After 4 rained off matches the season finally started with our first Kent Regional League match against Herne Bay CC.
Dan won the toss and made the wise choice to bowl first. Early season rustiness was evident with SCC racking up 39 extras (13b 3lb 20w 3nb ) which proved to be the second highest score of the Herne Bay innings by some distance. With only one batsmen breaking into double figures the 39 extras were not popular with the skipper. A fine bowling performance from Joe Pritchard (17-4 from 4 overs) and Tom Leaver (11-3 from 9 overs) backed up by Rosie, Macca and debutant James Brigton.
With 103 runs on the board the win seemed likely for Saltwood, but we did manage to do it the hard way ending up at 25-4 before Dan and James took control. Dan took a back seat, leaving James to bash a couple of sixes to finish off the match and get 20 points on the board.
