Jack Netts's opening overs were a mixed bag, George McConnell's were accurate. At 5 Hall was bowled by Netts. At 9, Zurawlew was caught at cover by Patrick off Jack. At 23 Cox (4), was bowled by George. David Cragg offered control. A Watson & Amin took the score to 47 before Cragg persuaded Amin (15) to hit high to the boundary where Charlie took a good catch, 47-4.

A partnership of 40 between opener Andy Watson & Longstaff threatened but at 87, Longstaff (20) was caught by Patrick at cover off Varun Gudipati's medium pace. The introduction of Oliver Clark's off spin did for Watson (35) who chipped a c&b back to the bowler at 97.

Another partnership built but at 129 Collins(14) was well caught by George at mid wicket off David Cragg. At 143, Frazer (27) skied Mo to mid wicket where Charlie took another neat catch, 8 down.

A convincing 57 run victory, partnerships built when batting, wickets taken at the right time when bowling, fielding smartly. All good !
