Southborough Cricket Club First XI v Cudham Wyse on Sat 08 Aug 2015 at 14:00
Southborough Cricket Club Lost by 32 runs

Match report "Catches win matches". Sadly my drop of Mansoor Haffeez (61) off the first ball of Jack Robert's bowling, proved this old cricketing adage.

It was the difference in an otherwise closely contested game which saw us not quite get over the line but as a team put in an excellent improved performance.

There were some notable contributions all round. The pick of the bowlers was Sammie and Jansher, with promising spells from Adam and Jack (Roberts).

The fielding apart from the above was generally good and has been a plus all season. It is something we need to keep improving on, and encouraging each other with, especially, for the remaining games of the season.

The run chase showed an improvement in our batting approach which has been a concern of late. Steve scored an excellent (52); Andy and I put on (71) for the first wicket. There are players in this team who are, all capable of getting to fifty and higher. It is an area which when we get right will help us build big partnerships, and see us back winning again! We got close to their 242 total and with catches being held this was a game on another day I'm convinced with a few improvements we could have won.

It is a big game this Saturday against Leigh, let's build on this performance and get a much needed win!
