LEY HILL TOO GOOD FOR BRAYWOOD AGAIN
By Eleanor Phillips
Braywood 188-10; Ley Hill 189-5
This was Ley Hill’s second meeting this season with Braywood and once again they stamped their authority on the match in no uncertain manner. The two teams will meet up yet again on 20th July in the final of the Chiltern League KO Cup at Coleshill. Can Ley Hill make it third time lucky???
Braywood won the toss and decided to bat, but were left reeling when their first four batsmen went for just 3 runs. However, the lower order steadied the innings and top scorer was Nasser Satti with 43. Pick of the Ley Hill bowlers was definitely Richard Clarke who took 5 wickets for 31 runs.
After a long tea interval so that those who are football fans could watch some match or other, play resumed and Ley Hill opened with Ben Moultrie-Ford and Craig Peterson. Moultrie-Ford was soon back in the pavilion but together with his new partner – Justin Hutchins – Peterson stayed put, scored a sparkling 116 runs from 82 balls, and carried his bat. His innings included 18 fours and 3 sixes. Best Braywood bowling came from Nasser Satti who took 2 for 23.
