Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 2nd XI v Cockfosters 2nd XI on Sat 07 Aug 2010 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won by 3 wickets

Match report Despite a bit of a wobble at the end, another great win that moved us back up the table as other results were affected by the weather.

With a bit of swing available, we bowled really well as a team. I finally chipped in with a few wickets, taking the first 4 quickly leaving them 15 for 4 from which they never recovered. Jamo bowled beautifully again returning fantastic figures of 3 for 15 off 15, god knows why he got taken off seeing as he had just bowled 5 maidens on the bounce, two of which were wicket maidens. Lars also chipped in with a couple. We did have a big scare though when they were 73 for 9 and it started to rain. We had a very nervous hour watching the weather, knowing that the 1's had already been rained off, but thankfully it finally stopped and then the sun even came out. We then had a one ball session as their umpire reluctantly gave their last man out LBW off the first ball of the restart.

With one eye on the weather we started positively, but when first Runcie and then Deano got out we slowed down as both Steady and Rhys struggled to get going against some very disciplined bowling. We then had a bit of a wobble when they and T man got out, but Birchy stood up and saw us home despite having to watch both me and Chuckly getting out with just 3 needed.

We are now 5th again and really need to win next week to give us a chance of promotion.
