BUILDING THE BRIDGE


Match Reports - 26th July


Robertsbridge I 220 Newhaven I 227

Robertsbridge won the toss and asked Newhaven to bat on another beautiful wicket. It was Cameron Christie (10-0-49-2) who made the breakthrough bowling the opener Billy Khan who had made 24. The runs continued to come steadily and as wickets began to fall thanks to the tight bowling from Neil Priddy(14-4-31-4) and Stephen Ramsden (11-3-35-2) Newhaven looked like they would stuggle to set a challeneging target. However, number 5 Nick Young, who had stuck around suddenly set off rushing to a rapid 70 including one over that went for 23 runs. Robertsbridge finally bowled Newhaven out setting themselves a reachable target of 228 off 46 overs. Robertsbridge's reply got off to a good start as Sam Collins(36) began quickly and made certain the score passed 50 before he fell. Newhaven quickly claimed the second wicket of Adam Neill(8) before Jack Godden hit a quick 27 to put Bridge back in ther hunt. When he fell 2 quick wickets followed as both Priddy (8) and Pat Grace (0) fell to full tosses. A fabulous counter attack from Ben Collins saw him score 47 as Robertsbridge began to look like favourites. Once he went neither 9 or 10 managed to establish themselves before falling. And so it was up to the ever present opener Savage (25) to score the runs but as he looked to be more aggresive he fell and the game was lost. This meant Robertsbridge were just 7 runs short of the win, but managed to gain 20 points.

Newhaven II 197-5 Robertsbridge II 194

Robertsbridge were back in action this week and skipper Keith Pagan won the toss and elected to bat with several players delayed in the holiday traffic. Tom Glenn(4) soon fell to home captain Ian Horner(15-2-58-3) and this brought in Alastair Neill(46) who joined Pagan(29) in a stand of 38 for the second wicket. Horner rapidly removed Neil Honnor(5) and Paul Johnson(0) but this allowed Ben Keeley(31) to come to the crease and he put on 63 with Neill striking the ball very well before being caught in the deep. Jake Lingard(44no) pushed the innings on once Neill departed putting on an unbeaten 49 runs with Dom Whittaker(13no). Newhaven started off quickly with Charlie Durrant(34) making the most of his bat until he was caught by Charlie Honnor from the bowling of golden arm himself Keith Pagan(11-1-50-3). This silenced the spectator for about a second but with Graham Godfrey(30) batting sensibly and Jack Godfrey(43no) punishing anything short he was able to wave his boundary card quite a few times as a comfortable victory was secured in the 42nd over.

Wadhurst II 82-6 Robertsbridge III 81

It was a philosophical stand in captain Ed Flint who summed up this game. While he included himself in a poor batting display he was quick to praise Lewis Chapman(23), debutant Adam Simms(15) and Alvin Atkins(16no) for at least giving their team something to defend. The bowling display from the younger members of the team brought Flint hope for the future with Chapman(6-1-16-2), Simms(4-0-17-1) along with Julian Moore(4-1-12-1) and another debutant Baillie Wright(3-0-20-2) proving that you can always take something from a match despite a heavy defeat by 4 wickets.
