Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI v Old Owens 2nd XI on Sat 30 Apr 2011 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won

Match report On a fine but windy day at Leventhorpe, Sawbridgeworth 3rd's won the toss and decided to have a bowl.

James Wair opened with a fine spell of 7 overs 0 for 20 runs, however, on a different day and with a catch or 2 held James could easily have had 2 or 3 wickets.

James Gostling was the other opening bowler and again bowled well, swinging the ball with the winds help to great effect, James ended up bowling 14 overs 2 for 46.

The two other outstanding bowling performances came from Nick Dale, who bowled with great control, and ended up with figures of 7 overs 3 for 16, and 13 year old Ben Waring who figures were 9.4 overs 3 for 27 and bowled with great maturity.

145 was set for Sawbo to chase, and with the ethic of giving youth a chance we opened the batting with Bren and Kev. Bren smashed to 4,s in the first over and Kev settled in for the long haul. The bowling improved and runs were hard to come by, however, with an opening partnership of 56 the guys had done a great job of getting us started.

Kev was out first for a hard worked 19, followed by Ross Moorley, who looked good for his 10 before being trapped LBW.

Ian Bowler went for 0 and then Bren went for a great 60, at this point we were 96 for 4, and maybe just starting to wobble a little, however, Fahd and Charlie Mann saw us home with a very important 23 not out from Fahd and 22 not out from Charlie.
