London Fields kept their good start to the VPCCL rolling with a 16 run victory against Chat's Palace in a game that produced nearly 350 runs!
Three players short at the toss, Fields were graciously put in to bat, and steady knocks from openers Paul Teasdale (13) and Dave Lane (37) put the pressure on the opposition straightaway. A growling Jason Lord came in at 3 and roared his way to an excellent 52 not out, supported by late call-up Dan Spence who hit 20.
Late hitting from Good Karl (14) and Troylus Maximus (7), plus more wide balls than a fat-disco promoter saw us to 187 off 16 overs.
Chat's Palace came out swinging however, one batsman scoring a quickfire 50, including 6 fours in an over. However, when he retired, run scoring became harder and wickets for Chris, Dave and Karl, plus two for Troylus, left the opposition 16 runs short.
We fielded well, including some good catches from Dan, plus some smart late fielding from Arthur and won a good spirited game in near dark.London Fields Batting
