Hertford 4th XI v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 4th XI on Sat 01 May 2010 at 1:00
Match was Drawn

Match report On a bright and breezy day, Sawbo won the toss and on a drying wicket decided to have a bowl. This payed dividends almost straight as very good bowling from Dan Reynolds and Mike Burson, and some top stuff in the field helped reduce the home side to 35-5. Next came a period where the batsmen decided just to hit out which appeared to be working for them, until some good tight bowling from Gary Parish and Chris Pask helped us get back on top of the game and apart from a final spurt from the home team we bowled them out for 178.

In reply, we started very slowly and unfortunately lost some early wickets that did hamper our chase. A fine innings from Cass Edwards was the highlight however he was unlucky to fall one short of what would have been a good 50, he was supported well by Gary Parish (25) who was very unlucky to get out due to the bowl dribbling back onto his stumps after hitting his pads. Wickets continued to fall at regular intervals and we suddenly looked in danger of losing. Until a fantastic rear guard action from Mike Burson and Rob Hibbs managed to secure the draw.

Very positive start to the new season and hopefully we can build on this to push us forward.
