Lindsell v BURES CC (away)

On yet another scorching summerís day Bures went to the beautiful ground of Lindsell for the return match of the season with high hopes of obtaining our first away victory of the year. A strong side with a couple of welcome debutants and some returning youth to boost our confidence, and the bowling performance only served to bear this out. A fantastic opening burst from Freddie Morrissey and Patrick McKenna reduced Lindsell to 30 for 3 after a quarter of their innings, with Patrick not conceding a single run until his 6th over. The rest of the bowlers all supported well and chipped in with wickets, and but for a spirited fight back at the end (and once again dropping their top scorer 3 times) we would have held them to around 150. As it was the home team reached 169 in their 35 overs. Sadly the Bures batting did not come up to scratch and apart from a confident Erith father and son opening partnership and a top score of 18 by Ralph Godbold, Bures never looked likely to challenge them, especially after the heavy loss of 4 wickets in one over. A cameo by Cracey at the end of 16 runs allowed Bures to reach 82, but this was not nearly enough to get close to victory.
