M H Two Counties O 50s v Halstead Vets at Halstead on 17/9/2017 ( timed game)
Halstead 124 for 4 after 51 overs J Rose 62, G Dicker 42,B Tompkins  2-14

Match abandoned as a draw after heavy rain

Yet again the M H Two Counties O 50s team had their efforts dashed by the weather. Halstead had struggled to 124 for 4 after 51 overs on a difficult wicket when the heavens opened and yet again their match had to be abandoned with the ground far to wet to continue. For Halstead Justin Rose 62 and Gary Dicker 42 had figured well with Bruce Tompkins bowling an outstanding spell of 12 overs that had netted him 2-14. In fact it had taken Halstead 42 balls before they scored their first run. Newcomers Trevor Money and Mike Newman both showed up well with the ball for the Two Counties. As ever the Halstead Club were excellent hosts and a fine lunch and tea was well enjoyed by all before an early homeward journey.

Kindest regards
