The Mote 231, Old Wilsonians 233 for 6
An opening partnership of 88 between Richard Coles (70) and Matthew White (39), substantiated by one of 69 between Coles and Theeshan Satkunaseelan (28), put The Mote in a strong position for an assault on the Old Wilsonian bowlers for their last 14 overs instead of which the latter dismissed their last eight batsmen for just 74 runs, Syd Sherlock finishing with 5 for 37 and Dave Ellicott-White 4 for 30
By complete contrast the OWs lost two early wickets before putting five match winning partnerships together, Matt Golding (94) and Syd Sherlock (22), with 50, Golding and Akeem Ifill (18) added a further 49, then Golding and Jacob Gold (24) joined the party with 32 and Michael Mitchell (32 n.o) helped Golding to add 28 for the sixth wicket before the latter was trapped lbw just six runs short of what would have been a well-deserved century
Mitchell was then joined by Jonathan Rodda (13 n.o) for an unbeaten, but match winning partnership of 40 to see the visitors home with over three overs to spare. How the hosts must have regretted not pushing home their advantage when they were well and truly in the driving seat
Old Wilsonians' 2nd Xl 339 for 4, The Mote 2nd Xl 225 for 5
There were runs galore in this game - 564 in total - including two centuries, one for each side, with only 9 wickets falling in the 100 overs play
Batting first the OWs were indebted to Sanath Dandeniya (112), Siva Ranjan Ranjan (65), Dan Seston (45), Danny Phillips (59 n.o) and Jake Phillips (30 n.o) for their mammoth total as The Mote's bowlers toiled in the summer sunshine
In reply The Mote were indebted to James Hodgson (127 n.o) for more than half of their runs - he had also been thier most succerssful bowler with 2 for 67, as they seemed content to settle for maximum batting points, David Pilgrim finishing with an admirable 2 for 26 from his 10 overs for the OWs
Old Wilsonians' 3rd Xl 165 for 8, Bexley 5th Xl 135 for 9
In a low scoring game Old Wilsonians got the better of Bexley by 30 runs with the bowlers decisively in the ascendancy.
The OW skipper, Josh Holland, led by example as he hit 59 before then going on to take 3 for 26 when it came to his side's turn to bowl, with Steve Blunt (24) and Xavier Hussein (29 n.o) also making useful runs for the home side, whilst Jake Fairman, Oscar Hart, Lucas Hart and Bis Das all taking two wickets for the visitors
Bexley failed in their run chase because only Lucas Hart (24) and David Hendry (25) made any substantial contributions, with Holland being well supported in the bowling department by Shehan Sivaranjan and Joe Jukes both taking two wickets to add to the skipper's three
