Match Report

A fine day at Aberystwyth Cricket Club saw the Forty Club win the toss and bat first. After a slow start, the club recovered to 69 – 3 off 11 overs. A partnership of 53 for the fourth wicket and then 105 for the fifth wicket aw the cub to a total of 259 for 5 off their forty overs.

Another captain’s century, this time by Andi Price (105 retired) led the way, and he was well supported by 45 from Tom Harris.  The best bowlers were Louis Fice (2-49) and Titus Matthew (2-62).

This was too big a target for the Youth, who, despite a fine innings of 58* by their captain, Zaid Khan, were all out for 72. The wickets were shared between Nick Evans (4-20), Lee Parry (3-21) and Peter Evans (2-12) plus a run out.

The hosts were excellent as always, with the only disappointment being the lack of trains on the adjoining Vale of Rheidol Railway because of recent track side fires further up the line.
