Match Report: 19th July, 6:00PM, Marshalswick, Sandridge CC

Result: Won by 7 runs

After a one year break it was great to play Anil and his team again at their adopted home of Sandridge CC. For once we managed to turn up with 11 players helped enormously by the next generation and with several father and son duos had a somewhat reduced average age. Marshalswick only had 9 players so to even things up (and massive thanks to Dan Dytham for volunteering) we played 10 per side.

Inserted by MWCC, the Baileys opended the batting and got us off to a swift start (Nick B 29 NO) continued by Tim J (25 NO) so that we were 93-2 at the half-way stage. At a reduced rate and we managed to get to 161-5 off the 20 overs including contributions from Steve S (29) and Ben D (27 NO).

Despite some good bowling by our more youthful players - best figures 3 overs, 1 for 17 by "King" Louis Jenkins - MWCC were in touch with the run rate after 13 overs when Ben D (3 over, 2 for 21) and Alex S ( 3 overs, 2 for 11) came on to tighten things up and enable a tight win by 7 runs. 

With many good performances it is hard to pick anybody out, but a great performance meaning CCC have won 5 on the trot!
