Things began well for us today, as we restricted Phil Watson's eponymous Philanderers to just 94/8. Colin Anderson (3/11) was the star with the ball and Paul Jordan (1/13), Andy Owen (1/3) and Andy Reid (1/4) all did well enough, but our dominance was best illustrated by the fact that wicket-keeper Ev Fox (1/11) took a wicket as well. Our chase seemed likely to pretty straightforward as Andy Reid (25) got good support from Mark Burrows (11) and Ev (10) . . . but it all went a little slowly and in the end we fell 1 agonising run short.
