On the nice hot and sunny day Ot’s & Romsey II won the toss and choose to bat first. However the usual start Romsey get on game day didn’t happen as experienced Max Smith (5) fell being caught at gully and Elliott Mitchel-Lee (19) didn’t last much longer as he soon got caught out at point flashing at a wide one. Although OT’s & Romsey II didn’t get off to a good start the Johny Dowling (24) quick hitting got Romsey some confidence back by upping the run rate. This was also helped by Nic Destefano (94) who should of got a maximum on the day. When Dowling was dismissed captain Mike Trodd (21) also got romsey a few quick runs. But it wasn’t in till Destefano and Rich Lake (70*) were in together did Romsey look like getting a big score , with both batsmen smashing boundaries left right and centre. When Destefano finally got out Shane Vidler came to the crease to help Romsey eventually reach 277 for 5.
Ot’s & Romsey started the second innings well with both opening bowlers, Dan Collins (1-22) bowling a tight spell and eventually getting the opening batsmen to snick off and Steve Kay (1-50) taking an early wicket to put the pressure on the travelling side. But it wasn’t in till the two spinning duo of experienced Max Smith (4-16) and Matt Bampton (4-42) came into the attack did Romsey finish the game early, as the Salisbury batsmen didn’t know what to do with them and a great catch from John Dowling won them the game.
