Mercer & Hole take part in Longmores Solicitor’s Cricket Tournament
A team from Mercer & Hole took part in a cricket tournament organised by Longmores Solicitors last night, 15 July.
Longmores hosted the event and welcomed 7-a-side teams from both Mercer & Hole and Crabtree Property Management at an idyllic cricket ground in the village of Hertingfordbury.
First up, Mercer & Hole went into bat against Crabtree Property Management. Peter Godfrey Evans made a good start for the team, opening the batting and retiring at 20 runs. Fellow partner, Ross Lane also made a good impression retiring with 16 runs. The team’s young ringer, Alfie Bigg added 7 runs to the tally of 68 runs from 6 overs. Crabtree Property Management put in an impressive performance and took the game, scoring 69 runs in just four overs.
The team’s next game against Longmores Solicitors was a tighter match. Peter Godfrey-Evans made the decision to chase and let the hosts bat first. Daniel McCloskey made a particularly good show of bowling. With a target of 73 runs to beat, Mercer & Hole looked like they might take victory, with great performances from Chris Sweeting, who retired with 20 runs, joined by Gary Picker and Chris Dennell, who both accomplished 15 runs before retiring. The firm’s wicket keeper, Ross Lane, also added 4 runs to the total but in the end the team fell just short of the target with 71 runs.
Longmores Solicitors met Crabtree Property Management in the final and the hosts were repaid for their excellent hospitality winning the match.
The three teams then enjoyed refreshments together in the quintessentially British, summer’s evening setting.
Mercer & Hole thank Longmores Solicitors for a well organised event, their unfailing sportsmanship and their kind hospitality.
