The school were invited to bat first and scored 189 for 8. Captain Sam Barrett batted beautifully for 75 and was very strong on the leg side. The wily bowlers from the club managed to contain the score to 189 with Harrison and Adrian bowling very well together with Andy Bradley a new member this year.
Forty Club were indebted to Tristan Coetzee who scored a magnificent 106 not out to win the game in the 39th over. Danny Welbourne made 34. The school did drop 4 catches which did cost them the game.
An excellent game played in a very sporting manner and the school should be congratulated. They are the current national champions but have lost the majority of last year’s team.
