This was a T20 match, skippered by Tom Grant who, come the day, was unable to play due to injury so Jack Bramwell did the honours. We batted first, didn’t get off to a quick start – 69 from 10 overs – but finished with a decent flourish that enabled us to post a total of 152. Richard Mansell , and Simon Cottle  contributed well, Jack Bramwell  was punished by their 6-over-the-wall-and-out regulation, even though it was a no ball, but the late flourish from Nick Leech  and Simon Campbell  catapulted the score from 99 after 15 overs to 152 at the close.
Our early reply with the ball was mean! Rupert Bagnall bowled 4 overs for 4 runs and George Leishman 3 overs for 10 runs, plus the wicket of the opener. After that only their skipper Joe Maloney made a charge with a very useful 52* but the asking rate was just too much and they finished on 135 at stumps.
After that it was off to the pub in Great Cheverell for some refreshment and to see who would be fit for the next match, also a T20, on Thursday vs Devizes CC.
