Reepham Tour 2012

The team before taking to the field for Damerham's innings

After a long period without one, Reepham CC went on a tour this year to face former Reepham player Richard Perry's team Damerham. The team headed down on Friday 22nd June to watch a 20-20 match between Hampshire and Kent, an exciting forerunner to the big game on Sunday which Kent won by 3 runs.

Saturday was spent in Bournemouth playing single wicket beach cricket, congratulations to Jamie for winning, and then a tight round of crazy golf that was jointly won by the junior Housams, who shot 42. The team pants went to Jon with his round of 52. The rest of the day was spent in the casino on the 2p machines, and then watching Damerham's Saturday game in the sun.

On Sunday the match was delayed an hour due to the wet conditions and was reduced to 30 overs a side. Reepham chose to bat and started well with a good partnership from John and Slam, who went on reach 41, and Sam then scored 50 with a towering 6, leading Reepham to a total of 140. Despite 2 wickets in 2 balls for Ben, Reepham were unable to stop Damerham chasing the total down, and lost by two wickets. Regardless, the team all said they had a great time on tour, and hope to be able to go on another one next year!
