Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Sawbo PANTHERS v Welwyn Garden City 5th XI on Sat 08 May 2010 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 33 runs

Match report Well given the weather conditions it was amazed we got a game of cricket in at all, although I do have to say it was like being at the North Pole. Having lost the toss Welwyn decided to bat first and soon lost a couple of early wickets to some good new ball bowling from Gostling and Bruton, before Hyatt (49)led a consolidation before some good lower order hitting from Giddens(33)and Wren(23)saw WGC claim max batting points and reach 193-8 off their 47 overs. Gostling the pick of the Sawbo bowlers with 3-23, ably supported by Bruton 2-65 and Boxall who took 1 wicket but a couple of great catches as well. Bailes rolled back the years coming on 5th change and taking 1-14 off 6 overs!!!
In reply Sawbo lost Penn in the second over before the captain led the reply with 41 backed up by O'Donovan(22)and Bailes(34). Howevver there was little support from the lower order with the exception of Spring(22) and Sawbo were all out for 160. Plenty of overs left and victory could have been ours if one of the top four had got a 70!! Oh well two defeats to start the season but some promising performances and promotion still a realistic aim.
