Fenwick CC – 114 all out ‘V’ Torrevieja CC – 117 for 7
LEAGUE season over, Torrevieja CC entertained a touring team from Fenwick in Yorkshire in a friendly fixture.
The tourists elected to bat first after winning the toss and immediately regretted the decision finding themselves 15 for 3 after 5 overs. Ben Randall and Mark Wright got their heads down and steadied the side but both eventually fell LBW to some accurate Torrevieja bowling from Paul Harvey (3 for 9) and ‘Happy’ Singh (2 for 11). For Fenwick, Richie Randall attempted to hold the innings together but he was left stranded on 38 not out as they were bowled out for 114.
The early Torrevieja batsmen were obviously in something of a hurry to finish of the game as they went along at 10 runs per over; the scoreboard showing 50 for 3 from the first 5 overs. Parminder Singh, Robin Singh and Hein Muller all reached double figures in double quick time, and set the scene for Paul Michael to see Torrevieja home after just 19 overs with a blistering 54 not out. The pick of the Fenwick bowlers were Ben Randall with 3 for 26 and Stewart Rockliffe picking up 2 for 15.
Torrevieja CC won by 3 wickets with 21 overs to spare followed by both teams enjoying a few beers and agreeing a good day had been enjoyed by all.
