College won by 4 wickets
Played at Winchester College, SO23 9NA

Match Report

The Forty Club lost the toss and were once again asked to bat first and both openers struggled at the start with the indifferent bounce but put on 51 before David Steele was bowled for 20. Mike Ruffell and Andrew Stokes then put on 119 before Stokes was stumped for 34 with Ruffell going on to score a very entertaining 107. The Forty Club declared on 246 -6 leaving the college an hour and a half and 20 overs to chase our total. The College opening batsmen went on the attack from the start putting on 110 for the first wicket but a mid-innings collapse reduced the college to 148-6 with John Hawkins (4-55) leading the way. Unfortunately, this was to be our only success as Byers and Adams put on 99 and with the Forty Club tiring in the field, won the game with 7 balls to go. The XL skipper almost got the declaration right but this was a great game of cricket played with the right spirit throughout.
