Match Results against Langford on 18 May 2014

Match Day Captain: Anthony Josey

On a Sunny day in middle of May Grittleton travelled to Langford, with a debue captain Anthony Josey taking charge of Grittleton. Unlike most of other Club Captain's Captain AJ won the toss and elected to Bat.

In the searing heat of May with temperatures reaching a massive 25 degrees C in the shade, grittleton arrived at the the crease. Langford's opening bowlers managed to swing the ball causing the batsman to struggle. However Grittleton managed to keep the score board ticking over, after losing opener Leyton Lark early. Up stepped Martyn who scored 72, with good supporting roles from Rob Ward and Huw Williams who both scored 35.

Grittleton CC scored 208 for 5 wickets off 40 overs.

Langford provided a superb tea and it was commented by a number of GCC players that perhaps this years Best Tea Award should be presented to the opposition.

Grittleton took to the field and Langford came out to bat. Despite some good bowling the runs kept flowing and the score kept ticking over and the wickets slowly fell. Congratulations to RS for dropping a easy catch, and to RW for managing to keep hold of one despite bloodying his figures as he rolled around on the grass taking the catch. Causing more damage to his hand again!

Langford CC scored 148 all out off 33.1 overs.
