Match report Catches do actually win matches....

Harefield lost the toss and were unsurprisingly asked to bat on a soft green pitch partenered by a slow outfield.
Chris Lee put the bad balls away but there were few other scoring opportunites. The middle order cheaply with 4 to 7 departing for a total of 6 runs between them.
At 70 for 6 Harefield we in real trouble until some clean hitting from Hannes Verwey, supported by Ross Marsh and then Jordan McCleod, saw Harefield through to 149 all out in the 52nd over.

Hannes and Ross then started off the Bagshot innings with the new ball and both bowled tight spells of 1-16 and 1-11 respectively. Jordan McCleod then entered the fray and quickly cleaned up the Bagshot skipper by yet again shaping the ball towards slip cordon. Simon Ogden then took another wicket. tempting the batsmen into a big heave wchich saw a tough catch taken at 1st slip.

Bagshot were still looking favourites with two young batsmen going well at the crease, that was until Harefield looked to Chris Lee for the 4th bowling change. Doggy struck with his very first ball to clean up the destructive left hander and shortly afterwards accounted for Bagshot top scorer, Fletcher when he top edged a short one over the keepers head. Three Harefield fielders converged on the catch but the ball always looked favourite, that was until Ross March produced the catch of the season with a full length diving effort whilst also avoiding colliding with the other two fielders.

Ryan Finch chose to set the trap for the short wide ball down the leg side and it worked perfectly when the Bagshot number 7 smashed the ball to Doggy at square leg, another fine snaffle and Harefield were sniffing a 25 point guzzle. The tail was wrapped up by Doggy with one caught behind and then clean bowling the number 11.

25 points for an absolutely fantastic performance by the 3's. 8 catches taken with none dropped, a brilliant 43 from Hannes Verwey and Doggy finishing with 4-12 from 7 at then end.
