STOOLBALL: Inclement weather saw Robertsbridge Stoolball Club’s home Ladies fixture against Icklesham last Tuesday be postponed but the Mixed side did play at Civil Service on Thursday[8th]. The Bridge were put into bat with Ian Kitson[47] and Penny Clark[10] sharing a first wicket partnership of 51 before Penny was caught and Jacqui Kuhler was bowled the very next ball. Ian was caught with 68 on the board and just one run later Lisa Fifield[6] was run out which bought skipper JJ Boast[115n.o.] and Lou Taylor[17n.o.] together to see out the 12 overs and take us to a reasonable 206-4. The hosts lost their first wicket on 17 when JJ caught Dave D[12] off the bowling of Ian[1-6] but a second wicket partnership of 95 between Donna[34] and Neil C[75 retired injured] steadied the innings and when Ben[4] was caught by JJ from the bowling of Jacqui[1-26] the hosts were on 117 but Neil B[67n.o.] joined Donna to share a 69 partnership before Donna was run out. The hosts were in sight of victory when Zoe[9n.o.] joined Neil to finish their 12 overs on 214-3 and an 8 run win. The Mixed are at home to Scorpions on Tuesday[20th] and again on Thursday[22nd] to Catsfield with both matches starting at 7p.m.
