The Third Team went into another game knowing nothing but a win would do to keep their promotion hopes alive, and when professional tosser Mark Bater won once again, he inserted our hosts Farnham Royal and we went into the field.
Toby Seagrave (pictured) led the way with the classic leg side wide, off side wide, jaffa combination to pick up the first of his four wickets in the first over, putting early pressure on our hosts.
Angus Cumming then picked up the fifth with another classic combination, a beamer followed by a full one to claim his first wicket bowled. A proficient bowling performance, with wickets also coming from Dan Boniface and James Darraugh, saw us bowl out Farnham Royal and leave ourselves a modest chase of 98.
So modest, in fact, we decided to handicap ourselves, and started our innings by falling to 0-3 in 1.4 overs. When Cumming was dismissed to leave us 33-4, we went into tea feeling anything but comfortable.
A sturdy partnership between James Darraugh and Mark Bater after tea however, put any fears to rest. The loss of Bater brought in wicket-keeper James Wheeler, who saw us home with a lovely array of shots as we eventually coasted home by five wickets.
