Horsley and Send v Brockham Green 2nd Xl on Sat 01 Sep 2012 at 13.00
Brockham Green Won by 6 wickets
On an unusually dry and overcast day, Horsley won the toss and surprisingly put decided to bat. For our heroes the equation was simple - a win with 36 points or more and the league title was theirs! Horsley started steadily and progressed to 80-2 despite some great swing bowling from Andy Ellis and Mike Silence. Their rate gradually slowed as wickets began to fall with Phil taking two more wickets. Then the game turned once more with the spin twins of James Haddow and Marc Steele reducing the run rate further. James spun the ball sharply and big Marc bowled superbly giving hardly any runs away and taking 4 wickets (4 for 5!)Horsley were finally bowled out in the 42nd over with Brockham earning 4 bowling points.
Brockham's response started well with Tim Kent being his usual fluent self. However things changed when Tim suddenly injured his calf going for a quick single. He decided to hit out and was caught which led to a slowdown in the runrate. The Horsley bowlers bowled straight and steadily and the game was back in the balance. However, Brockham did not panic and battled their way through. Owen, Angus and Geoff repelled the Horsley comeback and James Haddow once again saw our heroes home with a fine unbeaten 38. Our chairman was also there at the end to help us over the line.
Another great win for the 2's who secured the points needed to not only secure promotion but also to take the div 4 title with a game to spare! After a fabulous 9th straight win, the lads made their way back to the Rec where champagne flowed!
Div 3 here we come - and this time we mean business!
