Match Report: 3rd July, 2:00PM, The Holly Bush, Wheathampstead CC

Result: Lost by 1 wicket

Before the match started I would have put the probability of at least one of Bailey, Lloyd, Newton and Jenkins scoring a 50 in the same category as Germany not missing a penalty! Germany went on miss three! We batted first on a reasonable wicket at Wheathampstead and crept to 103 in 37 overs. Nick T top scoring with 21 only two other batsmen getting into double figures. However, bolstered by the usual high quality Blanchard family tea we set about the impossible and very nearly pulled it off. Excellent bowling by the two youngsters, Dan Dytham 1-12 and Nick Bailey 3-10 set the opportunity for Matthew Rees 3-15 to almost snatch an unlikely win at the end. A very tight game played in an excellent spirt.
