On a lovely warm day we were put in to bat on a slow track. By 30 overs we were 120 – 4 with a large target in sight. But wickets fell regularly and we limped to 156 all out in the 42nd over.
Boxted started cautiously against good tight bowling from Smith and Oakley. But slowly they chipped away. We managed to take five wickets but they crossed the line in the 42nd over in a very well marshalled run chase.
Earls Colne 156 all out. Boxted 157 -5.
Boxted 20 points, Earls Colne 5 points
