Remnants vs. The Spread Eagle

June 22, 1983
Fitzwilliam College

The Spread Eagle (141/6 in 20 6-ball overs)
lost to
Remnants (144/0 in 18.4 6-ball overs)
by 10 wickets.

Despite the efforts of Andy Brown (3/21), Clark Brunt and Tony Williams (both 1/17), The Spread Eagle scored pretty freely, averaging more than 7 an over for their innings. It was thus the last thing on anyone's mind that we'd canter to our first ever first ever ten-wicket victory. Clark Brunt (77*) and Martin Law (60*) scored the runs, putting together the club's biggest ever partnership in the process. But do spare a thought for Alan Heavens, due to come in at number three, who thus became the first Remnant to spend the entire innings padded up and "next in".
