Match Results against Failand & Portbury on 16th September 2012

On a cloudly after in mid September 2012, Failand & visited Grittleton Cricket Club.

No-one knows if the captain won the toss or not, but Grittleton batted first. The pitch looked okay, (for Grittleton Cricket Club), and the outfield had recently been cut (thanks to Webby).

Grittleton welcomed back opening batsman Rob Ward who suffered an injury early season which required a hospital visit! His right hand got a little damaged when attempting to catch the ball of his own bowling. Hospital (as he is know known was put into bat with Webby. They managed to put on around 70 runs for the loss of the first wicket just after the 10th over. In went Huw, who managed to spoon one back to the bowler for an easy catch, with Stanford doing little better (just scoring more runs... including a massive 6). In went Martyn Foard... who managed to hang around scoring some 85 runs, with 3 partners. The sixth wicket stand of Foard and Josey managed to put on some 131 runs, in 15 overs. Not bad for Josey who had failed to score more than 20 for GCC before! Josey also managed to hit his first ever 6 for Grittleton during this innings.

Grittleton CC scored 278 for 9 wickets off 40 overs.

In we went for tea... A fabulous spread provided by Williams and co...

Inchley lead from the front and opened the bowling with Williams... but Inchley failing to take any wickets... where as Williams took 1 wicket! With some superb bowling from Readman and Faulkner. With some supporting bowling from Foard, Saull, Josey and Standford. The support bowlers took 4 wickets and the main strike bowlers could only take 2!

Failand & Portbury CC scored 121 for 6 wickets off 40 overs.
