We fielded excellently today after dropping some easy catches earlier in the season. This time we took 6 great catches and James also pulled off a very nice run out with a direct hit. This was a fabulous ending to the season for us and our record win this year! Well played boys and good luck as you learn to play with the hard ball next year. Copthorne won by 102 runs. DJ
