Sky beat Vallance Bow by 76 runs
Sky: 149 for 4 in 15 overs
Rizwan 44 n.o.
Vallance Bow: 73 for 7 in 10 overs
Sky's season ended on a blustery evening at Victoria Park with a
convincing victory over fellow Div 1 runner up contenders Vallance Bow.
After having only lost one league match in the entire season the lads
were disappointed that firstly points were not carried forward from the 1st
phase as in previous years (and that this was not conveyed to teams until
after the 1st round had completed, thereby rendering almost all 1st round
games meaningless for the stronger teams) and secondly, that this led to the
entire league campaign boiling down, in effect to a one off 'cup type' match
that Goodmayes won comfortably.
Anyway, I leave all that for the committee to ponder on in the close
season. Finally, due credit to Goodmayes for doing the double, they deserve
their success and played good cricket at the right times to ensure it.
Rest assured, Sky will be back next year and keen to improve again, as
is our aim every year. My thanks to all the lads for their great efforts and
commitment this season.
