The captains tossed and our lost... (again) and we were placed into the field. Out game the Grittleton Team to field (still waiting for Mickey to arrive), he had been working miles away and would arrive shortly. With el captiano showing us how not to bowl off the first few deliveries, they had already scored 2 boundaries.

After a superb tea (provided by Mr & Mrs Readman), Grittleton took up the run chase.

The youthful Langford side opened the bowling and took a quick wicket of Leyton, followed by Grittleton's top scorer on the day Mickey 46, with some flashing drives and a huge six to cow corner! Langford continued to take regular wickets and eventually reduced the run such that GCC needed a couple of massive overs to win! Sadly despite a glorious cover drive by Josey... GCC did not managed to win. Grittleton CC scored 151 all out off 39.1 overs.
