three times before, in 1983, 1884 and 1995) but we won our last 7 matches.
4 matches cancelled by the opposition and 6 matches lost to the weather (10 cancellations is a record)
35 players (34 last year), of whom 8 played only 1 game (8 last year).
28 players bowled (27).
C.Macadam 1000 runs (but still poised tantalisingly on 49 wickets)
P.Barker 1500 runs
K.Powell 3500 runs (and catching D.Rooke for the position of second highest run scorer)
S.Powell 100 matches
Records achieved this year:
Leading run scorer: G.Fergusson 209 runs.
Leading wicket taker: P.Reed 16 wickets.
Only 39 catches taken this year (39 last year)

Thanks go to John Ogle for an excellent fixture list, to Ralph Hammond for organising the teams so efficiently and to Leathea Stephenson for the most excellent teas for our Sunday games.
