Match Report:

Match reduced to 34 overs per innings. Stoney batted positively to a competitive score largely thanks to Northwood's aggressive 40 and Liddell's stylish 38. Newman & Taylor's unbeaten 8th wicket stand of 53 took the score to 165/7 before an early tea was taken due to a heavy shower. Ben Ream bowled accurately at good pace to collect 4/28 & Cheney were tidy in the field.

With the wicket well covered & the home captain's emergency dash for more sawdust, the welcome arrival of the sun after tea meant the ground was safe to resume play upon. Taylor's miserly spell of just 4 runs from 7 overs, and 18yr old Ciaran Northwood's genuine pace saw Cheney on the backfoot and soon behind the run rate. Only opener Tillcock's anchor role resulted in a meaningful score. Despite a few shelled sitters, the home bowling & fielding unit closed the game out as the run rate climbed - with Hicks & Newman mopping up the lower order. The innings ended at 119 all out from 30.2 overs.

Well played both very fair umpires in managing the rain break & overs, never easy when one team is much keener to play than the other. Particular thanks to Mr Marsden for helping complete the score card and our book Cheney forgot to fill in any of their batsmen's scores when they sadly had to leave so quickly.
