Grayshott batting first scored 144 for 3 beat Farnham 88 for 8.
A great all-round team performance saw the Foxes again show what they can be capable of when they get it right together.
Batting first, the top 6 for the foxes put the Farnham bowling to the sword and scored at 9 an over. Special mentions to the Max's strong 28 runs and Toby's opening 20 which set the tone for the batting display. The lower order then toughed things out and made sure the runs continued to tick over by running their singles well and dispatching the bad balls when they could.
Having lost from this position before, the foxes were made well aware they needed to be sharp in the field from the first ball to the last. And they were! The bowling was brisk and accurate from the opening sets of bowlers supported well by the fielders stopping any easy singles adding to the scoreboard pressure. The middle of the innings was then well controlled by Ryan, Jack and Josh with accurate bowling that the Farnham players struggled to get away. With more quicker bowlers still available the Foxes now started to pick up the wickets they deserved with special mention to Xabi for a very sharp caught and bowled off his own bowling and a simply superb piece of cricket from Toby Waddell in running out a Farnham batsman with very quick pick up and direct hit from distance.
A great all round team performance from everyone with all the players contributing to the victory with all the players having a bowl and Charlie keeping wicket well.
