Match Reports & Teams For Saturday 12th May

 

A resounding win for the 1st;s but defeat for both the 2nd's and 3rd's.

 

Starting with the firsts at Harewood, skipper Craig's report is here: -

We lost the toss and were in the field. Reasonable start with the new ball without taking a wicket. Following in a similar pattern to the week before at drinks Brixham were 1 wicket down with around 80 on the board.

In the second half of their innings we were exceptional at times with some very tidy bowling and some good run outs meaning we kept Brixham to 177-7. Special mentions to Sikder 'Istiaque' Ahmed who on debut took 2 wickets bowling at a difficult time. Jacob Caunter bowled well without too much luck, Dave Wrench and James Degg equally. Well bowled lads!

In reply we knew we would need a good start as typically the wickets at home become very spin friendly second innings.

Andy Waltz and David Ackford were fantastic both notching 50ís with Walts finishing on 70 odd not out. Christian Bunney and Wrenchy saw us over the line.

 

Great result following a tough defeat last week. We are up and running!

 

Thanks to Ben Privett for scoring and to mother Caroline Donohue for teas.

 

And Jasons report on the 2nd's defeat to a strong Shaldon side is here: -

 

Lost toss and we batted first, which given the team balance, thatís what I would have done anyway. 


Good knocks from Rob Walker 51*, Josiah Caunter 22, Chris Dawe Po 22, Felicity Leydon-Davis 21. We amassed 158 -8 batting our overs. 


Defending that total was going to be hard with the bowlers we had but we tried! 
Two wickets for Jake Campbell-Beattie and 1 each for Matthew Draper and myself. 


Thanks everyone for putting in the effort. 


Thanks to John Agnew for scoring and Dave for umpiring. A difficult day all round tbh.

 

A brief report on a the 3rd's from Sean is here: -

 

Not a very long report today. Chelston batted first and scored 261-2.

Jake Agnew opened the bowling with an excellent first spell beating the bat on several occasions. Billy Pitman was slightly slower to get in to his rhythm but his last spell caused problems for the both Chelston Batsman. Evie Pitman took both wickets during a difficult period of the game with some superb swing bowling.

 

Again no heads dropped whilst we were in the field with everyone throwing themselves into the game, especially 'Linford' Jones on the boundary. 


Once in to bat we found that their opening bowlers kept the ball on the spot and they were just a bit too good for us today and we were all out for 22.

 

Just remember that they are a 1st XI and in 9 weeks time we get another go at beating them.

A large thank you to all the Pitmans that were there, in particularly for Jo who arranged all the tea and drinks for us.

Match Reports & Teams For Saturday 5th May

 

Well we've certainly had better opening days to a season! All three teams competed well but sadly all three were beaten.

 

Capt Craig reports on the 1st's very narrow defeat at Bideford: -

After winning the toss and bowling we were hoping to use any early movement there might have been on what was a pretty good wicket - slow but not too much to worry about for a batter.

No early wickets arrived as was hoped. Bideford batted well in patches, there was some good bowling from Alex who finished with 3 wickets, Dave Wrench stole 2 and the skipper chipped in with 2.

In the field we were very good at times taking most chances, just the odd slip of concentration which meant Bideford made 211-7 when 190-195 was probably a fair score.

Batting we started off well with both Andy Waltz and Dave Ackford hitting early boundaries. Once Waltz fell for 15, Dangerous and Christian Bunney set about the task both notching 50ís. Just as we were about to kick on we lost a couple of quick wickets and the run rate started to climb.

With 10 to go we needed about 90. They brought on slow bowler after slow bowler and it worked a treat with fielders found regularly. Some lusty blows from Wrenchy and Big H got us to within touching distance, but we came up two short.

Overall some great individual performances and very positive signs. At times we looked a bit rusty but with games this will change.

Credit to Bideford they did what they needed to do to win.

And Capt Degg's 2nd team report is here: -

We won toss and fielded first after a minutes silence was observed for those that the club has lost recently.

Bridestowe 104-5 to 150ao inside 27ov
Mathew Draper 1-16
Adam Sellick 1-19
Steve Raven 2-44 plus a casual run out
Sikder 'Istiaque' Ahmed 5-30

Top catches from Paul Hamilton and Chris Dawe Po - who also bagged a LEGSIDE WIDE STUMPING!!!

Plympton started their innings before tea which obviously knocked us out of our routine! Thatís all I can think of...
 

From 26-5 we battled to 113ao in the 36th over. Noticeable grit from Leemon with 31. Jack Sellick 15* and Josiah Caunter 10 put up a 32 run partnership for the last wicket - a pleasure for the balcony to watch and lots of positive comments were overheard for the 2.

It would be remiss of me not to mention all those behind the scenes who have helped the match go ahead today! Kev our groundsman for the track and decent pitch. Justin Wubbeling and Andy Waltz for the hours they put into signage, rolling squares, cutting outfields and generally making it possible to play. 


We were without a scorer today but a shout out to the the Bridestowe double act that helped us today. Jonesy - thank you for the real scoreboard today - 

A huge shout to Karen Farrer and her army of helpers who made tea/drinks go smoothly. 

 

Finally thank you to those who come down to support the team and we appreciate we werenít at our best today but thank you for your support. I really enjoyed it and look forward to the weather being the same next week hopefully.
