3rd XI vs Osterley 4s - 'A Game Too Far ...?'

Last Saturday saw us take our excellent run of form and results to second-placed Osterley in a crunch match.  This run had seen us impressively climb from second bottom to third in seven weeks and included six wins and a winning draw in that time.  Before play we were just six points behind our opponents and spirits were high that we could pull off another win.  The long drive to 'almost Heathrow' and being under the flight path of constant landing planes did not dampen these…
