Charterhouse Match

This match was played at Godalming, July 24th, and resulted in their favour by 78 runs:- They won the toss and went in. Powell and Dames were not separated until 115 was up, the former making 66 the latter 44. After lunch they could make no stand against Wetton and Sandwith, the former bowling slow underhand, the latter ripping fast round; and the innings closed for 147.- On our going to the wickets Higgins batter very steadily, and when he was partnered with Benbow it looked as though we had some chance, but in attempting a short run the latter was given out – a decision which failed to give general satisfaction – and Higgins was shortly after stumped, and the innings closed for 69. We therefore had to follow on and sent Wetton and Sandwith to the wickets, the latter played very steadily for 16, while Dale, Ryde, Benbow and Bain raised the total to 88 for the loss of nine wickets.

Cricket

Our prospects for the Cricket season of 1880 were not bright, as it was understood that only F.C. Ryde (T.B.), the eleventh man of last season, would be here, and that upon him would devolve the arduous task of giving away ten ‘pinks’. Benbow however came back, but did not retain the captaincy, and Sandwith also played for us. Our first match was against ‘Old Haileyburians’ when we fell utterly to pieces, but improved considerably before meeting M.C.C. and Gr: and were able to make a good match of it. The results of the succeeding matches will show that the Eleven eventually came up to the usual average.

If there had been more time, in all probability we should have won, as Boyd and Hemsley were well set, and would not have been run out, had they not been pressed for runs. These two, & Abernethy & Wilks played well for us, Reece, though very small, played a very plucky innings for the Q.S.S.

The Charterhouse Match

This annual match took place this year at Charterhouse on July 21st, and was a most miserable failure. We won the toss, & Hemsley unfortunately put them in, & they succeeded in making 330 before they were all out. We then went in, when the light has changed, and could only make 50, and in the second innings 25 for five wickets.

We were unquestionably the better Eleven, but Wilks, out best bowler, ‘seemed off the spot’; & everything against us. Had we gone in first, we should have very likely made the 330 & they the 50. For further details see the Cricket Ledger.
