1sts into T20 Semi Final

The 1sts moved into the semi-final of the Chris Trafford T20 Cup with a hard-fought win against Calverton at the Strand.
After winning the toss skipper Chris Allcoat, somewhat surprisingly on such a dull evening, asked the visitors to bat first.  Some tight bowling and fielding restricted Calverton to 116 off their 20 overs with no bowler going for as many as 7 runs per over.
The reply got off to a bad start with 4 wickets down for just 14 runs.  However Martin Shoemaker with 5 4s and a six in his 48 runs and a succession of

partners gradually eased the score towards the target.  It was left to Arjun Sandhu (13) and Martin Rayner (11) to see us home with just 5 balls and 2 wickets to spare.

Great entertainment, a tight finish that could have gone either way and all played in an excellent spirit.  Congratulations to our lads and commiserations to Calverton.
