Season Finale

Our final game of the season took us to Coggeshall, a ground that very few Cavaliers had ever played at. Although the wicket was well worn it played well and served up a good game with Cavaliers posting a respectable score but lacking front line bowling to defend. Darren continued in his new role of opening bat and was unlucky to receive a great delivery in the 'corridor' and an excellent catch at first slip. Jack came in to join Simon (68) and continued where they had left off the week before at Copford in adding 68 runs before Jack sliced a long hop in the air to mid-off and another fine catch. When Simon fell to a tight stumping decision there was still quite a bit of work to be done to secure a decent total but Dan Smith played straight and struck some fine shots in making an unbeaten 46; supported was offered by Stuart and JJ so we were only 5 wickets down at the close with 181 on the board.
