Match Report

2nd XI v Wells 2 (H)

Saturday, 14th May 2005
Somerset Cricket League
Division 3 NE

Chew Magna seconds started this game bottom of the division after their poor display and subsequent stuffing by Belvedere last week. This game was in complete contrast to that as Chew handed out a thrashing of their own to Wells. Chew strengthened by a couple of returning footballers won the toss and batted first on a good looking track.

Warren and Sam flayed the wayward Wells attack to all parts as they cruised past the fifty stand in just 8 overs. Unfortunately captain Smith went caught at mid on for 33, but Sam, joined by Bruce Palmer, went on with the carnage. The pair put on another fifty before Sam was caught on the fence going for his ton with a six. Bruce soldiered on and completed his fifty in the last overs before tea. He was supported by Neil Ogborne who just popped in for a few overs between revising for his cycling proficiency badge, and also Richard Mann who did his usual block one whack one trick. One of the ones he whacked went way out over the road. With all this mayhem, the Wells bowlers were suffering just a bit. The final score was 254 for 3 off our 45 overs.

Chasing that sort of score is always a challenge and the Wells boys tried hard, but they were always pursuing a lost cause. After the first 3 went it was all down hill for them. Most impressive again was Mark Hooper, who in his almost McGrath type of bowling style, bowled 8 overs and took 2 for 12. Wells faded away in the closing overs and even though we tried out all the bowlers with varied success, they got to 200 with the loss of 9 wickets.

So, a good result for Chew Two's and 34 points in the bag. Next week we will be at Brent Knoll. Now where's those industrial ear defenders?
