Match 14 (21st scheduled), 2016: September 4

Tetherdown Trundlers CC vs Pimlico Strollers CC

Tetherdown trundle past Strollers to seal victory
posted: September 5, 2016

We unfortunately came up second best in our hastily arranged extra fixture against the Tetherdown Trundlers yesterday. Having won the toss at a cloudy North Middlesex CC, Gav opted to bat first. However, despite good starts from several of our batsmen (including débutant Toby Culham), we were only able to post a somewhat under par 170 ...this largely thanks to a lusty 33 from Sam Adamson who, supported by Bruce — the founding Stroller himself making a very welcome return to the side after a 2 year absence — was able to mount a rearguard action that ensured we had something to bowl at.

However, despite the early removal of Trundlers skipper Frais and number three Bowfield, thanks to two well taken catches by Abhik and the Count, we were unable to make further inroads. With Colley and Phillips sharing an unbeaten 100+ 3rd wicket stand the opposition trundled over the winning line in the 28th over. Nevertheless it was great to get the additional game in and even better to see a refreshing combination of new faces and Strollers masters of old sharing the field.
