Match Date: Saturday 13th April
Location: John Findlay Memorial Ground
Report: Jon Newis, captain Saturday 1sts
Saturday 1sts had a friendly, winning the toss and bowling first. We got off to a good start with Recordo Gordon taking two (10-54-2)in his first spell for Walmley and Sachin Dubb keeping things as tight from the other end. With a spin heavy attack and a short boundary we bowled well, Mo Sheikh the pick of the economy rates with 10 overs only going for 11. They managed to form a strong partnership and added on some runs late on to get them to 249-6 off their 50, with Dinuk de Silva also taking his first Walmley senior wicket.
Now onto the batting. We struggled from the offset and fell we short, with a disappointing finish and plenty to improve on with the bat, roll on next week into our first league game off the year.
