Playing at home against Aston Manor, Walmley batted first. Intervals of rain stopping play reduced the game to 38 overs each. Starts from James Bristow (36), Dan Bromley (18) and Kaash Patel (27) allowed us to not collapse quickly like last week but against a strong Manor side, more runs were needed. A quick 34* from Ethan Guinivan at the end allowed us to finish on 164 after 38 overs.
2 quick wickets coming from Rob Hutchings, we thought the first win of the season would be coming. However, whilst the wickets dried up, the opposition formed partnerships at the wicket. Unfortunately, Manor cruised to victory chasing the runs in 30 overs.
