Edwardstone CC- Record breaking end to the season –Sam Chapman scores 210
Edwardstone CC have just finished the 2017 season in record breaking form. The club was promoted to Division 2 of the Hunts County league and had hopes of remaining in the league and gaining a solid mid table position.
The season went much better than this and following our last match of the season v Cavendish the team were in second place in the league. As always with a mix of youth and experience the side managed to beat every team in the league at least once and team members produced match winning performances on a regular basis.
The last match of the season saw Sam Chapman record the first double century by an Edwardstone player with great back up from club skipper Jack Clark who scored 63 in what was a club record batting partnership. Tom and Sam Whymark then bowled beautifully to put the opposition under pressure and end the season in match winning form. Sam Whymark recorded his second hat trick of the season which is a great achievement.
We would like to thank all those who have supported the club during the season. As always a special mention goes to Ray Gibbons for producing one of the best wickets in the league and to the team of coaches, Tim Beven, Adrian Gooderham, Barry Dakers who run our juniors training sessions. 4 more players from this group of players made their senior debuts this year. Club Chairman Charlie Patridge should also be thanked for guiding the club with all his years experience of cricket in Suffolk.
Lastly thanks to the group of players who have enabled us to achieve this great result in the league. Over 30 players were used in games this year all making great contributions to our village club.
We look forward to doing it all again in 2018.
