Last summer the Meteors managed a joyous fixture against the Butterflies CC, and another against Bradfield Waifs.
The Butterflies match was well attended and the weather held for what turned out to be wonderful day out. The Butterflies were very strong and both Hammond and Gravell batted superbly as the Meteors struggled to contain the steady flow of runs. A dropped catch look to be costly as Hammond finished on a hundred. The bowlers had a tough time with the wicket not offering too many favours. The Butterflies declared on 242, with only a couple of scalps for the Meteors. Special mention to James Barker (T 06-11) who bent his back for a tough 14 overs.
The Meteors started off well, with Theo McKibbin (K 07-12) scoring at over a run a ball, before the ship started to wobble as a flurry of quick wickets left us at 44 for 3 (although well done to Rob Johns (SF 02-07) for playing anchor!). The Meteors then clawed their way back with free-flowing shots from Adamson and his partner. But we ran out of time and closed on 170-7. A thoroughly enjoyable day out and my thanks must go to Michael Powell for his support and, as ever, Guy Steele-Bodger (Tu 74-78).
The first round of the cricketer cup against Bradfield was at home. Thank you to all of you who made the effort to play in the fixture. Sadly a swift loss saw our 2017 campaign over. This year the game is on June 17, 2018 - please make yourselves available for selection by emailing email@example.com.
