Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Cup XI v Hornchurch on Sun 09 May 2010 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 2 wickets

Match report A majestic unbeaten century by Rob Sanders proved to no avail as Sawbridgeworth made an early exit from the Conference Cup on Sunday.

Coming in the seventh over when Charlie Rudkin was caught behind, the 17-year-old produced a high-class innings as he reached three figures for the first time in a competitive match for Town Fields club.

He featured in a second wicket stand of 87 with Wilson, who scored his first half-century of the season (81 balls, seven fours and a six) before Sanders gave his only chance, when he was dropped at slip on 27 by Liam Bones.

Joe Rudkin marked his first appearance of the season with scoring 27 off 37 balls and when he played on to Burd, Sawbo had reached 155-3 after 35.1 overs.

Sanders brought up his fifty off 82 balls but in a stunning passage of play needed only a further 20 to reach three figures, which included two sixes and two fours from Gordon's last over.

His dominant play meant the home side managed to score 88 runs from the last 10 overs, with Sanders finishing unbeaten on 110, having struck 12 fours and four sixes.

Chris Howard was rewarded for a fiery opening spell, taking two wickets in his first three overs. He bowled the Hornchurch skipper for a third ball duck and also removed Gordon to a smart slip catch by Wilson.

Michael Bones was joined by Jamie Sorrell and the pair rebuilt the Hornchurch reply as the teenage duo added 126 for the third wicket in 134 balls.

Sorrell (52 off 73 balls) fell to a low catch by Purnell two balls after bringing up his 50 off the bowling of Joe Rudkin, who also dismissed Liam Bones and Warren in successive deliveries as Hornchurch had slumped to 168-5 after 31 overs.

The match was back in the balance but Michael Bones and Burd added 49 in just six overs but the former was eventually dismissed for 115 (109 balls, 15 fours and a six) to a superb juggled catch by Edwards, who was rewarded for an outstanding performance behind the stumps.

Charlie Rudkin struck twice in three balls to leave Hornchurch on 229-8 but Burd settled the contest with two towering sixes to finish on 34* off 27 balls.
