Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI v Harlow Town on Sat 12 Apr 2014 at 1.30
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Won 105 runs

Match report Steve Ashman kicked off the season with an unbeaten century to help Sawbridgeworth to an opening day victory over Harlow Town.

He rescued the home side from a disastrous start, as both openers departed within the first seven balls of the new season. Along with new signing Axon, the pair put on 139 for the third wicket in 20.1 overs, before Bird continued the momentum as he scored 34 out of an fifth wicket stand of 53.

Foster and new captain McGarry also gave decent support at the other end as the home side scored 68 from the last nine overs.

M H Ali was run out without facing off the first ball of Harlow Town's reply before Kenny took 3 wickets on his Sawbo debut to reduce the visitors to 41-4.

Coleman, who scored a century in this fixture two years ago, scored an rapid 50 this time around to take his side past three figures before Foster struck twice in his first two overs to leave Town at 111-7. Poulter and Alderson put on 58 in just 56 balls but latter's needless run out saw the last three wickets go down in as many balls as Sawbo wrapped up the win with 38 balls in hand.
