Ardeley Walkern v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI on Sat 15 Jun 2019 at 1.30
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost by 250 runs

Match report A difficult day in the field, with one of their players hitting 24 6's on his way to 202 (the highest score I've ever seen) following on from a big hundred he hit the previous week. Understandably this was the bedrock on which their big score was based, but we dropped him on 60 which clearly proved very costly as it didn't look like there was that much more batting to come.

This will have been a huge learning experience for the 6 colts in the team, who kept their heads up and continued to work hard throughout their innings. They all kept concentrating and running hard in the field. Charlie Newman bowled very well upfront, taking an early wicket due to a good catch from Freddie Scott, and Rhys kept wicket very well. Also a special mention to Lee Ponting who playing his first game for Sawbo (and 1st game for 15 years) took a wicket in his first (and only over as it was the 39th) and was instrumental in 2 run outs.

Our reply got off to a terrible start as Ted was out first ball LBW to one that pitched on a length and rolled along the floor. There was a bit of a recovery with a 50 partnership between me and Phil, but we were both out within 3 overs leaving us 66 for 3 and still 34 runs from a batting point. But Mason batted superbly, ending with 31 not out and getting us over 100.

So although a big loss, we did pick up 4 points. It was also very nice that at the end of the game the opposition Captain said our colts were a credit to themselves and our club and we had some great future players coming through.
