Campden Vs Winchcombe
May 14th, 2017
Yesterday we were hosts to Winchcombe First XI. With Winchcombe winning the toss, they put us into bat. After a slow start, and a quick fall of wickets things weren’t looking good for us at 65-5 off 21. The tail rallied well to take us to a total of 208 off 45, with G Nicholls contributing an impressive 49.
Winchcombe started their innings almost exactly the same as us, finding themselves at 66-7 off 23. Winchcombe just fell short of our total, despite a strong 82 runs from Phil Hillyard. Well done to both J Linder and J Groves both taking 4 wickets, and to S Nicholls and S Groves taking 1 each.
Overall a great game, competitive but played in the right spirit.
A big thank you to Will Arkell at Wreal Sports for supplying us with our new 150th Anniversary shirts.
Next week we are hosts to Kennilworth Wardens.
