Exiles suffered their first defeat of the 2012 season in the local derby against Agricola.
It was tough in the field as Agricola amassed 212/4 from 40 overs, and in response Exiles were soon in trouble at 13/3. Some decent middle order batting from debutant Adam Wedlock (35), skipper John Tither (43), Andy Wingfield (26) and Marcin Zieleniewski (24no) at least took the Exiles to a respectable 167 all out, and a 45 run defeat.
