The 4th XI started the season welcoming three players who had not played for some time. J. Spooner, S Townsend and Q Dippenaar. Together with a mix of five Colts in the squad they took on Kempton 4s in their first match (a friendly) of the season. Kempton survived 4 dropped catches and a declined lbw appeal to put on a score of 221. After another fantastic tea, W&HCC started at a fast pace, but when wickets started to fall, we were unable to sustain the run rate. While the lower order was able to pick up the run rate the 40 over limit was the ultimate constraint.

Top scorers:

Mo Ahmed (26)
Quinton Dippenaar (26)

Wickets taken by:
Q. Diepenaar: 7-0-37-1
A. Ward: 7-0-24-1
A. Hargan: 5-0-17-1
J Ayling: 3-0-##-1
