Match Report

Crusaders -v- Oarolians at Biggin Hill 2 Sept 2.30
At last this annual fixture was fulfilled. With a mixed bag of no-hopers at Spud's call, this game was by no means the formality it seemed on paper. A reduced overs game produced a wealth of scoring from both sides with Crusaders batting first, amassing 217-6,with Spud completing a maiden century, ably backed by Graham and the impetuous Moody Paine. The Oarolians reply was in typically cavalier fashion with Dave Parker leading the charge, after surviving a difficult half chance off his first ball. At the half way stage a turn up looked on due largely to an awful spell of bowling from just about everyone the skip turned to. Eventually Mark' I get the strop when someone borrows my bat' Paine settled the issue with a fiery spell that knocked the heart out of the Os middle order. The innings closed at 184 all out, still 33 runs short.
