First the positives: stands of 55 by Phil K (29) and Richard (31) and 81 by Ciaran (26) & Denis (45). All the bowlers bowled well with Andy H (1 for 31), Richard (1 for 30), Adrian (2 for 47) in their 8 over spells and Den and Matthew each taking a wicket in their 4 over stints. 2 catches for Matthew including a caught and bowled and 1 for Adrian also caught and bowled. And a special mention and well done to Jessica for her fielding prowess and assistance during the latter 20 overs of the Bamville innings. Probably the youngest ever debutant for the Ives.
Unfortunately aided by some missed catches two Bamville batsmen contributed 150 runs of their eventual 239 for 7 and with being players short and despite the stands above and keeping up with the run rate for most of the innings Ives closed on 156 for 8.
