Old Ranwellians v Tower Hamlets College  

Monday 2 August 2010, Victoria Park

Tower Hamlets College won by 74 runs

Old Ranwellians won the toss and chose to field first

Tower Hamlets College: 168 for 7 in 15.4 overs
Greening 2-50
Ford 2-38

Old Ranwellians: 94 for 6 in 16 overs
Ford 36
Price 15

Old Ranwellians meekly gave up any hopes of winning Division 3 with an abysmal all round performance on Monday night.

A terrible first over from skipper Greening set the tone as the belligerant THC openers began their onslaught. Poor bowling coninued to dominate, punctuated by even worse fielding.

There were some bright points for Old Ranwellians, with the occasional delicious delivery from Greening and Ford in particular, who claimed 2 wickets apiece. Eaton, Scoltock and Field (his first, and hopefully not last, in competitive cricket) were also amongst the wickets, which fell reglarly before a specacular tail wag for the 7th wicket for 40 priceless runs turned the contest on its head, and allowed THC to set an imposing target of 168.

Old Ranwellians, as ever, struggled to find the boundary with the regularity required to case down such a large target. Altough the running between the wickets was very good, it was never likely to accrue enough runs to worry TMC.

In the end only Ford and Price shone with the bat, making 36 and 15 respectively. And in fairness to the opposition, they were lively in the field, making very few mistakes, which coupled with their accurate pacy bowling, made Old Ranwellians even more difficult than it was.

They are very worthy champions, easily the best side we've faced in this division, and have our congratulations
