GEORGE SMITH MEMORIAL TROPHY

Thursday, May 1st

Sacc 1st XI 258-3
XL Club 259-2

The annual match in memory of George Smith took place at the
Woodbridge Oval on May 1st. Alan Fletcher won the toss and batted
first on what turned out to be a good for the batsmen only. Hersh and
Tait soon fell to the XL Club openers, Kellington and Bacon both
taking a wicket apiece to bring in the big guns of Kevin Laundon and
former bowler Ben Fletcher, who both dominated the bowlers to put on
230 for the 3rd wicket before Fletcher was stumped off Stammers for
107. With Laundon on 118 at the other end, a sporting declaration was
made with the score standing at 258-3.

The XL Club started in the same fashion, losing two quick wickets
before numbers 3 and 4 got to the crease and dominated as the Alfas
batsman had done in the first innings, with Paul Standfield and Andy
Stammers scoring 117 and 110 respectively to hand the visitors a
well-deserved victory. The only bowler to distinguish himself was
Steve Cowley, who ended with 52-2.
