A great game at Glendelvine today. Won by the home side by 4 wickets. Special mention should also be made of the cricket teas, definitely the best of the season. A fine day among old and new friends.

The Forty Club won the toss and decided to bat first. The wicket was hard but damp and runs were hard to come by. The best spell for the District was a 64 run partnership for the fourth wicket between Ian Chambers (40) and Pete Moses (33no). 140 was probably about 10/20 runs below par unless we bowled and fielded well. Unfortunately that was not the case too many four balls and several dropped catches allowed Glendelvine to reach 131-2. There then was a golden spell when Graeme DeBrincat (3-17) took 3 wickets for no runs in a three over spell. However the fairy tale ended as two of Glendelvine’s senior players edged the side home.
XL Club 140 – 7 (I.Chambers 40, P.Moses 33no, S.Tait 3-13)
Glendelvine 141 – 6 (B.Stephens 55, R.Tait 31, G.DeBrincat 3-17)
