Coundon batted first reaching 71 all out, as I say it was a bowlers wicket. Their top scorer was AD Tait with 17. With the ball Chris Valance 2 for 7, Brad Davis 2 for 22, Manna Seth 5 for 19 and Derrick Steinberg 1 for 23 used the surface well. After tea we had to make the most of a drying wicket.
Lee Henderson was lost early for 0, closely followed by Michael Robbie for 1. Neil Matthews added 11 before losing his wicket LBW. Luke Richardson stepped up to steady the ship posting 23 not out. At the other end Chris Valance 12, Manna Seth 0, Tom Rennie 9 and Brad Davis 4 not out saw us to our first twenty points of season.
Not a brilliant game for the spectators, but played in the right spirit and nice to see the Coundon lads back at the rugby club after the game.
The seconds versus Coundon twos was cancelled as Coundon were unable to raise two sides. So 20 points were gained.
