UCS Old Boys CC v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 07 May 2017 at 1.30pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost By 5 wickets

Match report So it is time to dust off the pads and wash the whites. The new season is here. A game against UCS old boys at met police ground in Bushey. We were on a pitch 3 miles from the pavilion and changed by the pitch. Plenty on view for our marvellous supporters.
In typical Saracens style, we only had 10 men and 3 others were running late. Better have a bat then! What a pitch. More divots than a ploughed field. Get your helmet on. Tricky got an impossible shooter which almost went under the stumps just after one nearly took Woody's head off. With 2 umpires and a scorer everyone get your pads on. Hitch and Woody steadied the ship and added 25 before Woody was bowled. In came pinch hitter Dinghy who couldn't move due to pneumonia. Things starting to look up. Hitch playing lovely shots and Dinghy smashing 6 fours we started to build a good score. Hitch scored a superb 50 and Stefan and Jenks played nicely and Bun smashed a four and his bat broke in the last over. 163 seemed a good score on that wicket.
Of course the sun comes out and the pitch flattens. Added to several dropped catches and Saracens trying to lose the game. 80 -0 in no time. On comes Tim Garrett to take 2 quick wickets and we are back in the game. A stumbling Dinghy added 2 more and Woody chipped in. But not enough and we lost by 5 wickets. Not a bad warm up game under the circumstances. Most hotly contested decision the W award. With added spice due to the new fantasy league competition.
After a tied vote, Woody lost the casting vote for being slightly unhappy about being bowled
