Staff Takeover: Rounders Competition

Townends entered a team in Lupton Fawcett’s annual rounders tournament in July. We were in a tough group against teams from Sagars, Ardents, BHP and Deloitte. We managed to beat all but Sagars, so progressed out of group stages as runners up. Already an improvement on previous year’s sporting attempts!
In the quarter finals we faced JWP Creers, and managed to beat them 5-2 (we think, we were too excited!). Onto the semi-finals we went, and faced Deloitte’s other team. This was a close game, but we managed to win by 1 rounder putting us through the FINAL!
In the final we were faced with Garbutt and Elliot, who were reigning Champions and not showing any signs of losing their title. They chose to bat first and came away with 5 rounders as the target to beat. Townends teamwork was excellent, managing to stop a lot of rounders, much to the annoyance of our opposition. We knew we had 5 to beat, and with 2 balls left, the score was 5 all. Lewis stepped up to bat and hit an amazing shot, and secured the win. I had the last ball, and although we had the victory in the bag, we completed the innings – with another rounder, securing a 7-5 victory, putting us through to the FINAL!
Townends are CHAMPIONS!
Can I just say thank you to everyone that played. The teamwork, resilience, and sheer effort put in during rain, slipping and some overly competitive opponents was amazing. Guess we will need to enter a team next year to defend our title…
