2s Finish Season In Style

Rye 2s 180 all out lost to Seaford 2s 255-8

Seaford's season drew to a close with a stylish win at Rye. On a boiling summers day Seaford won the toss and elected to bat. The early loss of Jamie Cogdell for 8 bought in Ben Brown, who together with Jonty Reynolds, got Seaford to 100 in the 20th over. A collection of powerful drives and slog sweeps meant the ball was going to all parts of the ground for an hour. Jonty Reynolds was then stumped for a boundary packed 40. In came Mitch Ellingham who continued to keep the scoreboard ticking over freely in a partnership of 76. Ben Brown finally succumbed LBW for 78, a fine innings making him the 2nds highest run scorer for the season. Well done BB. When Mitch Ellingham went for a sweetly timed 61 Seaford did lose their way a bit in the last ten overs, only a quick fire 23 from Zak Hearsey to speak of from then on.

Overall with the season we have had, more than happy with the total of 255 from 45 overs.

Rye set out in pursuit of this large total, reaching 50 for the loss of only 1 wicket in the 12th over, the experienced JP Smith snaring him. Three quick wickets, including two for Ben Harvey, then left Rye 76 for 4. This bought together Fielding (43) and Clifton (33) who made great progress chasing down Seaford's total. A double change of bowling bought on Ellingham and Wootten who grabbed one a piece on consecutive balls to remove these two with the score on 152. This put the victory firmly in Seaford's grasp. Some inspired bowling changes bought to a close Rye's run chase and the victory was Seaford's.

A total of nine bowlers used on the day, only one didn't get a wicket, including Jonty Reynolds getting the last wicket with his only ball of the season. Special mention for Zak Hearsey whose catch in the gully, off the bowling of Ben Brown, was described as a " worldy " plus zero byes on the day, well kept Owen Edmunds. A great team effort!

Third win on the trot for Seaford was a great way to finish the season, shame we didn't find that form earlier in the season. Well done all the players this season, a season of many changes and many players have performed. We all look forward to next season in positive frame of mind, fingers crossed other results go in Seaford's favour and we climb off bottom spot at last.
