Played at Hinton Charterhouse CC, BA2 7SZ

Match Report

After a discussion between the captains before the start, Hinton Charterhouse won the toss and decided to bat first, in a forty over game, with the forecast of potential rain late afternoon.  The home side got off to a flyer before the introduction of Sam Evans (2 for 19) and eighty-four year old Les Loader (1 for 26), who both took pace off the ball, to transform the momentum of the match. The pressure led to a risky single and Alex Stansfield made no mistake with a direct hit to complete the run out of the aggressive Matt Parfitt. They reached 204 for 9, in 38.4 overs, before localised heavy rain duly arrived.  An early tea was taken and XL’s target was reduced to 159 from 30 overs, on calculated run-rate. Richard Holmes led the reply with a powerful and positive 87 not out, as the Forty Club reached their target in the 23rd over, for the loss of just two wickets.
