W&HCC 3rd XI Season Report 2002
It was a mixed year for the 3rd XI as much of the previous years solid batting line up was now to be found in the 1st and 2nd XI. The side were unbeaten for the first month of the season, coming within 2 runs of beating Malden who went on the be promoted, and 1 run of taking a winning draw off Dulwich, who were in contention for the entire season. Members new and old, in Jayson Bird and John Dunbar made valuable and telling contributions throughout the season, whilst Neil Cheetham topped the batting averages and registered one of only two tons in the club this season. Several members of the burgeoning U15 team made appearances for the 3rd XI this year, with Sharaz Hussain making the greatest impression on the pitch, with Mark Worgan the greatest impression on the teas. Overall the season will reviewed with some disappointment. A notable lack of catches and some abject team batting performances clearly point the way forward, however there is much potential to realise and the strengthening throughout the club would suggest a better result next time.
