Wednesday the 8th of May saw the 2nd XI square up against Brambletye. We lost the toss and were sent in to bowl first.
The innings started well with a few runs here and there, but generally the boys bowled well. After the first wicket taken by
Sam Mayhew, their 3rd batsman started making runs quickly, which immediately put us on the back foot. Unfortunately, he went on to make 69. Brambletye ended their innings on 146.
After tea we went in to bat and quickly lost a wicket first up. James Workman was however our saviour of the day making a very impressive 59. A great example set to the team, WELL DONE JAMES!!! Unfortunately James’s efforts were not enough to get us to the required total, falling 67 runs short.
This was a big improvement to last weeks performance which is fantastic. Lots of work still needs to be done on our batting but that will come in time. DH
