Malta XI v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 15 Oct 2016 at 1.00pm
Saracens Cricket Club Won by 8 wkts

Match report We arrived at the lovely Marsa Sports Club for our only game of tour with everyone fit and well for a change .
Dingy once again forgot the pennant (w award sorted) and after all the photos (Tony B despite standing on tiptoe was still the shortest) Ben negotiated the toss and we were in the field.
Opening up was Hitch(supported by adopted mum Clare) and tricky and after 3 overs Malta were six for two backed by good fielding with two run outs . Bun and Jenks came on first change and although the opener took a liking to Jenks he quickly departed when Bun had him caught in the deep.
Tony B , Chris and Hana all bowled well with Hana picking up her first ever wicket for the club having Hart bowled with huge cheers from the sarries barmy army.
After 20overs we had kept Malta to 101-7 off 20 with all the bowlers - Hitch (2-2),Tricky (0-6),Bun (1-16),Jenks (0-20),Tony B (1-15), Chris (0-22)and Hana (1-16)backed up by good fielding with Jenks ,Ben and Woody taking good catches

A quick turnaround and the two contenders for the batting trophy - Woody and Jenks opened and soon had the Malta bowlers toiling in the heat as they added 100 off 10 overs with Woody hitting his 8th fifty in 11 innings . Both departed to stumpings, Woody for 57 and Jenks for 32 as they tried to finish in style, which left Vinny (1 no) and Dingy (1no) to score the remaining two runs without any further loss which was lucky as no one was padded up .
A good victory against weak opposition due to the main side having a game in the afternoon .
Thank You to all the supporters who braved the hot weather to come and support us .
Next came the Sarries dash with the following result
1) Tricky, 2) ben , 3)woody ,4) hitch , 5) captain Vance, 6) Tony B, 7) Hana , 8) Jenks 9)Chris, 10) Dingy 11) Bun
A well deserved beer was followed by an afternoon at the pool and more beers
Cricket on tour and for the season had ended.
a good season with 12 wins ,7 losses and 1 draw with 3 cancelled

Thanks to all the supporters who come every week to cheer us on and also too Tricky for captaining and making sure we have 11 each week.
See you next year and IBIZA
