Welcome to Abdul Zafar, Gary Raife and Jon Finch who joined the team for the first time.
Unfortunately we had a disappointing loss to Ashtead 4th XI on Saturday. I think that there were a number of lessons to be taken away which we can use to build on future success this season. The match showed that we need to arrive on time/ warm up and make sure that we are aware of the fielding and batting objectives as the game develops. Hopefully we will not have the same problems with venue as per Ashtead this week, and I will make sure that players are confirmed by Friday evening. I believe that there is high potential in the squad and we should get the desired bowling and batting results to perform reasonably well in the league.
Top scorers v Ashtead were: Simon Townsend (26, not out) and Piers Leigh (21), while wickets were taken by:
M. Ahmed: 08-1-44-1
