GCA PLATE FINAL 2016
Winners 2mi Wanderers CC
The 2016 domestic club season ended in fine style at KGV with a hard-fought victory by just 2 wickets for 2mi Wanderers over Canon Irregulars in the GCA Cup Plate for the two losing semi-finalists.
Wanderers were looking in some trouble at 170 for 8, chasing a target of 215 in 50 overs, but an unbroken 9th wicket partnership of 48 in under 7 overs between man of the match Pierre Moody (33 not out) and John Purdy (16 not out) saw their side home with 22 balls to spare.
Earlier, Irregulars posted a decent 215 for 9 in their 50 overs after winning the toss. The innings was built on an opening partnership of 104 in 25 overs between Gordon Irish (66) and Jack Byrne (45). Useful contributions in the teens from Kiran Berry, Rob Byrne and Alec Bailey saw them progress to 172 for 2 with 11 overs remaining but Wanderers hit back with a flurry of wickets and restricted the score to 215. Moody took 3 for 23 from his 10 overs, while Sam Hale (2 for 32) and Matt Stokes (1 for 28) also kept things very tight in their allotted overs.
In reply, Wanderers openers Owen Brock and Matt Stokes laid a solid foundation with 44 in 12 overs before Stokes was bowled by a beauty from Berry. James Wilkes-Green then hammered a short ball back to Rob Byrne who clung on to a fine catch, and when Tom Nightingale was stumped off Byrne for a steady 24, Wanderers were only halfway to their target with a lot of work to do. Nick Waldron and Alex Robin then both fell cheaply to Jack Byrne before Sam Hale joined Brock to steady the ship. The pair put on 35 before Hale fell lbw to Toby Smale for 14. Brock then edged one from Smale for a well-made and vital 74, and with Ryan Harris becoming Jack Byrne's third victim in a fine spell of 3 for 28 from his 10 overs, it was left to Moody and Purdy to open their shoulders and see their side home in an excellent game of cricket played in glorious late season weather.
