Match Report

1st XI v Stapleton (H)

Saturday, 27th May 2017
West of England Premier League
Bristol & North Somerset

After last weeks close defeat against Pak Bristolians it was important to get some points here against Stapleton. Batting first Chew got off to a poor start with Captain Denning caught for just 1 with the score on 2. The top order struggled against some decent bowling and wickets fell at 27, 67 and 70 to leave us somewhat wobbly at 70 for 4. A 60 run partnership got us back on track, Watson and Filer at the wicket. Watson went on to yet another 50 as the tail collapsed somewhat. Charlie Thompson and Shaun Hosier seeing out the final overs putting on a useful 35 in the process. The Stapleton reply was similar to the first innings. They lost early wickets (17 for 2) and never really built any partnerships throughout the run chase. Tyrone Isitt looked a likely match winner until bowled by David Lawrence for 49. With the pressure on and the run rate climbing the Stapleton batsmen were dismissed at regular intervals with Charlie Thompson the top performer with 4 for 32 off 9.3. Towards the end, after tight bowling from Fraser Thomas and David Lawrence, the run rate got beyond their reach and they lost 4 wickets for 14 runs playing a shot or two too many. A good win against a side that will be pushing for top 6 finish come the end of the Season. Man of the Match. Charlie Thompson. 4 wickets and a last wicket partnership to post a competitive score. A tanker of Verve Clicko is on its way up Hollow Brook Charlie, Well Done!
