Battle I 217-6 Robertsbridge I 206
So to the last game of the season and a good fighting performance to round things off. Ben Collins won the toss and asked Battle to bat. They soon lost Guy Ballard(9) falling to a stumping by David Neill off the frugal Stephen Ramsden(10-4-23-2). Ramsden accounted for Jo Carthew trapped in front of the stumps LBW. This brought in Mike Gedye(98) to join Curtis Coombes(57) in a stand of 131 which was built steadily and sensibly, hitting the bad balls to the boundary and being wary of the odd uneven bounce. The pair both fell to catches behind the wicket by Neill from the bowling of Alex Collins(10-0-45-2). In reply Adam Neill(87) anchored the innings himself combining solid defence with punishment of the bad ball. He put on 55 with David Neill(22) and after Ben Collins joined the Primary Club he added 68 with Pat Grace(25). He was finally out to the impressive Gedye(9-0-48-6) who picked off most of the middle order. The lower order seemed to be inching towards the target and when the first two balls of the last over were hit for four by Rob Geaney(10) it looked like the target of 19 could be reached but he was bowled by David Baldock(7.4-1-37-2) and the game was over.
Robertsbridge II 311-2 St Peter's III 285
The League season at The Clappers was rounded off with an absolute run fest on Saturday. Robertsbridge were asked to bat and after Martin Simms(12) was out there followed a stand of 271 between Paul Nice(177 not out) and Paul Johnson(96). Nice hit a remarkable 11 sixes and 20 fours in his innings which left the visiting bowlers rather shell-shocked. Not to be outdone the already promoted St Peters showed that they could hit the ball well too and Joe Walker(50) and Paul Goss(69) hit nine sixes between them as an unlikely victory looked on the cards. In the end it proved a step too far and the season ended with a victory for Robertsbridge.
