Edenbridge Cricket Club redundant v St Mary Platt on Tue 26 Jul 2005 at 5.45
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won 7 wickets

Match report A magnificent win at the last scheduled match of the season.
St Mary Platt are new opponents and brought along a mixed U12 and U11 team to play against our U11 team (including three U10's).
SMP batted first and looked intimidating with both openers at around 6ft tall and 14 stones. Fortunately our early bowlers including Bee Melville, George Bushell, Luke Wynne-Jones and Thomas Longworth pinned them down and benefitted from desperate strokeplay. Liam Melville snaffled two catches and wickets tumbled as SMP slumped to 48 for 5 after 12 overs.
Our bowling and fielding remained tight as SMP were restricted to 101 runs from their 20 overs, a testing target against an older team.
Much rested on our opening pair of Vickery and Phillips as the light faded and drizzle persisted.
Fortunately our openers did not let us down and 49 was put on for the opening wicket with Phiilips going on to make a rapid 36 by the time he was third out with only 25 needed.
Useful runs came from Wynne-Jones flashing blade and the team were steered home by Kieran Phillips with doughty defence and lightening running between the wickets unsettling the crowding and baying fielders. Rory Martin (a capable stand-in wicky) and Ethan Johns then entertained us to some carefree strokeplay piercing the field at will.
A most satisfying evening of wich we can all be proud. Next year I suspect all the SMP players will be over 6 feet tall. Lucky it is cricket and not rugby!
