Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI Sunday v Netteswell and Burnt Mill on Sun 11 Sep 2011 at 1:00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 22 runs

Match report Ted Levey became the oldest Sawbridgeworth player to score a first team fifty at Town Fields on Sunday, but his efforts proved in vain as his side lost their first-ever meeting with Netteswell and Burnt Mill.

Levey achieved his feat at the age of 62 years 266 days in his first senior appearance since 2003, which means he has appeared for the 1st XI in each of the last six decades.

He batted throughout his side's reply, hitting eight fours and a six off 102 balls in his 139 minute stay at the crease, being last man out as Sawbo could only field 9 players.

The home side's line-up included three Harlow CC players, including their skipper Luke Heskett, who shared a fifth wicket stand of 107 in 104 balls with Levey. He struck 11 fours and two sixes in his 54-ball knock of 69 before being caught on the deep square boundary.

Harlow 'keeper Andre Riddell and Alex Syed were the only other players to reach double figures as Sawbo were dismissed with 13 balls to spare.

Earlier, Heskett had reduced the visitors to 45-3 before Gerry Linden, who had been dropped on 0, and Alan Burton led the recovery with an impressive fourth wicket stand of 148. The Netteswell skipper retired on completing his century, which included 14 fours (including five off Tom Waring's first over) and came off 117 balls. Burton was dismissed two balls later as their final total proved just out of Sawbo's reach in what was an entertaining 40 overs per side affair.
