Letchworth CC v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 02 Sep 2012 at 2.00
Saracens Cricket Club Lost By 13 Runs

Match report Nice day at Letchworth with some old Saracens watching on the side lines (Simon & Kirsten from NZ and Jenks over from Aus) plus a welcome return to the team for Ben ‘Slogger’ Wallis.

Fanny negotiated the toss and a strong looking Letchworth line up batted first. Tricky & Dinghy bowled well without any real luck and the Letchworth number 3 had quite a few lives (Flipper dropped him on about 40) before Bun finally cleaned him up. At 103 off 20 a big score looked likely but with a combination of tight bowling, solid fielding and a couple of excellent catches (Fud & Slogger) we bowled them out for a gettable 209. The fielding was especially great given we had only 10 men for most of the game due to a nasty Flipper injury.

The chase started brightly with Fanny smashing a few and Slogger building a controlled innings. Fanny eventually played on before he got 50 AGAIN, Tricky & Vinnie both got interesting LBW decisions and at 104 for 3 off 25 overs the game was evenly set.

Letchworth skipper made sure Slogger couldn’t find the boundary (9 riders!) and despite a heroic effort from Squibby and lastly Rich we ended up needing 21 of the last over to win the game. We fell 13 runs short, good day and we outlasted all of the opposition in the bar!

W Award = Tony ‘Flipper’ Bunyan (got injured, dropped catch)
