Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Won

Match report On a pleasant, springlike morning, Sporting Alfas CC got their 2008
season underway against regular rivals La Manga CC.

Despite a new wicket (laid with considerable help from many of the
club's members during the close season) to contend with, the home side
won the toss and didn't hesitate in choosing to bat first.

S.Ali and G.Howe made the ideal start, opening the season with a
century stand for the first wicket, before Ali fell to the bowling of
Dert for 64.

Howe promptly completed his own half century before retiring not out
on 52 and further contributions from Pennick, Muñoz, and Mudasa helped
the home side reach a challenging 268 for 8.

In reply, La Manga lost regular wickets with Hancock scoring 50 with
N.Brooke and Lobb making useful contributions in a game that SACC were
always in control of and eventually won by 54 runs.

For SACC, Wasim 39-3 and Crompton 56-2 started the season in good form.

Many thanks to La Manga for providing the opposition on a very good
day's cricket.
