REPORT – Thu 14th August vs St Giles AWAY

Clouds greeted The Blades for the inaugural fixture vs St Giles at North Walls Winchester

The opponents won the toss and donned the pads. In a gloomy 16 overs, The Blades managed to peg them back, Meering taking two wickets, and St Giles amassed a gettable total of 104 for 5.

 

After a rain shower which continues as drizzle for most of the second innings, The Blades took to the pool crease. A slow start increased in pace with opener Underwood helping himself to an unbeaten 27, whilst Hurst grabbed 23 before being bowled. A moment of history towards the end saw Whitears Junior and Senior bat together, The Blades’ first father-and-son partnership in the middle, but even Jaws and the Chairman could not reach the target. A brave Blades effort fell 14 runs short as the innings closed on 90 for 5.
