Match Report: 25th May, 6:00PM, Final CC, Greenwood Park

Crabtree 134-5 Final C.C 126-4

Result: Crabtree win by 8 runs

On a dry but windy evening at Greenwood Park Crabtree won an absorbing match. We rarely seem to play well here but our mascot Gary was with us. FInal C.C won the toss and decided to bowl first. We started hesitantly unsettled by the setting sun in our eyes, the wind and the numerous wides and only Ian (26no) batted well. Then came a surge with Chris P (26no), Jonty (16) and Gary (26no) all striking the ball well and scuttling between the wickets along with Chris H at the end to give us a good total of 134.Extras was the highest score at 29.

Neil (0-10 off 3) and Martin (0-12 off 2) opened the bowling strongly followed by good overs  from Danny we have missed you - and Chris H. Final C.C's batting was better than their bowling but eventually Simon (1-23 off 3) broke through with a tempting spell before that man Gary (2-18 off 3) bamboozled them - he could have taken three wickets if Graham had held a catch. Jonty made up for it by taking a catch at cover with a huge smile on his face after. At the end Ian (0-18 off 3) and Chris P steered us home with some tight bowling. Rob had an excellent game behind the stumps and was unlucky not to be given a catch and a run out.  Two other highlights -  Ian running out their captain with a direct hit and Gary ambling to a disapp earing boundary to allow them to run 5.  However a great bowling and fielding performance by Crabtree
