Rovers beat Old Georgians by 38 runs to make the 2018 Cricketer Trophy final!

July 14, 2018

The Rovers sterling season continued on Sunday with the club beating last year's finalists Old Georgians to make it into the Cricketer Trophy final. 

Having won the toss (6 out 7 for the season), AJ Wood and J.Dawling strode to the crease. The pair put on a solid 40 before Dawling was caught. Disco Steve then took up the mantle and both he and AJ took it to the Old Georgians. Both knocked up half centuries and took us to a great position before some solid hitting from Wakers and H.Loughton lower down the order saw us get up to 248.


In response, N.Ballamy and H.Loughton bowled tight up top limiting their openers in the opening 10 overs. The Georgians then got going and despite some good bowling from Gane and Jallen, the Georgians were edging closer and closer courtesy mostly of their number 4 - ex-Derbyshire pro O'Gorman - who was looking very tidy.


With 10 overs left it was very much in the balance with the Old Georgians requiring a run a ball with 5 wickets in hand. This all changed when O'Gorman ran past a Freano leggie and was stumped (cueing jubilant scenes).


The Georgian lower order were then not able to keep up with the required rate and the reintroduction of Loughton and Ballamy saw them bowled out for 212 (38 runs short).

The victory capped an absolutely unbelievable week for the Rovers: played 7, won 6 (2 walkovers), lost 1.


The final game of the season will be the final of the Cricketer Trophy against Old Milfieldians on Sunday 5 August at Gerrards Cross cricket ground.

Up the Rovers!
