Potton Town v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 17 Jul 2010 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won by 5 wickets

Match report Another good allround performance and 30 points in the bag. We had a good start with one of the openers being run out without facing a ball and Jamo was bowling beautifully one end, giving them nothing and picking up 2 wickets. Their number 4 batted well for his 50, playing positively, but once Billy had him bowled we just bowled consistently well at both ends and kept picking up wickets. Their tail showed their inexperience by trying to play big shots when they should have batted time and tried to get them up to 160 or 170. In the end we had them all out for 148 in the 44th over, with 9, 10 and 11 all out caught trying to hit boundaries.

In reply they opened with the old ball and it proved difficult to score quickly. Brends went early but Deano and Steady built a good partnership which broke the back of the target. We had a bit of a wobble with about 40 to go when Steady and Dave got out in quick succssion, but Birchy and T Man confidently went about getting us home, with T Man in particular looking to get it over with including one of the most comical pull shots you'll ever see off a ball that was about a foot above his head when he hit it. Birchy got out without about 10 needed, but Rhys came in and took the glory by hitting the winning runs.

Still 8th but it is really tight now with only 30 points between us and 1st. It doesn't look like anybody above us is going to give it away so we just have to keep on winning, with a big match next week against Hertford who are 3rd.
