Sat 28 June - 2nd XI v Flimwell II

Posted on 1st July in 2008, 2nds Match Reports

Shoreham won the toss and elected to bat against the team who had picked up the most bowling points so far this season. The old stalwarts of R.C. Trick (10) and P. Styles (32) opened the batting against some good bowling from the home team with the demise of Trick with the score on 22, A. Hummersome (27) on his debut strode to the crease to take part in the highest partnership of the day for Shoreham of 49. Alex Hofmann (26) stayed at the crease for sometime and was the eighth wicket to fall, M. Wells chipped in with 13 before being adjudged lbw. Jack Rivett (0) swished at a wide one and lobbed the ball to mid on, Nick Pearce (1) fell early as did Montie (4), Brown (9) not out tried to rally his troops. Tom Palmer (1) lobbed the ball back to the bowler then Brad Sims (0) gloved one to gully and was called by Chris for a quickie but did not come quick enough and was left short. (Just like the majority of our bowling). The Shoreham innings closed on 148 in 36.3 overs with the last six batsmen accumulating 15 runs between them. This was by far the best all round bowling attack faced by the seconds this season with no let up from good line and length.

The Flimwell innings got off to a flying start with them having 39 runs on the board after 3 overs, with Hofmann going for 12 off his first over and electing then to change ends, Tom Palmer bowled one over to allow this to happen and got punished form 18 runs. Brad bowled his normal good line but went for 33 off 5 taking 2 wickets, Ray Trick got punished severely going for 49 off 6 picking up 1 wicket, Jack tried in vain and went for 18 off 3, Tom came back and picked up a wicket and ended with figures of 1 for 27 off 1.4 overs. Flimwell deservedly ran out the winners by 6 wickets in 18.4 overs.
