Full scorecard | averages | back to fixtures

Players crowd the way to win

A cast of thousands (well, around 30) gathered at Highate to round off the season with a knock-about game that proved trickier than expected.

The Old Fallopians fielded 14, and Chats Palace 15, setting the stage for what proved a long afternoon and evening with both teams batting out their 40 over allocations.

The winners: (L-R back row): Simon Tate, Mark Meadows, Kit Wright, Simon Hemelryk, Will Robertson, David Fitzpatrick, John Shaw, David Sultanti; (L-R kneeling): Tim Castle, Michael Osbourne, Mark Venables, Peter Frisby, Karen Hobson, Ed Paleit

Once again we were blessed with fine weather, and the Fallopians strode out to bat confidently wondering how generous to what appeared to be a scratch Chats side, featuring a number of youngsters.

Six balls from Alan Walsh later Fallopians opener Tim Castle and number three Kit Wright were back in the pavillion without troubling the scorer - in fact Castle was able to be the scorer after losing his wicket after only two deliveries.

Calm returned with the arrival at the crease of David Fitzpatrick, who blasted his way to 131 with 21 fours and two sixes to provide the backbone of the innings. 

A glance at the scorecard shows that without Fitz's contribution the Fallopians would have slumped to a very minor score, with Michael Osbourne the only other player to build momentum, not out on 37.

Ed Paleit, who scored 40 against Chats earlier in the season, was caught on the boundary for a duck with a shot that otherwise would have been a six.

It took the Flintoff-like build and pace of Jake Sharland to finally remove Fitzpatrick, with a thunderbolt of a delivery that snicked Fitz's bat and was taken by the keeper almost above his head.

 
 Luckless losers: (L-R back row:) Michael, Jake Sharland, Andrew Peel, Andy Pitts, Gary Horsman, Chris Muggeridge, Joe, Tim Stillwell; (L-R front row) Alan Walsh, Ellery Horsman, Stuart Mckean, Felix Murray, Alicia Tinre, Max Murray, unidentified dog

Set a target of 251, Chats opened with an injured Gary Horsman, playing with a runner after a nasty knock to his knee, and the dread Sharland.

Sharland proceeded to create mayhem, blasting the ball over and across the boundary until he was trapped leg before by a swift Castle delivery.

From then on the Chats batting -- all 15 of them -- slowly crumbled, but proved resistant on their last wicket stand and survived to bat out their overs and just scrape their score to the 200 mark, still 51 runs short.

There was good bowling all round from the Fallopians, with Shaw taking four wickets and Venables three, and Paleit taking three catches.
