Coopersale CC 1st XI v Old Sectonian on Sun 14 Jul 2013 at 2.00
Coopersale CC Won By 96 runs

Match report Another hot,sultry day beckoned at Brickfield Road. Our opponents this week were Old Sectonians and a tough match was predicted. I won the toss and elected to bat first.Harry and Steve R opened and we lost Harry cheaply,LBW with the score on 21. Enter Hank. He survived being dropped early on a and then started smashing the ball to all parts! Well supported by Steve, Hank scored 91 before being caught. We were now 166 for 2. Mark R joined Steve with half an hour of batting left. Steve decided that he would take over from where Hank left off and by the time the innings had closed,Steve had raced to 98 not out and Mark finished not out on 24 and a total of 249 to defend. Superb effort from our batsmen and it was a pleasure to watch some of the shots played.

After a good tea prepared by Becky we took to the field hopeful. I opened the bowling with myself and Melvin and we soon had the oppo in trouble.i had their opener caught with the second ball and Melvin was causing all sorts of trouble from his end. After 8 overs the oppo were 30 for 5! Then 62 for 6.their number was proving to be a pain and we were having trouble getting him out. Other batsmen weren't so lucky.with sound bowling efforts from Hank ( bowling spin again),Mark H ,Harry and Peter,the oppo were soon 127 for 8. There then followed a period of frustration for us as we tried everything to get the last 2 wickets. Having rested Melvin,I brought him back and although we were taken into the last over with one wicket to get. Melvin, with the help of a good catch by Malcolm, got the last man with just 4 balls remaining. Tight but a well deserved win in the end. Great effort by everyone. That now makes it 5 in a row!!

On another note. I would just like to point out what great sportsmanship Gus showed in the last over of the game. He was due to umpire the final over but out of fairness offered the oppo the chance to do so. Which they did.
