Broxbourne v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 17 Aug 2019 at 1.00
Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club Lost 41 runs

Match report The relegation battle from the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League took another unexpected twist this week as Sawbridgeworth’s fight to stay in the division continued following their 41 run defeat at Broxbourne on Saturday.

With Harpenden 2nd XI being deducted 30 points for fielding an unregistered junior player earlier in the season, just 12 points separated the bottom four clubs at start of play. However, they wiped out this penalty with a seven wicket victory over third bottom Kings Langley that moved them 23 points clear of the relegation zone.

Despite suffering a 10th defeat of the season, Steve Ashman’s side moved to within two points of Kings Langley, whose key game is on Saturday week when they meet basement side Knebworth Park, who still have an outside chance of survival themselves.

A delayed start at Mill Lane Close saw the game reduced to 37 overs a side with Sean Black, who finished with league best figures of 4-30, taking three early wickets to reduce Broxbourne to 15-3. Chris Sargent (48), who was dropped on nought, shared a century fourth wicket partnership with skipper Conor Ridley (54) before Broxbourne’s last seven wickets fell for 58 runs.
Matt Billings (2-41) and William Jones (2-23) again bowled well in tandem to help dismiss the hosts for 173, only the third occasion that Sawbo had bowled a team out this season.

In reply, the visitors slumped to 10-2 before Jack Timms and Joe Holland, who scored 24 apiece, added 55 for the third wicket. However, the loss for four wickets for two runs in 16 deliveries effectively ended their victory hopes as they
eventually finished on 132-9. They earned two additional batting bonus points with Owen Groves top scoring with 25 not out.
