Sun 22 April - Betsham

Posted on 23rd April in 2007, Friendly Match Reports

Lost by 110 runs to Betsham

The Sunday XI were thrown in at the deep end against a strong Betsham team, who mustered 277 for 7 off their 40 overs, including two batsman retiring on 100 and 50. Highlights of Shoreham’s fielding performance were few and far between but included a catch by Tim Martin, a smart run-out by George Rivett, expensive figures from all seven bowlers, and an early bid by the current holder to retain the Ray Trick fielding award. No less than three debutants were making an appearance for the home side - Patrick Barrett, Clive Tilley and Steve Newitt, who kept well. In reply Shoreham worked hard against some tight bowling but it was only when Sam Trick (35) joined John Dinnis (50) that the scoreboard began to warm up. The innings eventually subsided in the 38th over for 167 - which at least was a lot more than the Saturday team managed. An enjoyable time was had by all nonetheless and the Rivett tea was widely appreciated. Proceedings concluded at The George where the beer was £2 per pint to mark St George’s day.
