Bayford Nondescripts v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 12 Aug 2012 at 2.00
Saracens Cricket Club Lost By 34 Runs

Match report Nice day at Bayford which as a venue ticks all of the Saracens requirements, nice place, always sunny, good track, great teas and a bar, perfect place for a game of cricket then.
Fanny negotiated the toss well and Bayford agreed to a 40 over match, no limits on bowlers and they would kindly bat first. Same as last year young Sam Davis from Hoddesdon 1’s was playing…

Lawrence Mayet made his debut and turned out to be an excellent left arm quick and in partnership with a crippled Fanny picked up the first 3 wickets with only 33 on the board. Davis was getting into his stride and skied a Bun top spinner when on only 48…the crowd held its breath…and Helmet dropped the catch (W award sorted)…Davis went on to score 126 and Bayford posted a slightly below par 226 for 5.

Chasing 200+ is not our speciality and despite a powerful 48 from Fanny and a much more controlled elegant 47 from Tricky neither opener pushed on. At 120 for 2 off 25 overs it looked like the match could go either way. Damo, Lawrence, Dinghy and Vinnie tried to push us on to victory but with no luck. Shane, Fud, Helmet and Baloo had some fun at the death smashing the bowling to all parts. We posted a respectable 192 for 9.

W Award = James ‘Helmet’ Adams (Dropped Davis on 48)
