CricketWith only 9 men and batting first, Bray were all out for 49. Harvey hit 24, Roff was 10 not out and not many others troubled the scorers. Jake Barker hit his first run of the season, ensuring that he scored more than his captain Peacock.

Mentmore knocked the runs off for the loss of 2 wickets, the highlights being a superb catch above his head at mid on by Jones, and a good throw from Curtis Anthony for a run out.

Tea was then taken and a hastily organised Twenty20 match was planned.

Mentmore batted first and racked up 146 from their 20 overs. Sayers being the main contributor in making a half century. Tight bowling from Twenty20 specialists Kerins & Flecknell Snr, ensured that the game was still a contest at this stage.

Lewis smacked the last ball of the innings to deep mid off, where Jones took a spectacular catch on the run, much to the disbelief of all in attendance.

Kerins & Peacock set about the total in fine style, racking up 70 off 8 overs before Peacock was out. The quick loss of Harvey, McDermid and the run out of Jones (still recovering from that running catch) and tight bowling from Sayers, kept Bray in check, but Kerins and Flecknell Snr were still having a go.

With 20 needed off 3 overs, Kerins was out stumped for 63 off the impressive Kirchner, and although Roff and Flecknell gave it a good go, helped by some controversial umpiring from Harvey, Bray finished 2 runs short.
