Match report 

On a day when rain was forecast at some point and with the wicket looking a little green, St Michael's skipper Will Kingston won the toss and invited under strength visitors to bat first.

Malc Swann soon had the wicket of Antony Smith, caught by Danny York, but there were no further wickets for the next 12 overs with Antonio Montone and Rob Smith both batting well for their 14 and 21 respectively, despite both being put down with difficult chances. However with a change in bowlers came a change in fortunes as Ian Geddes and Tom Marlow both picked up a couple of wickets each as the visitor's the batting then subsided to 58 all out. Geddes ended up with 4 for 14, Simon Cannel getting 2 for 0 in 3 balls. Some good catches were taken eventually with York pouching 3.

Dale Harrison opened the reply with Cannell. After a couple of lusty fours, Cannel succumbed for 12, followed by 2 cheap wickets as both Tom Marlow and Brian Ahearn were run out in what could be best described as lapses in concentration. However with Will Kingston eager to finish before the rain set in, he hit a rapid, 18 ably assisted by Harrison's 23 as both batsmen tucked in to Smith wayward bowling. The win was finalised some 40 minutes before the heavens opened and washed out a number of games elsewhere.
