Match Report

Sun XI v Timsbury (H)

Sunday, 3rd May 2009
North Somerset Sunday League

Dave Filer and Andy Witcombe rescued Chew from certain defeat with a display of controlled defence and then from Filer concerted attack.

Chew were rocked by the Timsbury openers as they sank to 0 for 3 and then 12 for 5 as new overseas signing Neil Robson, Max Tanner and Jamier 'Trundle' Dawson all went for ducks. Paul King and Richard Light went shortly afterwards and Chew were looking certain losers after just 10 overs.

Enter Andy Witcombe and Dave Filer, who after steadying the ship began the counter attack. Witcombe hung around for 18 overs for his 26, but was there to support Filer as he began his assault. Dave went for it big time as he crashed the luckless Timsbury attack to all parts.

After Witcombe went Andy Banks back after a year off took over and with Filer took the score passed 150. Filer retired to let some of the tail enders have a bat, and after Banks (13), Iain Locke (17) and Blaine Bryant (0).

After Bryant was out he reappeared for the last over to finish on 104 not out. After tea surved up by Pam and Marina, Chew set about defending a reasonable score. the wicket was variable, some deliveries really coming through with pace and bounce and some keeping a bit low. Max Tanner and Andy Banks opened for Chew and although not threatening too much did keep the run rate down.

The first wicket was a run out when 'Trundle' Dawson swooped like a flock of sheep from cover to hit the stumps direct. Neil Robson took over from the Tree End and 'Trundle' from the Pavilion End. Both bowled without luck and both had catches put down in the slips.

As the required rate rose, wickets began to fall. One to Witcombe who took over at the Tree End and One to Locke from the other. Two more run outs came and Max Tanner finished his 8 overs off with a wicket to leave the visitors on 173 for 6.

A second win in three games for Chew in this their first season in the North Somerset Sunday League. We look forward to a summer fo cricket when the promised heat wave arrives.
