MATCH REPORT Victoria 70s versus Hampshire.
After a long drive from Sunbury to Southampton and on to Cadnam, we arrived at a beautifully set ground in the middle of the "New Forest", so named by William the Conqueror in 1279 as his special place for hunting.
Sharpie lost the toss and Jan, Hampshire skipper kindly allowed us to bat first.
Terry Dunn had his first hit out with the bat and opened with Eane Whitton. They had a partnership of over 100.
Players missing out today were Graham Cuddon, scoring duties, Peter Flack [Concussion], and Bobby Hopkins 13 man fielder, Mick Perrett 12 th man non batsman designated bowler.
Our batting was solid and we passed 200 for the first time, which we had been aiming for. Total was 3 / 222.
Neville Crane 23 , Gary Ashby 47 , Ian Sharp 18  Rob Wilson 8 .
A ravishing afternoon tea was provided by the ladies of Cadnam CC.
Hampshire had an opening partnership of 67 with Blackey hitting 40 and R.Kyte 54 retired. Tony Wharton batted solidly for 44 and Blunden hit up 46.
The absolute highlight of the day was after Wharton was run out was the appearance of Queen Elizabeth herself, carrying the flag, but not wearing her high heels. Wilson bowled to her and she had the temerity to reverse sweep Wilson for three runs and was not out at the end.
Hampshire needed 26 off the last 2 overs and only maned 12 runs, so a win by 14 runs to Victoria, our 2nd win out of four games.
After match Dinner was a BBQ at a cost of a one pound donation.
Man of Match was Gary Ashby and R.Kyte for Hampshire.
At 9pm we left for Amesbury Travel Lodge and have a rest day tomorrow after two consecutive days of cricket
