The Conference game versus Tilford seconds threw up one of those
very rare events - Matt Balkwill scored his maiden Century, carrying his bat into the
bargain. A worthy entry to join a very select band of Centurions from recent years. The
Brookwood and Pirbright matches were disappointing, the latter especially for Tim, who
needed hospital treatment after edging one into his forehead which obviously put the
dampers on proceedings. The following Saturday saw Jay Stephens wedding to Sally. A lovely
"do" it was, then came the job of dragging eleven battered souls out against
Weybourne the following day!!! Tim had made a good recovery, even turning out for us this
game and, with new helmet, scored a battling half-century.
The latter half of the
season improved on average. We had some good wins against St. Johns, Bisley, Windlesham
and especially of note, Chobham. In this time game we bowled 49 overs at them, then we
scored the required runs with a fair few overs to spare. On his way to 83, Jason Walliker
smashed two sixes onto the pavilion roof, smashing a fair amount of tiles in the process.
Previously, at Windlesham, Jason has scored one of the fastest fiftys' seen in our club.
