Hitchin 4th XI v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Sawbo PANTHERS on Sat 14 May 2011 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won 6 wickets

Match report Well a great start to the season for the 5th's with another fine win. Having won the toss Lee put the oppo into bat again. The day then went downhioll slightly with Scott Noonan realising he had forgotten his white trousers and so played the game in a pair of grey!! tracksuit bottoms, very village. This obviously played on his mind because his first coupld of overs were indeed village. With Will Boxall bowling well from the other end (2-47 off 13) Scott soon sorted his line and length out and the runs dried up. Joe Rickett bowled a good 6 over spell (0-15) and Matt Billings came on half way through the innings to start a mammoth 14 over spell (2-54). Again another one who started off poorly but came back strongly as his spell continued and indeed only went for 21 runs off his last 6 overs at the end of the innings. So after 47 overs Hitchin had 166-6 which on a fast outfield was well within the grasp.
After Gus Marsh went for a duck Freeman (63) and Fisher (87) put on 138 for the second wicket. Unfortunately both went within sight of the finish line and despite a few flutters Matt Gostling with 10 not out saw us home. So 60 points from two games and top of the league. Things can't get much better than that.
