The Chargers headed to Farncombe Wanderers on Tuesday for an evening match. Sadly the sun had disappeared and the wind was rather chilly! For once, Al once the toss (a very rare occurrence) and the Chargers elected to field first.

The team were thrilled to have a crew of supporters watching and cheering (and heckling!), including Paul H and Sri – although Paul thought he was coming to watch, he very kindly shared umpiring duties for the match!

Bowing duties were shared across the team and the hard work and effort of the coaching sessions was on display. Combined with excellent communication in the field, the Chargers took 4 wickets and held Farncombe to 226 after 16 overs.

After a break to warm up (with some lovely hot chocolate, thank you Farncombe!), the Chargers went into bat. Opening pair Sonia and Cat started well with 19 runs on the board. Next up Charlie W and Nikkie joined forces to add 29 – including 4 very cheeky runs from overthrows! 3rd pair Al and Louise added 23. Final pair Charlie B and Sophie closed out the match adding a whopping 37 to make 308 and a win for the Chargers.

Congrats on the win Chargers!

Thanks to everyone who came along to support, nothing like being wrapped up in blankets on a May evening as you enjoy the match!
