The less said about this fixture the better as far as the Vandals were concerned.
Walton turned up with a very strong side, made up with many A team players and overwhelmed our youngsters. Batting first we lost wickets at a regular pace, 3 going in the second over alone. Only Ryan Binnie - armed with his newly gripped bat - showed some resilience with a well made 14. Unfortunately 12 wickets fell during the innings leaving us a little famished at the turn on a score of 248.
Waltons batters then feasted on the buffet bowling made available to them. Too many short and wayward deliveries were handsomely punished by some excellent - and hard hitting - batting which left our lads in awe. The ball found the boundary far too frequently for Vandals liking making this a one-sided contest. Ryan Bradley stood out with the ball taking two wickets and maintaining a good line and length whilst Edward Drew, on debut, took the only other wicket to fall. Walton finished on 370 and a winning margin of 122 runs.
Vandals must move on and forget about this one.
