Match Report

Sussex Martlets 212 – 7  Henry Cope 3 for 38, Dominic Keats 3 for 54

Junior Martlets 117  Brad Gayler 42

Lost by 95 runs

The Junior Martlets faced a strong senior side for the annual encounter, that in recent years has marked the end of their season. A passing cold front made conditions unusual for a hot, dry August. The openers found it hard to score off Jamie Hutchings but the break- through was made by George Read with the score on 40. Dominic Keats is now searching for an assumed name with which to join the club in two years having trapped the Chairman LBW! Nick Seager and Michael Murray forced the pace until the rain brought a slightly early lunch. Henry Cope’s left arm wrist spin turned affairs when play resumed and the declaration came after 43 overs.

It looked a reachable target but the bowling was tight and only Brad Gayler, Greg Wisdom and Dom Keats looked comfortable. Sadly apart from the top scorer there was no sustained innings to bring the score close to what was required.

Despite the loss this was still a great occasion and a real privilege for the boys to play at Arundel. It also rounded off what has been a successful and enjoyable season.
