Match Report

1st XI v Stapleton (A)

Sunday, 16th May 2010
National Village Knockout, 2nd Round

Chew got revenge for their 2008 defeat in this Village Cup quarter final tie against Stapleton. After the dramatic collapse and defeat 2 years ago, Chew were out to even the scores this time around.

The hosts were bowled out for just 118 in 38 overs with the wickets being spread around. Dave Filer mopped up the tail with 3 for 8 after the early damage had been done by Steve Satterthwaite and Gary Filer.

118 is a small total on a thisl ground and Stapleton needed early wickets for any chanct to win. Andy Witcombe and Richard Gatton opened the Chew batting and put on 50 for the first wicket before Rich was caught in the guilly off Chard.

Dave Filer joined Andy at the crease and the two of them blasted the Stapleton attack out of the park as Andy finished on 56 not out and Dave "Mr Cricket" Filer on a quick fire 34 which included a couple of monster sixes over mid wicket.
