Rossall School v NW

Wed 10th May 2017 at 14.00
XL won by 100 runs
Played at Rossall School, FY7 8JW

Match Report

XL won the toss and elected to bat upon our return to Rossall after several years’  absence. Although the XL lost a couple of early wickets, a partnership between Greg Boyes and Brett Ernst steadied the ship and useful contributions from  Josh Fallows and Clive Fortune enabled the Club to amass 234 before their innings concluded.

The School in reply never got to grips with the early XL bowling and although Brad Gosling batted excellently for his 64, the school were never able to pose a threat to the Clubs total, who eventually ran out winners by 100 runs.

An excellent days cricket was cemented by glorious weather and this was completed by the Schools hospitality on looking after us after several years absence.

We look forward to our return next year, and wish their master Ollie Rogers all the best when he takes up his new post as head of PE on the other (wrong) side of the Pennies in the Autumn.
