Match Report: 31st August, 1:00PM, Manland, Rothampstead Park

Result: Lost by 5 wickets

The final match of the season against Manland was played in gorgeous cricket weather on a pudding of a pitch. Upon winning the toss Manland sensing an advantage elected to bowl. Bailey and Newton weathered the early erratic bounce and looked set for a large partnership, unfortunately Richard in going for quick single pulled a muscle and became our second casualty (the first being Cole playing golf!). Batsmen came and went but through it all Ben timed his batting to perfection to score 104 no. After tea, despite some fine bowling by Nick Bailey, the pitch lost it's bite and some big hitting by Manland saw then reach the total in 28 overs.
