Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI v Brunswick Village on Sat 30 Jul 2016 at 13:30
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won by 3 wkts

Match report At last, following major reconstructive surgery on a knee & a lengthy recuperation period which included a two week holiday, retirement & several days watching various cricket matches, your roving reporter returns to the fray.
Brunswick came to Blossoms as runaway league leaders & a reputation for being high scorers, both of which were obviously key factors in Skipper Woodman winning the toss & inserting the opposition. Kingy & Gat opened up with suitably miserly spells keeping the Brunswick Boys firmly in check with the first 20 overs going for only 66. Enter the wiley off breaks of Mike Martin, prompting a mini collapse towards the end of the innings & the last seven wickets falling in six overs for 33 runs. Even the returning Coxy got a bowl, reeling off 10 overs -- more than he's bowled in the last season & a half ! Shame he went for 5 an over !! Great spell from Mike though.
Chasing down 193 in just 43 overs was always going to be a big ask but Woody & Joycey set off apace, posting an opening stand of 35 at 5 an over. The skipper then set about the bowling cutting & pulling anything remotely short on his way to a fine 58. Kingy chipped into the second wicket partnership of 83 which set up the charge towards victory. Coxy coming in at an unacostemed number 5 hit ten 4s in his 47 but then fell when we were just four runs short of a win. A flurry of late wickets caused some concern for Woody but all was well in the end as we completed a really fine win over a strong side, with just eight balls left. A good team performance, fine fielding, good tidy bowling & depth in the batting (along with 43 Extras !!).
