President’s Day 2022

On a sunny August Bank Holiday Sunday Dan’s select President’s  X1 met at Botany Bay to play in our 50th anniversary annual cricket fixture against the Bay.

Batting first we amassed a creditable 128 runs off our allotted 25 overs. It all went down-hill after that. One of their openers presented a dolly catch which was fumbled by Tim Westbrook at short mid wicket and they proceed to build a steady score. When the Bay were on 83, captain Richard Slatford made a  bowling change which resulted in a catastrophic 46 runs off the over, mostly in “no Balls” which meant we conceded the match.

Nevertheless, the social aspect of the afternoon was brilliant as was the catering. Our thanks to Botany Bay for hosting the afternoon. A full report will follow when Richard recovers from the traumas of the day.
