Match Report

Lyndhurst put up a good fight with the bat before the rain came and spoiled a potentially intriguing contest against new opposition North Enfield.

Jeff got Lyndhurst up and running with a typically Jeff-like 21 before getting out to an un-Jeff-like drive caught and bowled. Little Liam continued his decent form at number 3, hitting a few lovely-looking drives but picking fielders. The sound coming from his bat when he was nailing them to the covers makes me think he needs a new one (something to think about Kev??) JJ played a cautious 40 from 53 balls before edging the spinner P White onto his stumps, and James smashed 23 from 9 balls when faced with some premium pies! Liam and Kieran chipped in again down the order with 19 and 12 respectively, and Lyndhurst's 130 was a reasonable total on a deck which looked pretty good but ended up proving difficult to score freely on with some defensive fields set around the bottom of the short boundary slope.

North Enfield got off to a speculative start, with George and Kieran bowling good lines. When Kieran had the opener plumb in front, Lyndhurst looked well in the game, but the rain followed soon after. There was talk of a pool competition to decide the whole affair but this did not materialise as people were content to watch GB get smashed by Romania at waterpolo instead.

It was a good effort to fulfill the fixture given that we were far from a full XI, but those of us who were there did a great job and hopefully did enough for North Enfield to host us again next year!
