Lavant vs Boxgrove, 8th June
Lavant held on to their catches in a nine-wicket win against Boxgrove. Put in, Boxgrove were soon in trouble as skipper A Reed flayed a short one from Stross to extra cover where Dave Burford did the rest. Gottisman struck four boundaries before falling to Stevens for 24 thanks to a catch from debutant keeper Graham Dale. Once Simmons skied a catch to slip, Lavant’s change bowlers dominated. John Newman took three for eight, Allan Davies three for eleven and Steve Brooker two for three. Only Donnavan got double figures and Graham Dale, Dave Burford and Peter Burford snared two catches apiece as Boxgrove succumbed for 63. Peter Burford and Graham Dale avoided the pitfalls of chasing a low total and put on 51 before Peter Burford miscued Chamberlain to A Reed for 34. Lavant eased past the required total well before time was up.
