Second team manager Gav Shields was in buoyant mood after this extremely well fought victory. With several major players away or in the first team the side had a fragile look about it. however the remaining regulars dug deep and put up a defendable total well assisted by young Corey hope’s great knock .the last 4 wickets putting 80 on . After a quick fire start for Enfield the Lowerhouse bowling dug equally deep and clawed the game back. Indeed only in the last 10 overs were Lowerhouse favourites at any stage.

Danny Simm 3-16 Hamzah Zaman 16
James Wheatcroft 2- 15 Michael Rogan 12

Despite the bowlers best efforts the fielders contrived to present Longridge with dropped catches, misfields and poor throws. With some notable exceptions from the above and the under 13s in the team, the batsmen presented Longridge with 3 unnecessary run outs and a couple of simply woeful shots. After a stiff talking to it will be noses to the grindstone at training.
