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 ;
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. Thank you all for the season just gone.
