Match Report

Our annual fixture against Christ College was played in fine weather and was a good match.

It began with tributes to the late Colin Keiser, a former master at the College and a Forty Club member who had passed away recently. These were led by Huw Richards, the Old Breconians Association Secretary and Peter Owens, the Match Manger, both of whom knew Colin well.

The Forty Club won the toss and batted in a 35 over match. An early partnership of 27 then became 35 for 3 wickets from 10 overs, but the innings was steadied by the Captain, Andi Price (71*) who was supported by Tim Harris (21) and Dewi Davies (11). The best bowler was D Clark, who returned figures of 7-1-32-2.

Defending a total of 166, the Club needed a good start, and they got one when the College’s first wicket fell with the score at 11. However, there followed two big stands with H Thomas (57) and O Newey (63) being the biggest scorers. Wickets did fall towards the end, but the target was reached by the College with 5.1 overs left. Colin Griffiths (7-0-26-2) and Rob Saunders (7-1-41-2) were the best bowlers for the Club.
