Our England Over 50s match took place at Billingshurst CC yesterday. I would like to express my thanks to all players, officials and volunteers who all made the afternoon a resounding success. (Richard – Chairman)

West of England Over 50s won the toss and elected to put East of England Over 50s into bat. They duly scored 163 for the loss of 6 wickets in their 20 overs. The highlight of the innings was a score of 60 not out by Anne Hardwick.
In reply, West started briskly with Caroline Gorman scoring 57 and Sue Targett scoring 62, but a batting collapse saw them reduced from 139 for 3 to 162 for 9 wkts, losing by one run with Paula Peters taking 5 wickets.
