Match Report

The game was played on the hottest day of the year and XL were desperate to win the toss and bat on a lovely wicket.  Having failed to do so regular drinks breaks kept the XL going for 53 overs of more than respectable bowling with stalwart efforts from Jonathan Barrett and Will Moore in particular. Nigel Pestifield also produced some great glovework despite the heat.  Alderson and Reeds skipper Tilley both made good half centuries and their 5th wicket stand of 83 set up their innings. Several of the Reeds boys made good starts without going on as the XL bowling on the whole remained tight.  Having started steadily and progressed to 136 for 5 thanks largely to Andy Drummond’s stylish 54 the XL tail drooped in the heat.  Despite a 35 ball 41 from Guy Locke with victory in sight we collapsed to 166 all out.  A good game against some talented young cricketers in a lovely location with a great lunch and some much needed and enjoyable post-match re-hydration.

Thanks to Grant and his grounds team, Malcolm Dunn and Keith Medlicott for hosting and especially Norman Jones and John Lewis for their support.
