1sts Win..................Away!

What they couldn't achieve throughout the whole of last season, was achieved in the first game of this season!

The first XI travelled to Dunkirk to take on Notts Unity Casuals in the season opener with a below strength team but had enough in the bank to upset the hosts. Batting first on a slow wicket with little bounce, scoring was hard work. A few of the batters got into double figures but couldn't go on. However, a useful partnership between the two Billy's (Armstrong & Bennett) saw the total ease past 150. Not a big score, but something to bowl at.

The bowling was inspired and Unity never threatened the target. Kyle Welch lead the way with four wickets, Billy Armstrong took 2 and Nathan Johnston on his league debut took 3 as Unity were bowled out for just 104.

A great start to the season, long may it continue!
