And so it finally comes to an end. We did well to play so far into October when lesser men would not. The grass on the outfield was long, the rain fell again, but still we triumphed.
Toby Chasseaud anchored the innings with 129 not out, his highest score of another prolific season, though that hasn't stopped him moaning about the anniversary match not being included in the stats. Jon Thornton (43) and Rizwan Siddiqui (28) helped us to a total of 225 in our allotted 35 overs.
In reply, Old Grammarians made it to 163 all out, with Sajid Shaikh taking a hat-trick thanks to a great catch by Paul Davis at short fine leg – only for it to be ruled a no-ball on height.
Thanks to Peter Hollman for match managing, Christopher Clayton for scoring, Sajid for bringing the tea, and to our supporters club.
