Match Report

On a day when rain was never far away S&Sx batted first, putting on 150-1 at the halfway stage for the loss of Nigel Angus (41) in the 18th over. An aggressive 81 from Steve Naylor in just 59 balls complimented Dave Allaway’s 90 off 65 deliveries before the final flourish came from Bjorn Mordt and Richard Mansfield taking the score to 335. This was a challenging total, however, EM made a good response with Paul Sheppard (76) and Jason Gorman (77) putting on 127 for the 1st wicket before the latter was run out. The remaining batsmen kept getting quite close to the run rate required but with a regular fall of wickets to Steve Naylor (4-33) and Richard Mansfield (3-54) the cause was long gone when the last wicket fell with one ball remaining, leaving S&Sx winners by 72 runs.
