Gidea Park & Romford Cricket Club Sunday A XI v Beconsfield on Sun 23 May 2004 at
Gidea Park & Romford Cricket Club Won GP&R won by 6 wickets

Match report GP&R eased through into the 4th Round of the Cockspur Cup, the National Club Cup, with a little help from their opponents Beaconsfield. Beaconsfield misread the match conditions and thought the innings was 50 overs long and not 45 as is the case. The batsmen at the crease after the completion of 45 overs were staggered when the umpires removed thee bails and called time.
This should not detract from a good bowling and fielding performance by our lads. Bazza got things underway with a brilliant catch off Andy Berry to take the first wicket and despite good knocks from Lynch and Alikhan, the visitors could only manage 185 for 5 with the innings closing in the aforementioned farcical situation.
In reply Bazza continued his superb form from the previous day scoring 39 out of an opening stand of49 with Mel. After Mel was caught for 19 an excellent stand of 93 between Winnie and James Redwood set up victory. Winnie scored 55 and Redders moving from the defensive mode of the previous day to the aggressor made an accomplished 54 not out.
A good job well done!
