Ken Block Trophy
Superstars arrived at LSE's Berrylands ground on a warm, sunny day in August looking forward to a good game and nice tea. In a shock move Barry won the toss and elected to bat on the wicket well known as a batting heaven.
Paul Gaught and Matt Conway opened the batting and after Paul edged the first ball through the vacant slip area both batted well. Superstars batted at a good rate throughout with Owen Draper, a guest from Energy Exiles, joining Paul in a big stand for the 4th wicket (of around 130). Simon Gundry joined Paul who delighted the crowd by bringing his 100 up with a six over the long on fielder. With the heat taking effect the last few overs were a struggle by Paul ended on 115 not out and Superstars made 248 in their 40 overs.
Andy Wingfield (another Exiles guest) opened the bowling with Simon and although both bowled well and kept the runs down LSE were still 0 wickets down. It seemed an unlikely target at roughly 75-0 in the 19th over but there were nerves that the LSE could well dampen celebrations. Luckily it was clearly Paul's day as he held a catch on the mid wicket boundary that started a mini-collapse. In the end Superstars were comfortable victors.
Paul's 115 not out was at the time (and still is at the time of writing) the 3rd highest individual score in the club's history and the highest by a regular player.
