On May 12th Eastington CC played their second game of the season, beating Cam 3rds at Snakey Lane. Eastington batted first and scored a creditable 168 in 40 overs Roger Breeze 48 not out and Villager Brian Wright with 36. Cam came out to bat and were bowled out for 32 with the wickets being shared evenly amongst our bowlers. Highlight of the innings was a one handed catch from a viscous drive by the athletic Roger Beese.
On May 19th ECC played host to Stroud 3rds.Eastington won the toss and batted. Opener Fred Burrage scored a steady 56 with some very tight bowling from Stroud. When Paul Hancock came to the crease 140 looked to be a possible score for Eastington, he unleashed a barrage of big hitting – his 69, including 8 fours and 3 sixes , took Eastington to 186 at the end of 40 overs. Stroud started very well with opener Cox scoring 50. At half way they were 84 for 2 then Paul Hancock took 3 wickets for 25 and Stroud collapsed to 131 all out.
Next game is away at Haresfield.
