FIRST BLOOD TO LEY HILL IN NEW DIVISION

Ley Hill 164-9; Braywood 67 all out

Our first match in the new Championship Division, which consists of the five top teams from the Berkshire League and the five top teams from the Chiltern League took us to Braywood CC which is roughly half way between Slough and Maidenhead. Braywood have problems with pitch drainage and the conditions the 1sts played on reflected this fact. All the players agreed it really was a “sticky wicket”.

Ley Hill skipper Craig Peterson won the toss and decided to bat. He opened with Ben Ford but scoring was extremely hard going and they both ended up back in the pavilion with the score on 29. Justin Hutchins came to the wicket and turned out to be the Hill’s highest scorer, grimly hanging on for just short of 2 hours for 42 hard won runs. Everyone found scoring hard going and the team batted out their 52 overs for a total score of just 164 for 9. Pick of the Braywood bowlers was Nasser Satti who took 2 for 21.

Braywood had started with only 9 players; then the 10th player declared on the team card arrived and took the field. Another player in whites also arrived, who the Braywood captain explained to the umpires, was a replacement for a member of his original team who had been taken ill. The umpires consulted with both captains and it was agreed that this player could field as a substitute, but as his name was not on the team card before the match started, he could not bat or bowl. This meant that Braywood only had 10 batsmen.

Ley Hill opened the bowling with the usual team of Craig Ottaway and Chris Morris. Morris was unlucky not to take any wickets although he only went for 9 runs in his 6 overs, but could only watch as Ottaway at the other end bowled a devastating spell, ending up with figures of 9 overs, 4 maidens, 13 runs and 6 wickets – definitely an early contender for this season’s Stan Channer Bowling Award! He left the other three wickets for the remaining bowlers – Lewis Thompson, Scott Peterson and Douglas Petrie who took one apiece. Braywood all out for 67.
