Keelings vs Sedlescombe Final Result

Kev Henry, Edward, Arthur Tom, Josh (injured Captain), Simon
Jacob Schiele, Jim, Paul, Zac (man of match)
Missing: Pol, Ted
The final score was Sedlescombe 201 for 7, Keelings 145 all out. A little better than the 210-145 reported earlier. Zac was the man of the match being the last man standing with 39 not out and he took two wickets. Paul made a stunning caught and bowled with a dive against their opening batsman. History was made by Polly the first ever female on the Keeling side who opened and scored 15 and more history from Jacob, the first German to have played for us.

The games continued later at the Brick Wall where Van gave a great performance of Bohemian Rhapsody accompanied by Kev. We played that game in the hotel garden but I think we are are welcome back. There was more singing and dancing back at Jacobs round the pool and on the patio where Van and Kev did an encore. I did not witness much at the pool. Can't wait for next time, George!

Thanks to Ruth for photos and real time reporting. Apologies from George for dodgy score book when Keelings started batting.

Important message from Captain Josh

Your editor received a statement from the captain:

With Jacob our new (non-Seitz) German recruit, the Keeling XI is venturing into unfounded uncharted territory, but the chair of selectors (JS Keeling) is confident that the young lad will perform in this high pressure, high intensity sporting event - Jacob’s been doing his summer fitness, have you?

I trust everyone has been oiling their bats and turning their arms over in the nets all summer long and that England's World Cup performance has inspired on all fronts. Hope to see you all for the vital pre-game net (and pint) on the morning of the 25th and looking forward to our celebratory beers at George’s dinner!
