For our first home match of the season we welcomed Lindsell to Bures. The pitch was
beautifully prepared and played really well – so a huge thank you to Chris Ayers and
Carl Wright for all their hard work, together with their support crew of Zane, Gordon
and Rob.
Lindsell capitalised on the great pitch and were unfortunately helped by too many
dropped catches and they scored 213, which was about 80 more than they should have
achieved. Good bowling performances all round, notably Brewer (2 for 14), with
Wright and Tozer also getting 2 wickets apiece.
Sadly Bures were unable to equal Lindsell’s batting achievement and were bowled out
for a rather paltry 86. Cracey top scored with 32 but the batting highlight of the day
was seeing Rob Witt reach double figures (not out) – not that he mentioned it at all!
Such a delicious tea was prepared by Zane and Carl that they may well be asked to do
it again! Also thank you to Zane for the marvellous working showers and to Gordon
and Lauren for planting the beautiful flowers by the pavilion. Once more a great day
was had by all, and with a few more catches caught things may have been a little
