Fernhurst Cricket Club Sunday XI v Ancient Mariners on Sun 17 Apr 2011 at 14:00
Fernhurst Cricket Club Won by 27 runs

Match report So the Summer has arrived and the glorious setting of Fernhurst was prepared for the visit of the Ancient Mariners.....Both teams had turned up with what they both considered strong batting lineups however the soft wicket had other ideas.

Fernhurst went off to a flyer with the opening pair of Jackman and Melrose racing to 40 runs in only a few overs. With equally as strong batsman behind them Fernhurst should have gone on to put 180+ on the board but with a tailend collapse The Mighty Fern only put 104 on the board and with 45 minutes before tea the Mariners took to the crease.

With his first taste of English wickets "The Rolling Thunder from Downunder" known as Brad Spinks took to the task in hand with Venom. Cutting through the top order he finished on debut stats of 6 for 25 off 11 overs. At the other end Paul Predente held his own and contained the batsman and took 2 useful wickets to back up the Thunder.

It was than a question of picking off the tailenders who were digging their heels in......The final wicket fell with a bowling from another new recruit to the club.....Nicolas "The Whackman" Jackman using the infamous Fernhurst Sun to bamboozle the batsman to driving a shot straight to Buckethands Tytler....Game over, job done and to the bar......Skipper
