RECORDS TUMBLE AT LEY HILL

Ley Hill 375-3; Redbourn 376-8

The final match in the Chess Valley Sunday League season and we were visited by Redbourn CC. Ley Hill won the toss and skipper Craig Peterson opened the batting with Jon Lown. They were both going well with the score on 120 when Lown was caught by keeper McKay, bowler Carter for 33 runs, by which time Peterson had already passed his 50. It soon became obvious that we were watching something special as Peterson stayed put and continued scoring whilst Brad Norton (11 runs) and Phil Bush (1 run) came and went, and the innings ended after 45 overs with partner James Lagdon on 49 not out whilst Peterson himself had scored the magnificent total of 240 runs – definitely the highest score of the season.

This knock also takes Peterson to in excess of 1,100 runs for 2018 and over 11,000 runs in his cricketing career with Ley Hill. He faced 145 balls and had a strike rate of 165.51. Between them, Peterson and Lagdon put on 186 runs which is a new record for the 4th wicket partnership, having exceeded the previous record (held by Peterson and James Lyne) of 183. Of the 3 wickets which fell, two went to Darvell (2 for 43) and 1 to Carter (1 for 37).

Redbourn’s response was to go for it with all guns blazing and particularly outstanding were their Number 2 batter – W. Giacometti – who ended up with 154 not out (103 balls) and Number 3 batter – J. Arnold – with 85 runs from 50 balls. With good contributions from the majority of the remainder of the 10 players, they won the match on 44.4 overs with 376 for 8. Best of the Ley Hill bowlers was skipper Peterson who ended with figures of 3 for 43, followed by Richard Outfin (2 for 54), Craig Ottaway (1 for 73) and Ross James (1 for 55).

The aggregate score (i.e. both innings added together) was 751 which is another new record, the previous aggregate score being 614 from a Sunday league game between Ley Hill and Hemel 2nds. And finally, although he only scored a modest 33 runs in this match, Jon Lown has now scored an absolutely amazing 24,000 plus runs in his Ley Hill career.
