Match report On a warm and sunny day Old Leightonians skipper Samuels won the toss and inserted the Incogniti. Veteran openers Dugdale and Furness got off to a slow start on a pitch that was slow with unusual bounce due the dryness of the pitch. it was like a minefield. Dugdale was first to go for 1 caught by Vinden off the bowling of Samuels,the score 4 for 1 run. Mason next in joined Furness and batted steadily until Furness was caught by Maylon in the covers off the bowling of Samuels for 13 runs. the score 24 for 2 in the 10th over. Bowry the inform batsman with two previous centuries to his name joined Mason. Shashank replaced Samuels and in his second over had Bowry LBW for 13 runs, after his first three balls all despatched to the boundary. The decision was very dubious one, triggered by the Sergeant Major Umpire who wanted to make a name for himself. The score had moved to 39 for 3 in 12 overs. Whyte was promoted up the order to push the score along, Mason and Whyte moved the score on slowly. Whyte was LBW to Gutierrez for 8 runs in the 16 over the score 59 fo 4.

Samuels reached fifty and R Price at the other end batted steadily. Ahmed replaced Bowry and removed the troublesome Samuels for a good 62 runs,the score 171 all out in 39.5overs.

A good game for the Incogniti after some late cry-offs, we assembled a good side. The Leighton Park school pitch was not up to its usual high standard. it was very dry and lacking attention and water, hence the unusual bounce.

My thanks to Claire for scoring and for Gordon for umpiring on the day, we all retreated to the "Black Boy Pub" for a well earned drink on a fine day.
