Match Report

Sun XI v Hampset (A)

Sunday, 25th April 2010
North Somerset Sunday League

Chew suffered back to back defeats at the start of their Sunday League campaign with an 87 run thrashing at the hands of Bath outfit Hampset.

Chew bowling first were chasing leather from the off despite a tidy start from Dave Filer who went for just 27 off his opening 8 over burst. However the other bowlers were flayed to all parts as hampset looked to build a comanding position before tea.

Hampset were heading for 300 before Charlie Thompson and Ben Ford got amongst the wickets as the hosts went aerial. Charlie picked up 4 for 57 off 7 overs and the impressive Ford, making his debut for Chew cashed in on some wild strokeplay by the Hampset tail with 5 for 36 off just 4 overs and 4 balls.

After tea Chew looked to get off to a fast start in their run chase. Sadly for Warren Smith he wasn't fast enough and was run out by a direct throw from cover. Paul King joined Mike Denning and the two began to rebuild. Slowly at first but then more quickly until first Denning (18) and the King (32) were stumped trying to increase the rate.

The middle order subsided and it was down to Ben Ford to come in and show some resolve with a quickfire 53 not out complied in the last 12 overs. Chew finished on 171 for 9 well short of their improbable target.

Congratulations to Ben Ford for an impressive debut, how many Chew Players can boast a 5 for and 53 not out on their first outing? Not many I suspect.

Chew will need to improve on their first two showings with both bat and ball, or it could be a long season...
