IMG_20140623_171823
Match report – Mr Cheeseman
Staff won by 32 runs.
Staff batted first, incredible opening partnership of over 50 runs by Shaun and Dan, both retired.  Myself and Toby came into bat, Toby was caught first ball, however, we agreed before game that everyone had a free hit on their first ball (he didn’t know).  Toby was eventually run out for 15.  Mr Cheeseman retired on 18 for Mr Keenan and Lerego to finish the last over.  Staff got 132 for 2.  Alex Roberts was the pick of the bowlers.
Year 11’s had a useful opening partnership with Alex Roberts and Hardev.  Hardev batted well retiring on 24 in order to give the big hitters a chance to chase down the staff score.  Dan deliberately floated a ball up to the dangerous Will Stennett who smashed the ball straight to long on where Mr Cheeseman gratefully received.  From that point onwards Year 11 struggled to stay with the required run rate eventually falling 32 runs short at the end of their 16 overs.  Mr Falvey took 2 wickets and there were several run outs.  Alex Roberts was Year 11’s star player scoring 33 not out.
Mr Falvey, however, was the man of the match – enjoy, he may not get it again.
