Sundays Game vs WHITCHURCH WAYFARERS.

Guru in control @ Whitchurch. - Richards supporting the duck hat

A hot day greeted the Green Caps on arrival at Whitchurch where Hythe were hoping to gain revenge for last seasons defeat.

Tom Richards was asked to captain the side and as you can see - mates come first in the pecking order. Hythe posted 251 for 7 thanks to two important partnerships - 64 for the 1st between Jonjo and Mike Edwards then 134 for the 6th between The Guru and Pagey.

Whitchurch who were much weaker than last year - posted 199 for 8 in reply thanks to an exciting innings from D.Vernon. Good game and great way to get the tour started - well done Tom

Mondays Game vs MEHENIOT & LOOE

289 - Not surprising with Crouchey reading the paper whilst fielding in the boundary

Day two and off into Cornwall and to a new fixture - Menheniot & Looe. Sam Page captained the side and his first duty - the toss which was decided on who could drink a pint of guiness the quickest (something young Pags had not tried before). Needless to say Hythe lost the toss and into the field we went for 2 hours of caining. If you think we have a slope at Hythe come and see this one.

Menheniot posted 289 for 7 with all the Hythe bowlers suffering 6 an over or more. In reply Hythe made a good chase of it 254 for 6 and the difference between the two sides - M&L chased the balls and stopped the balls around the boundary. Our lads too hung over didn't but a decent effort

Toss Won by : Menheniot - on who drunk a guiness the fastest

Tuesdays Game vs LANHYDROCK

Bellie giving advise to Kev James between Innings

Day 3 and game of the tour. Hythe travelled upto the scenic setting of Lanhydrock and were made welcome from the off. Skipper Luke Blackwell won the toss and elected to bat first batted first. A small shower before the start of play certainly made like a little tricky for Kev James & Ewan Bell at the begining but they ended up adding 51 for the 1st wicket. Hythe posted 206 for 8 thanks largely to a 92 run partnership between the Guru and Pagey - both players hitting fifties.

Lanhydroch at drinks looked to be heading for as tight finish - then when C.Rogers has made 26* he had to go home for his tea and retired. Luke still hadn't used his secret weapon as Tinky James came on to take 5 wickets including a great diving caught &bowled off the last ball to win the game. Great day great people.

Wednesdays Game vs CALLINGTON

 

What a shame - The fixture everyone was looking forward too - Hythe got to the ground with merky skys above. Skipper Tom Huxley won the toss and chose to bat first. The down came the rain and then more rain - game abandoned without a ball being bowled.

RESULT : Match Rained Off

Thursdays Game vs WIMBOURNE.

 

TIME GAME

Off home and the final game of the tour saw the Green Caps stop at Wimbourne for a 'Time Game' . Harry Smith captained the side and elected to bat first against a side made up with Dorset over 50 players. Matt Howe dropped himself for the game was re enstated by his mates and he proceeded to score an unbeaten 100. One of the Wimbourne chaps came off injured and Jonjo swooped to replace him and take on his Hythe team mates.

Hythe posted 221 for 5 after Pagey insisted we declared at 170 because they were never going to get close. But Wimbourne in reply were always ahead of the run rate and with Jonjo hitting a very good 45 the home side finished just 4 runs short in a drawn game. A very good game to end the tour
