Eastwood CC Touring Party made the trip to Bagborough CC today looking for a second win of the weekend. Skipper Patel asked the home side to bat and they amassed a measly 265/8 in their 40 overs. Eastwood never looked like chasing it down as wickets fell regularly and they were behind the rate almost from the off. However, a magnificent century from Bill Lovatt (116), ably supported by Matt Feather (39) meant the opposition started to panic. Sadly it wasn’t enough as Eastwood slipped to a 32 run defeat, for the loss of 9 wickets.
