Horley CC 2nd XI v Bledlow Village Cricket Club Saturday 2nd on Sat 06 May 2017 at 13.00
Bledlow Village Cricket Club Lost By 8 Wickets

Match report The 1st league game of the season took Bledlows 2nd XI to Horley.
Horley had come down with us in the previous season so we anticipated a good game.

After calling heads and the coin showing a tail, Bledlow were forced to bat first.
Without the ever present Keeno to lead the way, Basu got a chance to open the batting! Bas played a calm innings with fellow opener Marcus only able to make 13. Unfortunately the Horley opener had two big scalps of Marcus and Reg both bowled to his name.
Reckers giving himself the number 4 spot hadn't planned on being in the game quite so early, i'd be telling a lie saying there weren't any nerves. Luckily the 1st ball going for 4 settled that down and Bas and Reckers went about constructing an innings.
When Bas had finally fell, Bloomers wandered in knowing that he still had a huge job to do with the overs remaining and the batting tail a little long...
Scraping our way to 175 with some valuable contributions from "Mamba" and Vineeth (who had perfected the back foot straight slap,until he was caught)

A late tea arrival kept the players waiting but after a 15minute delay we tucked in!

New signing Jonny K got first use of the new ball and had to try and find some rhythm on a sloped pitch. Overall he should be pleased with his 8 over spell that only lacked a wicket. Reckers down the opposite end started well finding a feather of an edge through to Bloomers with the gloves on! (He dropped the previous 2 the batsman played and missed at)
We were prehaps foolish to think it was all to be that easy as Jim was the only other to find a wicket as the Horley batsman gave nearly chance less innings! If only we held onto their captain on 13 as he went onto make 80*
Marcus and Rog also bowled some good stuff but Horley had already got themselves into a comfortable position with wickets in hand.

It wasn't the start to life in division 7 we wanted but we're sure to try harder next week!
