A splendid sunny evening greeted our return to the bucolic Holt ground for what proved to be an exciting and successful 20/20 match!
Winning the toss and batting first, skipper Mike F (24) & Stu (37 not out) made a bright and positive start with boundaries aplenty.
The middle order continued the good work with 19 from The Professor & a powerful 28 from Paddy; whilst wickets fell this did allow Stu to come back & thus a score of 139-8 was posted.
In the field we were always on top with an outstandingly controlled bowling from Chris (on his own turf!) taking 3 for 21 in his 4 overs and a frugal Paddy also claiming 3 wickets for only 16 in his allocated 4 overs. Good catches were held, notably by an enthusiastic Tom L behind the stumps.
We were pleased to welcome Kev C (our new sponsor!) on his debut – his first ever over finished off the match – with an entertaining 12-run win for The Racqueteers.
Whilst the sausages and chips seemed somewhat rationed back at The Milbury’s pub, a good win was recorded & an early summer’s evening greatly enjoyed. Well played all!
