Edenbridge Cricket Club Sunday 1st XI v Brasted Invicta on Sun 26 Apr 2009 at 2.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Won By 9 wickets

Match report A magnificent day saw the start of the new season for the sunday sides. Edenbridge fielded a young and exuberant team with our new captain, 'Bantin' missing (probaly for the better). On a hard but greenish pitch stand in skipper Ninja won the toss and put Brasted Invicta into bat.

Edenbridge started well with few runs coming off the first overs, the few runs that did come went through the slip cordon despite skip's (Ninja) athleticism they somehow found a way through.Although it wasnt to long till we struck with our first wicket with another coming in quick succession. Credit to our opening bowlers for this start, Brasted began to rebuild until more wickets fell and there innings became very stagmented and it became hard for them too score. However they fought back despite Sam Thurstan's 4 wicket haul after looking like they would be struggling for 120 to gain a very respectable 157 for 9.

After an excellent tea from Mrs Gibbs, Edenbridge went out to bat runs were found quickly by both openers. Goodhew and Boakes sharing a stand of 77 for the first wicket, unfortunately boakes was run out for a excellent 44 due to some misunderstanding within the calling. Smith then came to the crease and gave good support to win the match by 9 wickets. An excellent start to the season and hopefully much more to come, due to this superb performance 'Bantin' could struggle for his place in the team back, as winning is not always something he can get grip of.
