Sat 21 June - 2nd XI v Four Elms II

Posted on 23rd June in 2008, 2nds Match Reports

Apologies for match report, no Wyn this week, so if you are not a fan of watching paint dry, switch off now!

Another good week end for Shoreham CC lst and 2nd’s winning again, congrats Sree.

The seconds won the toss, decided to field with Brad getting into his usual mode of bowling a decent line, well supported by Alex, we had great hopes of rolling Four Elms over. Their opening batsman had other ideas and plundered 50 a piece. On 100 for 0 we were loooking at a big chase until, against the backdrop of Linda Wells screaming in the boundary bushes, Simon was introduced to the attack taking 3 wickets off 6 overs. At the other end Jack bowled a tidy spell returning figures of 9-0-31-1. Replacing him James Asplin at last found out where the off stump was and aimed at it for four overs, taking a wicket for 15 runs getting us a bowling point and putting us in for a shout, chasing 179.

Our openers found the going hard early on against some tight Four Elm’s bowling until Alex fournd his range and started to set about their attack. Paul was strangled and unlucky to be out for 12, this allowed Martin Wells to the crease who after a decent start didn’t know whether to stick or twist and was bowled for 13. SImon repaced his Dad and after great promise he too was bowled for 13, in the meantime, Alex was still bashing them out at the other end, this time suppported by Nick Pearce who hit a couple of straight sixes in his well played 21. Alex was eventually out for a career best of 67.

I returned to true form and was bowled for 1 leaving Montie and Jack the ‘golden Rivett’ to see Shoreham home, Jack scored an impressive 24 not out, with Montie on 13 and Shoreham with a total of 183 and our 3rd win of the season.
