2010 Match Report
It was an exciting finish at Reed as the Sunday seconds faced up against Woodcutters. Reed batted first and for most of the innings it was the Garrott show as openers Paul and George Garrott put on 127 for the first wicket, both father and son scoring half centuries. Paul was the first wicket to fall for 59 eventually followed by George for a well made 80. The final 10 overs saw Tom Greaves knock the ball about to all parts of the ground to take Reed to 228 for 2, Greaves (56*) and Mathew Naeem (4*) came off undefeated. After yet another exceptional tea Reed went about defending their score, Christian Martin (6-0-30-1) took the first wicket thanks to a good catch at point by Lloyd Bowman. There was then a partnership of 102 between Burdness (64) and Isaacs (101*) before Greaves took a fantastic diving catch at mid off to break the pair up. Wickets then began to fall at regular intervals, falling to Matt Bowles (8-0-44-1), George Garrott (7-0-38-2) and Masseh Naeem (5.3-0-30-2). It came down to the final over as the opposition needed 6 to win which they did with just three balls remaining.
