Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI v Ashdown on Sat 07 Jun 2008 at 2.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won By 6 Wickets

Match report On an overcast day with a lot of moisture in the air it was always going to be a difficult decision on what to do first and I went out to the middle with the full intention of loosing the toss. With plan A working we were made to bowl, a decision that on reflection turned out to be the right thing to do.

Edenbridge for the second week running put in an outstanding fielding performance with not one catch going down and no cheap singles being given away. This lead to Ashdown Forest being dismissed for a well below par score of 64. Good news full bowling points. In an excellent performance by all 4 bowlers Hilly was particularly unlucky and had to work hard for his wicket. Gatt for the second week running was the pick of the bunch and was selfish again picking up 4 for 6.

You would think that with only 64 runs to chase and plenty of time in which to do it that the innings which followed would have been a walk in the park. Unfortunately this Edenbridge we are talking about and we have a habit of making the very simple look very complicated.

With three quick wickets we found ourselves at 16-3 and I was starting to get the jitters. However an excellent partnership between graham and seb steadied the ship and put us into a winning position. Seb was unlucky not to see the innings out with a thick outside edge being his downfall. Graham and George finsihed off preceedings and it seemed only fitting that Graham should hit the winning runs capping off in the end what turned out to be a solid performance.

I understand that the final part of this match report should include a review of the tea. Mrs Woodman did us proud with an execellent tea, the omlet was a real winner and I give this a score of 8.8/10.
