Honour intact in defensive play

Our most impressive batting  of the season agains a clinical attack from London Wanderers saw us reach 117 for the loss of just two wickets.

Austin Hymas was top scorer on 34 not out with a display of powerful and classicaly correct strokes. Opener Rafe Smallman was out for 13 to a well held skier (see pictures here...).

AK Southey gave his swashbuckling best, reaching 26 before being run out by a direct hit from Wanderers' fielder and student cricket coach Badg Allam -- who went on to score an unbeaten 41 in their reply.

Skipper Jonathan Stebbins temporarily lost the feeling in one of his fingers after it was rapped by a rearing delivery, but continued to reach 17 not out.

The Wanderers in their turn rushed through the score, reaching their target in 11.2 overs, not before Steve Ward took two wickets, one caught by Hymas and the other a cracking delivery that scattered the bails.

A defeat but by no means a disgrace, this was a powerful performance against a very able opposition.
