great start with a blistering 40 off just 35 balls and Max Dymoke finished off
the innings with a 4 off the last ball bring up his 50 at the same time.

Palmer off the bowling of Charlie Holloway. Holloway was indeed the pick of the
bowlers who ended up with remarkable figures of 5 wickets for just 2 runs in

season and winning the County Cup is just what they deserve. If they keep
working hard then they should have more success year in the National Rounds”.
