A terrific start to the second half of the season. The Saturday team convincing winners with BAC´S big guns misfiring with the bat following a big total by the local side.

Sunday´s game was a different story all together. The game went to the wire and it was great to see the sexagenarian fearless Phil Wright batting alongside teenager Nico Ball. The former hitting the winning runs with the crowd on the edge of their seats. Local clergyman Paul Strudwick particularly animated at the close of play.
