Match Results for the Grittleton Cricket Club 8-a-Side on 15th May 2011

On a cloudy and windy afternoon in the middle of May, Grittleton Cricket Club held an internal 8-a-side match, as we did not have a fixture booked on this date. The club captain, did much (actually I think it was all) the organising for this event.

Team Lurch

The players were: David Hagelthorn, Graham Perkins, Rob Ward, Martyn Foard, Andrew Inchley, David Jones, Andrew Carrington and of course their team captain on the day Richard Saull.

Team Sultan of Multan

The players were: Bradley Foard, Mitchal Foard, Giles Tupper, Mickey Stanford, Andy Perham, Mark Runacres, Anthony Josey and of course their team captain on the day Huw Williams.

Please Note: That the club captain, Lurch, admitted to Huw (on the quiet) that on paper the Lurch team should win...

The format of the day would be as follows:

Playing 2 inning match of 15 overs a side. With batsman retiring at 25, but being able to go back in (if the team runs out of batsman) with bowlers bowling a maximum of 3 overs per innings.

Lurch won the toss and chose to field...
