Brook v President's XI

Two in a row for the all the President's men!

A 1 pm start marked a departure from tradition but the President's XI secured a hard-fought victory to make it otherwise business-as-usual.

With the square extremely dry given a combination of the hot weather and a water supply problem which had made watering more difficult during the week, cracks had appeared and the decision taken to water after the Saturday home match. Even with the sun beating down and the afternoon start, the pitch was not easy to bat on for the President's XI openers, Paul Challinor and Ollie Eccles, who batted with great discipline and steadfast resolve to lay the foundation of a winning score notwithstanding some playful banter from both their own team and the opposition suggesting that the batting could be more exciting!

A maiden half-century for Pat Clarke, who thoroughly enjoyed his day at the office, saw the President's XI to a competitive score but certainly attainable.

After another excellent tea thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by all, the Club side made steady progress but a couple too many lost wickets which meant that, at the beginning of the last 20 overs, the lower order had much still to do after a wonderful off-cutter by Richie removed Ed Bishop who had batted beautifully for the second half-century of the match.

It came down to the last pair which, thankfully for the Club side, included skipper Tom Williams who very nearly guided his side to victory only to fall to a skied catch just a few runs short.

A wonderful day with the players and supporters enjoying the sun, the cricket and the hospitality. The Chairman and the President addressed the gathered throng after the match. There were notable contributions on the field too from all the younger players who enjoyed the opportunity to shine and give us all great confidence in the future of the Club!
