Both sides played Hartley, in a difficult week of, let's say, limited availability of players !!!
At home the 1s were asked to bat. The highlights consisted of Ben Allon's 36 and 24 extras in Sibton's poor total of 113 in 30.3 poor overs.
In reply Hartley teed it up and quickly passed the total inside 15 overs for no wickets. (That said, the scorebook does tell a story but it did need pcitures/video with it!)
Away, well not much better I'm afraid. A good start with 79 for the first wicket. Unfortunately it was downhill from there as the 2s slumped to 135 all out in the 40th over. Terry Dunham top scored with 42 and Will Fabbro 25.
Unfortunately with next to no bowling, Hartley did pass the total but not till the 40th over but again without loss of a wicket. A fine effort by the 2s in the circumstances and thanks must go to those who stood up to be counted especially the youngsters (and their parents) and occasional players - thank you.
1 point out of 40 is not good !!! I hope we don't have another week like the one just gone for everyone's sake.
Much work to be done to get both sides out of the drop zone.
Next week the 2s are at home to Gore Court and the 1s away to Bickley Park.
