Old Ranwellians finally recorded their first competitive victory in their first round Cup match against League of Ordinary Gentlemen on a pleasant Monday evening. Old Ranwellians were buoyed by the return of two key batsmen, and were pleased to be put into bat first.

A steady, composed innings of 49* by Gordon laid the foundations for the innings, with attractive stroke play from Hudson (30), Culley (26) and Eaton (26) showing that class can prevail in the slap bang wallop format of the VPCCL. Old Ranwellians reached 160-4 in their allotted overs, with wickets for Dorn, Jinks and Hancock.

Following his batting heroics Culley then opened the bowling, ripping the heart out of the League of Ordinary Gentlemen's batting with 2 wickets in his first over.

Culley also contributed an excellent run out for his side. Ford (1-14) and Price (1-21) were also amongst the wickets, as only Scanlan provided any resistance by reaching 40. Eaton then came on to mop up the tail with his self patented Umar Gul-esque death bowling, claiming 2-9 off just 10 balls.

Old Ranwellians were pleased with finally recording a victory, hoping it will result in a change of fortunes for the side as they hope to challenge for the Division 4 title in the coming weeks, and perhaps cause a surprise in the next round of the Cup.
