Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI v Bayford and Hertford 2nd XI on Sat 14 May 2011 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won

Match report Just for a change, it was a cold and windy day at Leventhorpe, as we prepared to take on Bayford and Hertford.

I won the toss and decided to bowl first.

As is the norm these days the younger bowlers bowled extremely well on a pitch that is a batsmen's paradise and an outfield that was like glass.

James Gostling opened the bowling and bowled his first 7 overs for 16 runs and was unlucky not to pick up a wicket.

Nick Dale opened from the other end and bowled with a fair amount of pace and bounce he made the first breakthrough trapping their opening batsman LBW.

James Wair replaced James Gostling and with his first ball had their opener caught behind by Charlie Mann. James Wair bowled with good accuracy and finished with figures of 7 overs 1 for 29.

Ben Waring replaced James Wair and bowled really well to finish with figures of 9 overs 0 for 39, these figures do not represent how well he bowled.

James Gostling returned for another spell and bowled well, ending with figures of 14 overs 2 for 38.

Nick Dale ended with 12 overs 2 for 56.

Bayford and Hertford ended on 218 all out.

Well what can you say about our chase. It has to be a club record for the 3rd XI 221 for 0. 118 to Mike Burson and 85 To Kevin Elkins dominated the bowling attack, hitting the ball hard from the off and pushing us past the total with 6 overs left.

Another good win for us which takes us to 2nd in the league at this early stage.
