For once the sun shone and we certainly made the most of a lovely summer evening. Richmond won the toss and decided to bowl, our bowling was excellent as was our fielding, 3 catches, 2 from Johnny Carlton and and excellent caught and bowled from Johnny Carr, Tom Dowson also got a catch behind the wicket! The bowling figures were as follows: Matthew Price 2-9 with 1 maiden, Mark Walker 0-7, Johnny Carlton 0-5, Jordan Forbes 0-5, Johnny Carr 2-12, George Spink 0-9, Jack Nicholls 1-3, Gary Walker 1-0 with 2 maidens and Jack Smith 2-6, there were also 2 run outs!
