Hot day by the sea…and recycling centre

Earls Colne made the long trip down to sunny Harwich with only 9 players. After being inserted into bat Colne made the usual brisk start with openers Daryl Sleeman and Pat Kerry getting off to a quick start with Pat attacking from the off. He finally fell on 54 and Daryl made 46. The incoming batsman all getting under 10 with only Tom Bosworth making it to double figures as S Harrington ripped through our batting and finished with figures of 5 wickets for 21 runs, to leave Colne 168 all out 
After a fantastic tea laid on by Harwich, we took to the field with mammoth task of restricting the opposition with only 9 players. Harwich got off to a good.start with N. Steven’s (20) and A. Double(70) hitting the 2 opening bowlers out the attack. Luke Booty and Paul Bromley slowed down the rate and then Steve Wilsher and Ian Doyle came on and took 3 wickets between them and took the game into the 34th over when Harwich hit the winning runs.
A hard day’s cricket for Colne but well fought
