2022 Season Match Reports

Lynchmere v Lavant – Sat 23rd Apr

For the benefit of those not there, we batted first on a pretty dead pitch although with some unpredictable bounce! Against accurate but pretty unexciting bowling, scoring was hard but some excellent disciplined batting all round got us to 166/9 at the end of our time. Lynchmere never really tried to chase the total but despite a really good bowling effort we couldn’t wheedle them out and they ended up at 120/5. A frustrating draw but a moral victory, for what that’s worth. The most encouraging thing was good all round performances from the whole team.

Lavant v Chidham & Hambrook – Sun 1st May

Threat of rain meant curtailed game. Jamie, Steve and Dave lead the way with the bat, each retiring at 50 to take us to 193 for 2 in our 30 overs. Then sensational bowling from Jamie (4-10), Miles (4-12) and Mark H and a match-winning wicket from Dan took them to 79 all out for a 114 run victory with 6 overs to spare. In addition Miles made a direct hit on the stumps from about 30 metres, side on, for what is likely to be the run out of the season!
