East Horsley v Brockham Green 2nd Xl on Sat 14 Aug 2010 at 1.30
Brockham Green Won by 7 wkts

Match report "Perchance to dream and in that dreaming weep"‎

Dare the 2nd XI dream? Another win and 2nd place would be in our hands - onwards boys and care ‎‎- don't drop the ball.‎

It was all out Trench Warfare as both teams needed the win to help their cause to the top. The ‎weather was determined to play a factor as games across the league were being abandoned.‎

When I say both teams dug in - I wasn't mixing any metaphors - the ground was soggy, boggy and ‎other things ending in 'oggy'. The square very quickly turned into a series of muddy trenches; both ‎behind and in front of the stumps. The bowlers had to be extra careful especially Darren who did a ‎very good casting for 'Come Dancing on Ice'.‎
However, as it unfolded - good consistent bowling all round put East Horsley to the sword for 53 all ‎out.‎

Then rain then came down but gave up and went away somewhat embarrassed after it became ‎clear that it was being ignored.‎

And so it was all up to some great 'do or die' batting from Jeff who helped to seal Horsley’s fate.‎
The Brockham army marches on....‎
