Sadly Derek Candy and his side of senior cricketers – with just one exception – lost to a much younger and fitter MCC side by 137 runs at Fareham CC. MCC batted first and declared at 247 for 5, with one batsman making a century. Our 84 year old bowler Les Loader took 2 wickets, David Steele took two and Andrew Robertson took 1. With the bat, only Eral Anderson had any success, scoring 50 before he was caught, and only 4 other batsmen made it to double figures. XL was all out in 41.1 overs for 110.
