Played at Bedales School, GU32 2DG

Match Report

The first Club match of the season was played in the pleasant surroundings of Bedales School on what has turned out to be the only dry day of the week. The uncovered wicket despite a lot of rain looked dry and bouncy and on winning the toss the XL Club captain did not hesitate in batting first with a side including 2 touring Australians and was rewarded with an opening stand of 70 for the first wicket. There then followed a stand of 105 between Andy King (42) and Stuart Spalding (55 no) for the 3rd Wicket and with tea approaching the XL Club declared on 201-3. After an excellent tea served in the marquee the XL Club took to the field hoping not to do too much running around in the heat but with the Stoner captain, Jones hitting a rapid 28 it brought to the crease Tom Blackburn returning home from Durham University and together with Green (50) put on 86 before our next and last success. Blackburn then went on to compile an excellent 100 hitting the ball to most parts of the ground with Stoner winning the match by 8 wickets. A good day for Batsman with over 400 runs being scored and despite 15 bowlers being used in the match only 5 wickets were taken (all caught) and Stoner bowled all 11 players which might be some kind of record in a XL Club match.
