FIRSTS CUP RUN CONTINUES
Ley Hill 140-10; Chalfont St Giles 121-9
Played in the quaintly old fashioned 15 x 8 ball over format, this was Round 2 of the 1st XI’s evening cup knock-out competition and they travelled to Chalfont St. Giles to play it.
Ley Hill won the toss and decided to bat first. Runs were shared around fairly evenly amongst the team, with the highest scorer being skipper Craig Peterson with 28. Ley Hill 140 for 10. Pick of the Chalfont St. Giles bowlers was C. Cross with 3 for 36 from 4 overs (or 32 balls).
Cross made a powerful start to Chalfont St. Giles’ reply – scoring 54 before being run out. The other opener (whose name is unfortunately unreadable in our score book) made 24 but only two other Chalfont St. Giles players reached double figures and they ended their 15 x 8 ball overs on just 121 for 9.
Ley Hill now go forward to the Area Semi-Final which will be played at Ley Hill on 18th June and their opponents are Penn & Tylers Green.
