Excellent afternoons cricket at the Saffrons. R&W won the toss and posted 276-6 off 40 overs, highlights 3 wickets for Julian Hunt and a first Martlet wicket for the MM, as well as being deposited in the football ground. Excellent brakes also applied by Trubby either side of drinks,as well as a nonchalant one handed catch on the boundary, before stepping over for a 6. At one point we were staring down the barrel.

In reply Jules for played superbly for 112 opening. Was ably supported by a cameo of 26 from our chairman, a brief knock from John Goodacre, 35 from Mike Loveday, 50* from Freano and a belligerent 26 off 10 balls from Trubby (aka the Beast), finishing with a 6 to win the game with 4 balls to spare, total 281-6.

Speeches and bonhomie concluded the day as the Dutch headed off to the nightlife of Eastbourne and the Martlets retired home. Next up the Aussies on Friday….
