Match Results against Presidents Eleven on 12th July 2009

Grittleton CC had to field a team of 10 players, after one of their star players (Huw Williams) went down with flu like symptoms over the weekend...

Grittleton opened the batting, and the opening partnership of Mickey Stanford and Paul Matthews looked promising until Mickey miss timed his shot and and caught for only 5 runs!!! The only player to foolishly give his wicket away... (see image of Mickey Stanford, being sent back to the pavilion...

Grittleton CC scored 177 runs for 2 wickets off 25 overs.

The President's Eleven aka Neeld Arms Pub Team (well it was actually more like thirteen players), thought this was an achievable target in 25 overs with just over 7 runs an over needed... However the mighty bowling of Grittleton irregulars, succumbed the batting might of the Presidents Eleven in just a few overs..!

Presidents Eleven scored just 73 runs for 10 wickets off 25

Later that evening Mark Webb was then quoted as saying "The President's XI received a sound thrashing by 100+ runs in a 25 over game yesterday."
