Losing Draw for Walmley 2nds

Walmley lost the toss and was put on to field first. David Clough and Max Southgate opened bowling, David bowling very tight, not letting them score many runs and we were on top. However after a few overs and a few missed chances, one of the opening bats started scoring quickly. Scott Davies came on and took 4 wickets in his first spell. Unfortunately the opening bats was still not out and proceeded to get 100 gradually after some tight bowling by Scott Pepper and Perry Henderson. Walmley kept bowling a tight line and restricted RM CC to 237 in their allocated overs.

Walmley lost an early wicket but it seemed Alex Gower and Dan Bromley would give us a solid foundation but one wicket led to another and ended up 9 down with about 10 overs to go barley 100 runs on the board. David Clough and Tom Cleaver saw us through to the last over. Scott Pepper came in for last 3 balls of the innings to get a losing draw for Walmley.
