The 1XI battled the rain but were ultimately beaten by the weather. Away to Tuddenham we posted 244 for 8 in our 40 overs, the hosts were 86 for 2 after 16 in reply we eventually gave in to the elements. Sully 63, Brad 37, Mox 33 and 2 wickets for coach Petts being our highlights.
The 2nd XI did manage to complete a 30 overs per side game and got their season off to a great win beating Dunmow by 36 runs. We posted 186 for 3, Grant 77, Lingard 49* then bowled the oppo out for 150 to secure the 20 points, 4 wickets for Green and 3 for Shaanjeai.
The Sunday XI were on course for victory when again the rain intervened. We posted 179 in our 30 overs with 50's (and retired), for Frosty and Sully, the New Inn were 122 for 6 from 22 overs when the match was abandoned with all of the young Lions bowling and taking wickets, (Lucas, Nat, Jack & Charlie). Highlight of the weekend however goes to Coach Berger with what can only be described as a "Beefy Bomb", launching one over the rope towards the end of our innings, it really was a beautiful sight!
