25th August 2018 vs East & West Hendred (away) – Won by 45 runs.

With three games left & five teams in a relegation battle this was definitely the proverbial six pointer. With the toss won and batting on a good pitch at 101-2 Westcott looked in command and a big score was on the cards, but…. as has happened too many times this season a middle order collapse ensued and we were 131-8. Hendred were confident of finishing the lower order off with some attacking fields but ” cometh the hour, cometh the Chairman” Phil Bateman (below) with a swashbuckling 35 put on an unbeaten 45 with Tom Young to take us to a competitive 175.With the Westcott tails up and confidence high it was left to Rehmam & Ali  to take the new ball and this they did with relish and reduced the opposition to eight down with only 40 on the scoreboard, although a late rally gave Hendred some pride it was a top class fielding and bowling performance that leaves Westcott one win from safety.
