Seasons prior to 1985 do not include information about individual performances since full scorebook details have not (yet??) been input to the database for those years.

1st July – Ewell: 198 for 4 Badgers: 199 for 9
[This summary courtesy of Vinny Cibardo]
Summary: Another good win last Sunday against a decent Ewell CC side, although it did get a bit too close at the end. Ewell set us 199 to win and we were on course to reach it comfortably with Jake hitting a nice 50, then we had a small collapse mid order, losing three wickets for not many runs. Mark and Monty then steadied the ship and got us back on track before another mini collapse meant we still needed 23 with just me left in the hutch. I managed to keep out the five balls I faced (our partnership was 14 balls) and then Mark went about scoring the runs, including a three off a misfield, to reach his 50 and win the game.
Statistical Notes: The 23 run partnership that Mark and Vinny put on for the tenth wicket, whilst being a long way off the record for that wicket, is the highest tenth wicket stand in club history to win a game (the higher ones all having come batting first, in a losing cause or to save a draw) – bettering the 22 that Steve Card and Mark’s father Roy put on to win the game against Riverside in August 1979.
Jake continues to move up the rankings for half centuries, whilst Mark extends his lead in that category, but the incomplete Teddington game means that I am unable to confirm the exact impact of those scores. I can tell you, because I am keeping track of some milestones manually at the moment, that Greggy batted for the 205th time for the club, taking him past Barry Passmore into tenth on the all-time list of innings; before completing his first over, Bill passed Graham Davenport into 19th place on the list of overs bowled; and off the first ball of his second over Darrell matched Dave Tickner’s lifetime runs allowed for the club, moving past him nine balls later to take sole possession of seventh place on that list (nearly 2000 more behind his Great Uncle Allan in sixth).Back to index of results
