On a rather overcast day we welcomed local rivals Twinstead to Bures. This fixture brought a
welcome return of some stalwarts from last year and together with the seasoned regulars they
succeeded in gaining Bures their first victory of the season.
Captain Carl won the toss again and decided to bat and apart from one notable exception (Rupert
you know who you are!) everyone chipped in with decent scores. Stevie T top scored with 31 and
Mark Brewer, who was busy extolling the virtues of the leg glance, scored 28 not out. Bures ended
up with a very respectable score of 194.
When Twinstead came into bat they attacked with 2 big hitters and for a while Bures were very
much on the back foot and worried that victory was slipping away from their grasp. David just failed
to reach 50 (runs conceded!) but following an outstanding catch by Rupert and some excellent
bowling by Captain Carl (5 for 11) the tide turned. With Will Melrose back behind the wicket and all
the bowlers taking wickets (2 for Patrick), it was a great team effort and the mighty Bures went on to
record a comfortable and well deserved victory.
A delicious tea was prepared by Gordon and Lauren thank you to them and the flowers they
planted earlier in the season were much admired too. A very happy and triumphant afternoon.
