Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI v East Grinstead III on Sat 09 May 2009 at 2.00
Match was Drawn

Match report Right, sorry once again for the delay in this match report being put up, the cries of bring back Danny Ott have been noted and I will ask him if he minds adding the results up online whilst also studying for his degree.

Alas to matters in hand. An interesting start to the league season one would think with a puzzling performance considering the week before. The fielding was excellent and on a batting strip Hilly and Tim Cox bowled exeptionally well, not to mention the expert fielding with some good catches being held including Hilly off his own bowling (I didn't know he could react that quickly)and well I have to mention mine don't I. More on me to follow. This kept to oppo to a competitive, but we felt getable target of 191.

The chase began in extrodinary circumstances with Tim Cox getting out for a diamond duck after not thinking to move the sidescreen. Then followed a series of wickets which saw our batsmen getting out to some rather silly shorts to some very ordinary bowling. So it came with just over 16 overs remaining that I, the captain, with a batting average of -1, had to step out to the crease and play a captains innings. Throughout this battle I lost Stephen on the way, however Jon Watts and I saw us through to the end. No thanks to Jon who after shouts of no,no, NO, NOOO from me ran a single to see me face out the final over.

I think all in all East Grinstead will see this as a points lost gain and us as a points gained.

Tea: I good solid tea from Graham Cox this week, however after careful consideration from, well, erm Graham, we felt the tea lacked variety. That is unless you like Cheese and Pickle sandwiches.

Champagne Moment: I think that has to be the conversation at tea; for those who weren't there the news that Graham and Jon are now getting bees and hens repsectively was of great interest to Tim and Hilly.
