Edenbridge Cricket Club Won by 4 wkts

Match report Well bowled Kingy --- we haven't said that for few years !!
A boiling hot & sticky day saw us travel down to Ditchling to take on St James Montefiore.

The bowlers again did us proud & set us up for a decent run chase. Kingy in particular, bowling an unchanged spell of 16 overs, made the batsmen pay dearly for any mistakes. One of the openers appeared to be in a great hurry & rattled along at a frightening pace but was then snared by Hilly's slower ball. If only his old man could bowl a slower ball too ! Apart from one of the other early bats hitting a quick fire 30 the others played less than a supporting role. Kingy ended up with his first Michelle for the club (Michelle five fer for the uninitiated), ably supported by Hilly & Gat.
The bowlers had put us in a great position with 57 overs to score the runs. As it turned out, things were tough with the wicket deteriorating rapidly & getting slower & lower. We crawled along at little more than two an over, although that was all we needed in truth, but it was attritional stuff - one of the bar staff even described it as turgid (good job his beer wasn't the same) ! Mike Martin played the anchor role as wickets fell around him. Then Kingy went down after taking the ball on the knee, prompting fears of a recurrence of his serious knee injury, after he had drawn us close to victory. But it merely set us up for Martin junior to take over where dad left off & for he & Mike Jewsbury to see us through. A great victory in trying conditions.
