Result: Won by 57 runs.
We arrived at the ground as a gentle Southwesterley blew the clouds
Northward.By tea-time it was a warm September day.Stragglers began
cautiously.We were pegged down by the Woolvine brothers.Only guest,
Dom Hand from Lymington got on top of the bowling with a classy 70.
41 extras helped us to A modest 160.Tea found the match manager
locked out of his car with the Port inside!
Brigands also found it slow going.Only two reached double figures.
Parker scythed through the Brigands like an MTB on steroids!
With help from guest Josh Royan and Old trouper Billy King-Harman,
fresh from his exploits in France.Ian Perry,having not unduly troubled the scorer applied himself
to the car to rescue the port. With the aid of two wire coat hangers.
Stragglers won convincingly by 98 runs.Before the port was liberated.
The warm summer evening ended on the terrace of the Bat & Ball.
AA arrived with much technical paraphernalia and we saved the Port.
The AA finally gained access…with the aid of a coat hanger!
