Bexley End of Winter Season Match and Presentation Evening
A better than expected turn out for this fixture necessitated a slight change in format to enable all those players that wanted to get a game involved.
It was especially encouraging to see so many of the schools pupils wanting to play, in some cases players were playing in their first ever competitive match. A tight match took place and the new players all stood up to the test well.
Batting first the more experienced Bexley team attained a total of 304-7 and in reply the school made steady progress at were ahead of the run rate on several occasions but were eventually restricted to a total of 277-7 resulting in a 27 run victory for the visitors.
The winning team got 2 dips into the chocolate box with the school players getting one dip. Many thanks to those that helped on the day, Andy Clay (photography), Andrew Hill (scorer and collecting match fees) and lots of support from the parents.
