3rd XI Fall to First Defeat of the Season

Match report by Neil Megson

So the 3rds suffered their first defeat of the season against Cropredy 2nds by 27 runs.. We bowled reasonably well to bowl them out for 157,31 wides and 3 no balls was just rubbish again by us, its a massive problem we have and ultimately cost us yesterday… We should have been chasing about 120,which on a pitch doing all sorts all game was a huge challenge . Wickets for Rich Gostalow,Tom Anderson, 2 for Freddie Crook and Will Briggs.. The pick of our attack the brilliant Mikey Brown, 10 overs 3 maidens 3 for 20.. Great shift..

In reply we started well,Adnan Ahmed 20 and Lee Marland 39 got us to 60,but again a cluster of wickets tumbled against the excellent James Coleman as we subsided to 130 all out,… The extras situation and the 4/5 wickets tumbling in groups have happened in all 3 games,something i know we will improve on,we just have too… But after 3 games we are 2 points off the top,we are only about 60% capacity right now so all bodes well for a really decent season.. Bicester 2nds at home next week…. Onwards
