Farncombe Wanderers (122/6) beat Frimley Green Cricket Club (119 all out) by 4 wickets

Match Detail
FGCC, losing an important toss, were inserted on a wet wicket here but started well regardless. Jim Barker's 37 was the main contributor in an opening stand of 47, but once Gordon Marsh fell, others soon followed. Ultimately some very tight Farncombe bowling restricted Frimley Green to a slightly under-par 119 all out despite Nick Gates's quickfire 20. Still, desperate for a first victory of the season, FGCC fancied their chances and tried gamely for the win. With the opening bowlers unable to eke out a wicket despite some great economy from Nick Gates, David Huggett was brought on and eventually nipped out the two openers. Shahid Hussain got another, and with skipper Gordon Marsh bringing himself on and taking two quick wickets, Frimley Green were in with a real chance. However, Dawkins and MacDonald eventually got their side over the line with 4 wickets remaining - a close encounter and a good win for Farncombe.

: Excellent reactions from Jules to stop a certain four off his own bowling... leading to a badly injured foot.
