Wed 5th July 2017 at 11.30
School won by 5 wickets
Played at Clayesmore School, Iwerne Minster, Blandford, DT11 8LL

Match Report

On a lovely summer’s day, the Forty Club lost the toss and were asked to bat first which was not a disappointment for the older players as the temperature was heating up already. The late withdraw of 2 XL players the day before left no hope of finding replacements but the school were kind enough to lend us a player.  The openers got off to a steady start putting on 23 for the first wicket with useful contributions from  S. Dean 28, A. King 25 and an excellent 50 from Matt Porter out of a final XL Club score of 182 – 9. The school reply started slowly after the loss of an early wicket to John Hawkins and progressed well to the start of the final 20 over’s at 87 for 4 with John Hawkins taking 3 for 48. With the introduction of Mark Tipping who almost immediately went into 20/20 mode the Clayesmore batsmen soon accumulated runs putting on 71 for the next wicket with Tipping eventually finishing on 67* in a final total of 184-5. A good competitive match against some good school cricketers in a nice location.
