickets in 9 balls, remember he is on a hat trick the next time he bowls. A good fight back to restrict PCO’s to 173 all out.
Top four batsmen have an average greater than 25, Andy over 50, Luke the only batsmen to finish with a strike rate greater than 100. Ben hit the most sixes and Andy batted for 979 minutes. Matt and Andy (2) hit centuries.
Top two bowlers had an average better than 15, Dave took the most wickets with 25, including the only 5 for of the season.
Two new club records, Andy 155 runs and Andy and Chris best 2nd wkt partnership of 173. Lots of personal bests.
Ben the only player to reach double figures with the catches
See how you faired.

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.
