Match Report

1st XI v Whitchurch (H)

Saturday, 21st April 2007
Friendly

After 5 weeks without rain, the wicket looked like it usually does in June let alone April. With the sun shining Whitchurch batted first looking to post a good score. After Wall had gone for just 11, Screen and Brown piled on the runs, Brown going to 59 before being adjudged LBW by Ken Mondair. Screen went for 49 also by Ken.

A mini collapse saw the end of 3 wickets including the prolific James Gammon for just 16. However P. Jefferies came in and smashed a rapid 41 not out as Whitchurch totalled an impressive 268 for 8. This was helped in no small part by the 23 wides Chew bowled. The wickets were shared around by the bowlers. Nick Beedell and Richard Gatton opened for Chew and both got runs and Chew were nearly up to 50 when Nick was bowled by Filer for 24, Rich went soon after bowled by B Jefferies for 33.

Then followed a mini collapse with Danny Gatton, Andy Witcombe both going cheaply. Neil Ogborne and Australian Ben Frawley added some stability, but with overs running out both went attempting to up the run rate. With runs needed quickly Sam Munday and Dave Filer set about the Whitchurch attack scoring 41 and 47 not out respectively. Unfortunately when Sam was caught and bowled by M Gammon the game was up.

Chew finished on 256 for 9 off their 40 overs, just 8 runs short. The Champagne moment and the CJ Hole Numpty Moment cannot be awarded for this game as the editor was not present. However the Man of the Match was shared by Sam Munday and Dave Filer.
