Match report Luke Edwards smashed the St Albans scoring record, as he hit 200, which included a 295 runs opening partnership with Matt Howeson (101). It could have been soo different, as he was dropped on 0, in only the 2nd over. This was one of 8 chances that OA's failed to take.

St Albans posted a massive 350 in 45 overs, which looked to have won the day.

OA's were never going to get anywhere near the target, but were not helped when new boy, Tahir Maqsood took twoo early wickets. Captain Jaffer Chaudrey also chipped in with an LBW.

The teenage sensation of Tim Fretter (18) and Adam Potter(15) both bowled well. Adam Potter having his first bowl in senior cricket returned with figures of 1-27 from his 5 allowed overs. Tim Fretter bowled fast and wild, but found an edge, which was smartly taken at the wicket by Matt Howeson. In his next over, he bolwed a bouncer, which the OA's bat was late playing and could only top edge to McKinlay.

However despite this, the run rate continued to rise, as Monty Hussain and a return of Maqsood kept the runs down. Hussain finshing with 2-44 and Tahir Maqsood 2-26.
