Good afternoon all
Win number 5 yesterday against Twinstead away.
The ground was lovely, the weather was sunny but they unfortunately didn't have a
full team and had a couple of youngsters and we won by 159 runs!
The highest scorer for them was Dan Commons who was playing for them after finding out
he was number 11 for us. 
Superted's winning streak is up to 5 now but looking for revenge against
Wickham St Paul, away next week, will bring the biggest challenge yet.
The scores and table are attached. Geoff is still top of the leaderboard - just.
