Match Report by 3rd XI skipper, Jainesh Patel
The first round of the knockout saw our 3rd XI matched against Wolverhampton CC. on a lovely sunny evening at Danescourt.
FCC won the toss and elected to bowl. A superb opening spell from Scott Wickson put us in a prime position from the offset. Scott finished with figures of 4-14 from his 4 overs, and was well supported by Jinda and Matt who got 3 wickets each. This excellent bowling and fielding display put us in a strong position as we bowled out our opposition for 102 in the 20th over.
We didn’t get off to the best of starts with our openers falling early doors. However, Bellamy played a very mature innings finishing with an excellent 41*. He took the team home by hitting the winning runs. He was well supported out in the middle by Lovepreet who made a steady 13*.
This great win sees us into the next round of the cup. We all have high hopes for this competition!
