    Ewleme 87 all out from 33.2 overs – Sydenham 89 for 5 from 32.4 overs

    Since our nail bitting victory (match report below) against Old Berkely the gentlemen members of the cricket club obviously wished to be rembered for that last performance, and duely had a couple of weeks off to bask in the glory of that last ball victory – oh so sweet the taste!
    But we had to get back onto the pitch versus Ewelme to see if any of that magic was still present……and bugger me it was! In a low scoring match on a dodgy pitch where accurate bowling gave much reward to the bowler, James Ward and the ever steady Nigel Brewster chased down a score of just 87 with 2 overs to spare. There were some significant wobbles on the way with four cheap wickets falling early on, Reynolds, Bradley and Barker (the hairy junior version) the most significant losses (losers?)
    Earlier in the day our bowlers had reduced Ewelme to a low score with some accurate bolwing from all involved. Some overconfidence at tea nearly jumped up to bite back when wickets were tumbling but we just struggled past the winning post.
    Of particular note was the quality of match tea – An overwhealming amount of quality sweets, far outnumbering the savouries had the Sydenham batsmen in some discompfort prior to taking their guards – a fine ploy from the home team!
