Saracens Cricket Club Lost by 4 runs

Match report This is the worst match report to write...
After the last 2 years of beating Bray a weaker team managed to steal a marginal victory again Saracens.
Fanny won the toss, bowled and mainly thanks to Bun (5-33) and Dinghy (2-10) at the death managed to keep Bray to 145 all out.
Saracens chase started well with Fanny and Tricky putting on 43 inside the first ten overs and despite Squibby and Dinghy hitting well it fell to Vinnie Archer to win the game with 8 required off the last 5 balls...

W Award = Vinnie Archer (Scored 11 not out in 12 overs)


Squashi, as he usually does with his first innings of the season anchored the innings with 58 in 26 overs. He was supported by Nick Clements(27) in a second wicket stand of 46. At 86 for 2 in 22 overs a score of 160 should have been comfortable. The usual Bray Sunday collapse ensued and Bray had to settle for a paltry 145 !.

As always early wickets were crucial although they didn't come the opening bowlers, aided by weak batting, were able to keep the scoring in check. Armstrong captured two wickets in successive overs to eventually make inroads. Tight 8 over spells from Yusuf and Tif meant Armstrong was able to unleash the spin twins Butler and Mace the Ace at the end. Butler was his usual costly self but did get two wickets. Mason, once he found his range, proved difficult to get away and victory eventually resulted in this low quality contest.
