Match Report

                       Geoff Barker, the Forty Club captain won the toss and decided to bat on a fine, warm morning.  James Donaldson underpinned the innings with a fine, steady innings.  Charlie Pilling and Graham Ackroyd made useful contributions of 27 and at lunch the Forty Club was well set at 149 for 4.  After lunch, Donaldson progressed to 94 and Callum Stuart made an attractive 42 not out, allowing Barker to declare on 233 for 8. The Woodhouse Grove School batsman put up little resistance against some steady seam bowling and the wily left arm spin of Tony Sheppard.  However, Hammond looked an excellent batsman and played some attractive shots in his innings of 54.  Habib stuck around long enough to make 29, but no other school batsman made double figures and the school was bowled out for 124, giving the Forty Club victory by 109 runs.  Tony Sheppard finished with superb figures of 5 for 20 and continues to mystify schoolboy batsman with his flight and spin.
