A win at last ! Grannies beat the Dusters by 16 runs.

8th June 2017

The Grannies set the Dusters a target of 164 on the road that is the College track and then unleashed 'the best Grannies bowling attack I've ever played with' to quote skipper Sykes. He hasn't played much Grannies cricket.

22nd May 2016: Sunshine all morning and then right on cue the heavens opened on Canterbury at 2 o'clock. A couple of hours later we managed to sneak in a quick 25over game with the Grannies batting against some tasty bowling in the rain and the dark. The Stragglers set us a total of 179 to win and we managed 143/1 but not for want of trying. A moral draw was the considered opinion, of the Grannies in the gloom.
