Match Report

The fine weather in Wales continued for our annual fixture against Christ College Brecon, and saw a fine match, played over 35 overs.

The College won the toss and elected to field, and took an early wicket. The best partnership of the innings followed, though, with Tom Harris (25) and Jonathan Twigg (67) putting on 73 for the second wicket.  Gareth Owen (14) and Nick Carruthers (20) continued the good work, and by the fall of the fourth wicket, the score was 141 off 30 overs. The College hit back then, though, and took four more wickets whilst only conceding 15 runs. Their best bowlers were H Edwards (3 – 26 off seven overs) and C East (1 – 19 off four overs).

The College’s reply started badly, as they lost two wickets for no score in the first two overs. A fight back followed, though, when O Newey (43) and H Thomas (17) put on 55 for the third wicket, but this was followed by several more wickets to leave the College on 92 for six off 25 overs. H Edwards (39*) led the recovery and had help from H Blagborough (10), but when the latter was run out, the score was 121 for seven off 33 overs. The end came shortly afterwards to see the Club home by 22 runs. Colin Griffiths (2 – 34 off seven overs) and John Lodge (2 – 36 off seven overs) were the Club’s best bowlers.
