North Enfield 185 / 8 (40.0) (D.Sanders 89, T.Coughlan 35*, G.Hughes 31)
Southgate Compton 187 / 7 (36.2) (D.Malleson 4/8, T.Coughlan 2/29)
A good game once again against our friends from Compton. North Enfield decided to bat first and after 9 overs had scored 3 runs...Del went in a bit higher up the order, and along with Garth managed to get things going a bit to reach about 80 at drinks. Some yahoo-ing eventually gave us a competitive total of 185, which included another solid 30+ from Tom C. The usual excellent Tea at Compton followed.
Mally and Ken opened the bowling, with Mally bowling the opener with a marginally quicker one to end his first spell of 6 overs, 3 maidens, 1 for 4. Ken wobbled away at the other end, and picked up a couple of wickets in his 8 overs. Tom C then bowled a terrific spell, picking up 2 wickets for under 30. At drinks, with 100 needed off 20, we felt we had a chance. Sadly it was not to be after the 2nd and 3rd change bowlers struggled a bit, but a good spell from Bradders on debut and some good overs from Del still left Compton with work to do. Mally came back into the attack and picked up a double-wicket maiden, and then another wicket in his 8th over, which gave a very small glimmer of hope. But Compton had enough overs and batsman left to secure the victory.
