Herriard II v Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club 4th XI on Sat 01 Jun 2013 at 2.00
Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club Won 4 wickets

Match report First match at this new ground. Beautiful surroundings with gliders overflying all afternoon in counterpoint to the Hell's Angels bikes. Anyway back to the cricket. The skipper lost the toss again, but had he won it he would have inserted Herriard. A good opening spell by debutant Ethan Sharpe and Scott Bryant brought a wicket for Ethan. The ball was keeping low occasionally and caused the keeper problems. First change bowler Tommy Holmes bowled accurately and produced from his spell 2 for 12 from 6 overs. Tim Heath was replaced by Farooq another bowler who was determined not to give runs away, finishing with a spectular catch from Tim at point, figures of 1 for 20 off 7. James Symmonds produced some interesting bowling and managed to get one plum LBW and another to play on, finishing with 2 for 22. Back came on Ethan and Scott cunningly swapping ends and they tidied the innings up with Scott finishing with 3 for 26 and Ethan 2 for 22. A good alround performance which was certianly helped by excellent fielding by all.

After a really good tea in an excellent pavillion, Jenny and Rob opened. It looked easy for Jenny as she plundered their mature opener for 5 fours and it looked like an opening stand of 50 was beckoning, but Rob top edged one and was caught for 13. In came Simon who stayed around before being decieved by a bit of spin. Farooq and Jenny were looking good when Jenny picked the wrong ball to sweep and was out for 34. James flayed the ball and after a couple of mammouth hits that fell short of the boundary was bowled by the returning opener bowler for 12. Now Scott and Farroq set about inching the team towards the target of 127 and looked like they were going to make it but fell 4 runs short. Scott out for 10. Tommy was out for a golden duck and finally Farooq and Tim saw us home. 23 points and the first win of teh season. Skipper did not bat or bowl!
