v Aldbourne Sun 10 September 2017 (Win)

Hello and Thank you,

Here already, the final game of the season and after a delay of 21/2 hours for drizzle a shorter overs version of the game got underway.
Bating first Aldbourne scored 134 for 7 off their 25 overs. 9 bowlers were used with five of them taking a wicket, the best being 1 for 2 from Angus. Rob L did take a brilliant( or lucky) catch and Dave managed to put two down. Our response did not get off to a best of starts, with Andrew out for nought after 3 balls and Wes following him for nought in the third over. Rob W held the innings together, carrying his bat for 67* ( his fifty off 61 balls in 69 mins). Ablely supported by knocks from Fiz of 27 and Dave 23*, Rob W had the final say, hitting the winning runs with a four to win the game with 7 balls to spare.

Another season over, but for those interested in playing or just watching, the indoor cricket starts in October. Fixtures will be circulated when they are available and with plans for an end of season/Christmas get together and next season cricket tour being put together, it just remains for me to say ;
THANK YOU
A thank you to those, that helped on the maintenance of the pavilion and ground, to those that helped on the pitch preparation, to those who helped  to get the gear out, to those that helped put the gear away, to those who obtained water for the matches, to those who provided teas, to those who laid the teas out, to those who washed up afterwards, to those who contributed towards match balls, to those who made donations, to those that turned up to play, to those that organised the teams, to those that ran the club, to those that supported the club and to those I have forgotten to mention above.

Indoor League update

Approaching the half way point of the season and although we got off to a good start by winning the first two games, we have subsequently slipped down the table, following four defeats.

We also lost our cup game, so our only hope of silverware will now be the Shield competition.

Indoor Final Results

The final game of the indoor season saw us manage a win against Cornwood C, but it was to no avail as we still finished bottom of the first division.

Good fielding and bowling restricted Cornwood C to 62 runs, an easy target you would think, but until Ollie hit three sixes and some more we were struggling.

Cornwood C 62ao, Andy 2 for 20, Ollie 1 for 9, Mt Edgcumbe 63 for 3, Ollie 25no, Andy 20no, a toss up for man of the match, my vote goes to Ollie for the the over that turned the game our way.

The week before we lost to Plympton 122 for 5, when we could only manage 74 for 4, Jon Cummings top scored with 21.

Andy finished third in the batting averages for the league with and average of 74.33
Finishing 10th, 11th and 12th with the most runs scored in the league
