Inspirational skipper Ed Greening helped lead Old Ranwellians to victory in their final competitive match of the season with a stunning display in the field. Martians won the toss and after some deliberation reluctantly elected to bat, due to late arrivals.

Scoltock effected the first wicket, a run out, with a direct hit from distance following an ill advised 2nd run from the Martians opening pair. John and Karl built a solid partnership, John in particular taking a liking to Ford's bowling and swatted him about with impunity. Ford was to have his revenge however, as Hudson took an excellent catch to remove Martians' highest scorer.

Karl was next to go, as Greening burst into a rare sprint to take a high looping catch over his shoulder. Bowling the next over, Greening then proceeded to complete a hat trick, effectively ending all Martians' resistance with the bat. Hudson and Scoltock then combined to run out the dispirited Martians captain Graham. Eaton hit 3 boundaries in the first over to begin the Old Ranwellians innings with gusto, before falling to a poor shot.

Enter birthday boy Ford, who battered about the Martians' attack, scoring 34 runs entirely composed of boundaries. He fell attempting to end the match with a 6, but was instead caught on the long on boundary. Instead it was left to Hudson to polish off the run chase, who had supported Ford well for a decent knock of 25*.

Thanks to Martians for a game played in the right spirit, and wish them well for next season.
