Dunsfold Innings
144 for 4

Ancient Mariners Innings
146 for 7

Heavy leaden skies swollen with anticipated rain greeted the Mariners at Dunsfold on Sunday afternoon. Enthusiasm in the camp was modest. Even Skipper JC had only managed two halves of bitter at the Sun Inn - was this a new found maturity or simply the effects of the Westwood coming-of-age party the night before?

A semi-negotiated toss saw Dunsfold bat first in what looked like bowling friendly conditions however two overs into their innings the sun came out and the much anticipated rain never materialised.

The Mariners' bowling was, it is fair to say, better than their fielding with a number of catches not taken despite some valiant efforts.

Freddie once again produced a miserly spell (1 for 15 off 8) backed up by The "Spicer boys", the middle-aged Westwood and Wooters. A rampant last wicket stand from Dunsfold saw them accelerate to 144 off their allotted 35 overs.

Debutant John Gumpel and Mariners stalwart Tim Goldman opened the batting for AMCC cautiously and accumulated 12 from the first 10 overs before Tim got a low straight one that brought Freddie to the crease. Freddie set about the Dunsfold bowling with gusto and although wickets continued to fall at the other end (a couple controversially as is always the way at Dunsfold....), the Mariners gradually brought the target into view.

Wootters chipped in with 12 before Archie Spicer knocked the winning runs from the penultimate over finishing on 7 not out. Freddie carried his bat to a magnificent 88 not out and comfortable took the Mariner of the match award.

Two wins in a row.....can we make it a straight three? Off to Charterhouse for the next exciting instalment.
