Frogmore v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 03 Aug 2014 at 2.00pm
Saracens Cricket Club Won by 4 Wickets

Match report After Flamstead withdrew during the week, we travelled to Frogmore on a very sunny afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Frogmore had its own pub, we arrived to find that Matt, Jim, Tony and Rich Gough were already in it and checking out the refreshments.

After winning the toss, we had a bowl on what looked a pretty flat and slow wicket that would turn a bit later on. Woody and Rich Gough opened up, Woody bowled 5 tight overs before limping out with a groin injury. Rich Gough was less tight from his 5 overs before being replaced by Matt, who together with Tricky, Dinghy and Bun, bowled the remaining 30 overs. We kept it tight all the way through, apart from the odd couple of moments from Tricky (watch the ball) and Mini-man (watch the spin), restricting Frogmore to 168-7 from their 40 overs. Matt (1-17) & Tricky (1-27) bowled very well and Bun picked up 4-48 as the chase for quick runs was on.

After a pretty good tea, Matt and Tricky set about chasing down our target and we got off to a solid start before Tricky fell with the score on 52. Jim, Richard Gough and Matt then all departed in quick succession leaving us on 77-4.

Slogger joined Dinghy and together they moved the score past 100 before Dinghy perished to the left arm quick. Mini-man joined Slogger and they added another 16 before Mini-man was out. Woody was next in and we required 47 to win from 6 overs. That then became 30 off 4. 15 runs then came from the 38th over and 9 from 39th meaning we needed 6 to win off the last over, which Woody dually obliged with a six over mid wicket to see us home by 4 wickets with 4 balls to spare.

A great win and a good drink in the bar afterwards, Vinnie was joyfully told by everyone via text that we had now won 5 in a row and 6 out of our last 7.

W-Award: Tricky (Good Bowling, Ok Batting, Rubbish Fielding (ball went through his legs and over his shoulder) We sent him to talk to Mini-man about the spin.
