Match report The first surprise was probably the fact we got a game on given the weather forecast but what a good game it was.

Tom Piddington smashed a long hop straight to Foster (S) , Callum Morrin missed a straight one to depart LBW for 1 and the hosts found themselves 3 down for only 49 runs.

Josh Davey and Dominic Manthorpe had to rebuild and the pair looked untroubled with Davey reaching his 50 off 56 balls and Manthorpe his 50 off 48 balls before the former was bowled by Oakley having put on 97 with the latter.

Jamie Colcomb joined Manthorpe and the pair looked busy , Manthorpe hit two massive maximums and was starting to go through the gears when he was caught by Foster (H) for 73 off 63 balls.
