The “Future” scored 134 for seven, Martin Cuthbert top scoring with 46, aided by Josh Franklin-Mann and Dan Taylor.
In reply, Michael Hugman and Dick Steward both scored 17, but despite brisk scores of 18, 14 and 18 not out by Steve Warner, David Allum and Richard Pierce-Saunderson respectively, the “Present” were never in the hunt, falling 33 short. A total of £570 was raised on the day to be donated to the charity.
