Match Report: 1st July, 2:00PM, The Holly Bush, Rothampstead Park

Result: Crabtree win

 Chilly but dry- Sunday 1st July on the lower pitch at Rothampstead. Basically a lovely afternoon spent in great company. We Batted 1st .....Highlights of the match:

Our Innings

Ben Newton 52 runs, Tim Jenkins 43 getting us to a very respectable 192 in 32 Overs (35 available but lower order-including myself-didnt quit grasp the concept!!)

Lunch interval- fantastic sarnies and the like provided by many team enthusiasts under the direction of Andy Baker.

Bush Innings

Very tight bowling from our chaps gave their openers Cresswell and Threlfall (Batwell but Cressfallen- don't want to give too much away...) little opportunity to score. Maiden overs from Goodwin, Arnerich, Cole and Newton with a great opening spell from Goodwin and Jim King (21 runs off 7 overs) combined with a strong finish from Blanchard (top wicket taker) meant the Bush fell well short of the total required giving Crabtree yet another Victory.

Well done to all but especially skippers Ian and Andy who make playing for Crabtree such fun and enjoyable
