Balcombe II v Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI on Sat 13 Jun 2009 at 2.00
Edenbridge Cricket Club Lost by 7 wkts

Match report Balcombe won the toss and asked us to bat, not the norm in mid sussex league. We got off to worse posible start losing Phil with only 2 runs on the board, however a good 2nd wkt stand of 57 between Alan and Nirage[32] got us back on track. Next up Dan Ott started well but fell for 13. Alan again batting well was now joined by Tim and runs again started to flow untill the experience of Ken Mitchell[68yrs] forced Allan to offer a catch falling 2 short of his fifty. kevin was next to the wkt and shared in a stand of54 with Tim before being trapped lbw for29. Mark[12] and James[8] offered help to Tim as he reached 50[first time in years!].But Tim was unable to help bat all our overs falling for 60. Next out was Kieron[12] lbw off the middle of his bat just as he was getting going. Toby[6no] and Peter[8] saw us to our total of 237 all out.
A reasonable effort but could have done with batting all our overs and a few more runs.
After tea, which was almost up to Hayley standards, our openers Toby and Dan started well Dan getting a wkt in the 6th over when their score was only 26.However this was the last taste of success for another 30 overs when PJ broke the 140 run partnership for the 2nd wkt.The game was as good as over by now and with some big hitting, most of it aimed at Tims wayward bowling they reached the target with 4 overs to spare, their skipper carrying his bat for 118no. Special mention to James who bowled very well in his spell of 6 overs for 20. Another player worth a mention was Kieron behind the stumps with one catch and many fine takes on both sides of the wkt.
