Sincere apologies to Egbert Moore and his VICTORY CALYPSO but do sing along!

Cricket lovely Cricket,

LOGS tried their best

But SKIPPERS won the test.

They gave the crowd plenty fun;

Sam Anders’ men were Number One!

Last Wednesday saw Captain Sam Anderson lead his stalwart team to play a 20: 20 match at Lewes against established adversaries LOGS.  We knew they would be a challenge as we had been bested by them big time in the Hockey season!  This was our first match as the others had been cancelled due to inclement weather.

LOGS won the toss and put us into bat.  Monty opened with young Toby.  Toby was looking good but was given out LBW.  Monty (13) was in excellent form and his promising innings was curtailed after a mix-up in the calling led to a run out. Captain Anderson scored a masterful 11 before being caught.  However, Tom Frost came to the rescue with a solid 34 Not Out – some classy shots!  Elliott gave the innings impetus with a rapid 17 which included a magnificent six!

We reached a total of 114 for 5 wickets which we felt was too low a score on a pitch with short boundaries.

Our bowlers soon tied down the LOGS batsmen.  Monty bowled a good line and length to claim 2 victims ( 4 overs 2 wickets for 5 runs).  Toby bowled well and stifled the runs too (4 overs 0 wickets for 10 runs).  Sam Anderson bowled a tad erratically but dismissed danger man Parker with a super quick delivery which flew off the shoulder of the bat straight into the able hands of Keeper Williams…this was an extraordinary catch!

LOGS gradually edged towards our score but Elliott’s bowling – if we discount his second over – bamboozled the oppo!  LOGS finished their innings on 106 for 8….close, but not close enough!

It had been an excellent match and the players, coaches, parents and umpires all enjoyed the experience!

Top Bat:  Tom Frost (and best run out!)

Top Bowler: Monty Hadow

Top Moment: Sam Williams’ catch

Well done!

Tim, Anthony and James
