So off we trudge for an evening game v Valley End. Always a strong unit and we knew we were in for a hard slog. Our hosts won the toss and allowed us first use of a dry looking track. Balcombe departed early to a smart catch and Funnell and U14 White rebuilt the innings with a fine partnership before Funnell retired on 50. Some late hitting from Mills and Ghandi got us to a below par looking 126 but we were faced with the best attack we had yet faced. In truth despite some excellent bowling and ground fielding the target never stretched our hosts who ran our comfortable winners by 8 wickets. Some good stuff from our team that we should be proud of as we look to improve game on game.
