Match Report: 16th June, 6:00PM, Royal vet College, Rothampstead Park

Result: Win by 2 wickets

It was decided that Royal vets bat first but little did they know that we are just like South Africa in the field at the moment.  No drop catches, superb run outs, excellent bowling (Ben) and Ian running around the field like a youngster (amazing).  After all that we managed to keep them to 105 for 7, now our turn.

Two wickets down for 11 runs and then three for 19 - not looking good.  Myself (Fred) and Ian took the game to the young bowlers of RVC and we shared a 51 partnership which got us back on track. I retired on 29 and wickets began to fall again but then old faithfull Nick T came in and hit another 25. Wickets then fell and I was back in again requiring 8 runs off 4 overs.  Luckily for me, Jonty was still there and Nick to come back so no problem.  We won by 2 wickets with 1 .5 overs to spare.  Wicket keeping and 34 not out, I think Crabtree have found a new Alec Stewart (it’s easy this game).  Last thing for the selectors; three matches this season…all won! (Fred ).
