After losing the toss and being told to bowl with 10 players we started well with the first three wickets falling for under 35 runs with good bowling from openers Aiano and Southam. Steve and myself then managed to keep the batsmen quiet for a period of around 10 overs which included a number of lucky breaks from the batsmen until their number 4 took 30 runs off of 2 overs. Steve bowled tightly through his ten without reward and new man Frankie Edwards came on and looked dangerous. The introduction of K Stanbridge did the damage taking 4-46 from 7 overs at the death. Rayleigh finished on 247-7.
In reply we never got going with Jake top scoring with 12. A last wicket partnership of 15 between Andy Trowse and Izzie Nixon showed that batting was reasonable out in the middle. We were bowled out for 46.
