Ian Hume Trophy retained by St Peter's
St Peter's won a hard-fought match today at Westminster (the first neutral venue in the 25 year history of the fixture). They batted first and made 184 all out, with good bowling from Mikey Roy (3 wickets) and George FitzRoy (2 wickets), great catching by Henry Hayes, and a wonderful runout by Archie Hammond to encapsulate a strong performance in the field. Eton's reply was centred round another gritty performance from Elliott Charles (32), but we couldn't build the partnerships required and despite some late runs from Mikey Roy (37) and James Tugwell (17) we were all out for 134. This was a performance that clearly showed the strengths and weaknesses of the touring party, and gives us much to build on.
