Match Report

Two on the trot
Even the absence of the vacating skip, could do little to dampen our renewed team morale and it was Buchurstís turn to come under the Crusader hammer. Having lost earlier in the season a determined approach enabled us to total a solid 146-7, with Geoff May notching a maiden club fifty. Again he was the only bat to really get going, with moderate contributions from Schultz, Timms, Paine and Henderson acting as foil. As per last week it was a devastating opening burst from Henderson and Moyse that set up victory. Within ten overs Buckhurst were reduced to 20 for 6 and the game was virtually clinched. Eventually Andy Paul tidied up the tail and ensured an early session in The Elephant. With the exception of May and Henderson, all were happy, including the oppo, who were spared the humiliation of a sub 30 total if Daz and Nigel had continued bowling.
