Bob Cope's report on the match: The match that afternoon was a great advert for Village cricket - it was played in the right spirit, friendly and competitive and with a fair result at the end. After over 5 hours of play, the match ended in a draw!!
To non-cricketers, not having a winner after such a long contest must sound crazy, but it was an exciting match enjoyed by both sides. Our shirts were very much admired by the opposition, who were the Exeter University side, known as the Erratics. They batted first and scored 167 for 8 from 45 overs. In reply, we were 152 for 9 from 38 overs. At the start of the last over, we needed 16 to win, but their bowler managed a rare feat in getting a hat-trick with his first 3 balls and we were left to see out the last 3 balls to secure the draw.
