Match Report

The Forty Club won a tight gameby 23 runs with just three balls remaining of the final over. XL’s 178 for 4 was par on a slow low pitch; several times the school looked as if it would win, but excellent bowling from old boy Melvyn Gale ((6-0-22-3) followed by Mark Winton (4.3-2-12-5) saw a mid and later order collapse by the school.
