Falkland Sunday 3rd XI, Sunday 29th May 2011

35 Over Match: Inkpen beat Falkland by 5 wickets (Falkland 102 all out, Inkpen 103/5 in 22 overs)

After 6 years and 14 days (and 31 games) Inkpen finally win a match beating Falkland Sunday 3rd XI by 5 wickets!

Inkpen’s last win was also against Falkland back in 2005. Falkland won the toss and elected to bat, but got off to a bad start losing two wickets in the first two overs. All of Inkpen’s 8 bowlers got a wicket or two, and Falkland could only manage 102 all out with J Horne top scoring with 60. Inkpen’s reply got off to a good start with Ian Dixon hitting boundaries and losing 3 cricket balls in the process. The runs kept flowing and Inkpen reached the total in the 22nd over.

Well done to all the players and let’s not wait another six years!
