NORTH LONDON TAKE THE MATCH

North London 337-3; Ley Hill 220-9.

Having dropped this season to Division 4 of the Chess Valley Sunday League, Ley Hill found themselves playing new opponents North London with a new captain in charge – Ben Ford. NL won the toss and decided to bat – a good decision as their Number 2 and 3 batsmen set about the LH bowlers in no uncertain manner. W. Lake ended up with 150 from just 90 balls before being caught by Richard Falconer (making his first appearance for two years) from the bowling of Craig Ottaway and Y. Mudiyanselage was 112 not out from 91 balls. Suffice it to say that having only lost 3 wickets, NL ended their 45 overs with a score of 337 – a new record for an opposition score against LH! The bowlers’ economy rates varied between 6.10 and 9.42 runs per over. Say no more.

In response, LH made a brave effort at scoring, but at half way with the score on 95 for 5 it looked an impossible task. Ben Ford had opened and was still there and when the 5th wicket fell, he was joined by Joe Yerrell at the crease. They had a 6th wicket partnership of 88 before Joe was bowled which took the score to 183 from 39 overs. Ben stayed put until the final over when he managed to run himself out on 112. This was his first ever century and a magnificent effort, but despite a quickfire 40 from Lewis Thompson earlier in the innings, LH could only manage 220 for 9 from their 45 overs. The NL bowlers shared the wickets around, with best figures 2 for 19 from C. Grearley.
