Sunday 27th June – Surrey Smash It Central Group – Walton-on-Thames Hosting
Festival Style pairs cricket. Teams of 8 and clubs play everyone in their group on 1 day. 16 over matches. Walton made a great weather call despite all the doom and gloom on the weather apps and we managed a dry afternoon until the last over.
Effingham Team: Erica, Emma, Beth, Sophie, Olivia, Georgie, Non and Niahm. A big welcome to Non and Niahm who join the team for the first time. A simplified scoring system, which included 2 points per run, and a run total per pair (smash) which is compared with the opposition pair to add additional points to the final score. This made for an interesting game and Pat managed to keep a handle on the scores for her scoring debut with some help from the Dads. Thanks to Lionel for umpiring all the matches.

Monday 19th July – Women and Gils Friendly match with fundraising BBQ
It was a hot July evening and with only 12 girls and 2 ladies we had to recruit some of the Dads to get the match off the ground. The Dads looked very fetching in pink and Sophie and Olivia nobly offered to play for the “other side”
The Girls batted first with a steady flow of runs and top scoring pair Georgie / Emily notching up an impressive 35 runs. They finished with a gross score of 89 runs and with the loss of 7 wickets a nett score of 48 runs. Good to see some of the Dads bowling against their daughters!
The Oldies (+ Sophie and Olivia!) then came into bat with some impressive pair scores of 27 for Diana / Doug, 23 each for Tim / Annabel and Emma / Tom. Top scoring pair were Gary and Chris with 45 runs including a 6 from Gary. They finished with a gross score of 127 and with the loss of 3 wickets a nett score of 112.
After much consideration, some penalties for the oldies (ill-fitting shirts, Gary’s too flamboyant 6, deductions for age and experience etc) the Girls were awarded the larger of the chocolate bar selection as prizes.
A very sociable BBQ followed with bar and BBQ takings of £241. Thanks to everyone who turned up to take part, the Dads for stepping in at short notice, Lionel for umpiring and scoring, Beth on the bar and Richard and Leanne on the BBQ.
