Match : Stonor vs. V & A
Date : Sunday 29th August 2004
Venue : Stonor Cricket Club
Result : Stonor won by 8 wickets
 
A very autumnal air pervaded the match between the travelling V & A and Stonor this Sunday. Despite one of the wettest Augusts on record the Stonor pitch still managed to provide a more than adequate, although skiddy, surface on which to play - thanks to the club's ever-willing, evergreen groundsmen.

Having been put into bat, the V & A struggled to post a challenging total during their 47 overs at the crease - mainly due to some accurate seamers from Marc Lovatt and the persistent flight and guile of Dan Fennell and Ron Prattley. Peter Roseff also bowled a tight spell despite a niggling back strain and Sam Halfhead, another youth cricketer, held onto a good catch at point. Only one batsman, Fraser, gave any real resistence having been given a second life as the V & A were somewhat short in numbers.

As heavy clouds gathered and with the aim of heading to the bar early, the Stonor skipper elected to elevate Olly Nicholson to the role of opener. Obligingly, the left-hander picked off any lose V & A deliveries and soon reached a rapid half-century with five 4's and five 6's. After his departure, care of a clean Collings catch in the deep, it was left to the stalwart Martin Fennell to see the game through to its conclusion after 19 overs with solid support from Ron Prattley.

With 18 games played and 18 half-centuries between them, the Stonor batsmen have shown strength in depth this season, long may it continue.
