It seems like half a season has gone since our first match against the Met Office, so it was nice to get back to league action.

Witheridge batted first and were held to a slow start by Ben (2 overs, 1 maiden, 1 for 1) and Tom. They gradually moved through the gears but some tight bowling by Nick and Aaron pegged them back and only one of them managed to get to 30. John W was also in the wickets but things were nicely poised with two overs to go and the Witheridge retired batsman coming back out to face Mike. Old Golden arm go the better of him, Nick taking a good catch on the boundary (his second of the night) to leave them 107 all out from 18.1 overs.

In our reply Mike fell early but Ben and Aaron kept the scoring going well. After Ben retired Tom, Dave C and Nick all scored freely and kept us above the asking rate. Despite the fact that Jem was only able to walk singles he and Charles saw Cheriton over the line with 3 and a bit overs to spare.
