Match Reports

Robertsbridge I 194 Fletching I 195

A game of two halves at ‘The Clappers’ on Saturday afternoon as the Robertsbridge 1st team were downed by an impressive Fletching batting performance. Rain in the week leading up to the match and immediately before the toss left the Fletching skipper in no doubt about his decision to bowl first but the Robertsbridge innings got off to a positive start with another good opening partnership between Adam Neill(26) and Pat Grace(9). Ben Collins(55) came in at 3 and took an immediate liking to the Fletching bowling playing an array of impressive strokes, a couple of quick wickets fell and it was up to skipper David Neill (42) to steady the ship. However, unlike last week where he had decided to drop anchor in order to get over the line, he decided that attack was the best form of defence and played some inventive strokes to push the Robertsbridge total to 194. All agreed, a good score considering the weather and having been put in to bat. Rob Park(22.4-3-74-5) bowled unchanged through the innings and Tim Stack(11-2-32-5) took the all the wickets between them.

The Fletching reply got off to the best possible start for Robertsbridge as Stephen Ramsden(6-1-37-1) took a wicket with his first ball. However these were to be the last (cricket induced) Robertsbridge smiles of the afternoon. The bowlers struggled to get their lengths right and skipper Ben Chapman(107no) and Tim Stack(65no) waited for the shorter balls and duly dispatched them to the boundary in a very impressive batting display that left Robertsbridge with only 9 points to take away from the fixture.    

Wadhurst I 97 Robertsbridge II 160

Robertsbridge travelled the short distance to Wadhurst and were asked to bat first in the light rain. Therefore it was a day to dig in against the tight bowling of Iain Bell(25-10-41-6). Tom Glenn(31), Peter Capon(29) and Saddam Been Hashem(39) all helped to build a useful score under the difficult conditions. As often happens conditions got better for the team batting second but a good bowling and fielding display meant that no home batter scored above 20. Ben Keeley(8-2-16-3) and Saddam Been Hashem(5.2-2-12-3), adding to his earlier batting for an Electric Center Man of the Match performance, were the chief wicket takers as victory came in the 33rd over.
