Openers help Kites get off to a flying start
Published 28/04/15



WYNAND Lamprecht and Will Legg both hit centuries as PEPPARD STOKE ROW KITES began their season with a convincing 63-run win at CHECKENDON.

The opening pair shared a colossal and almost chanceless stand of 265 before both retired, Lamprecht for 117 and Legg – who was dropped twice in two balls on 99 – for 134.

Tim Vines, Simon Gozzard and Paddy Hennessy then continued the assault as the visitors closed their 40 overs on 304-3.

The Kites made an early breakthrough as Checkendon chased a daunting target, talented youngster Hamish Scott taking a fine caught and bowled to dismiss Hoyle.

Captain Stewart Manning was dropped early on by Hennessy but hit a pair of straight drives to help his side to 81-1 at the end of the 14th over.


The introduction of Mick Chard heralded a mini-collapse for the hosts, with Gary Legg also benefiting from a fine catch from Scott on the deep mid-wicket boundary to claim a wicket as Checkendon fell to 166-5.

The home side continued to fight valiantly and John Acland-Hood was in imperious form as he cruised past 50. Death bowling specialist Rich Ashton used a combination of yorkers and slower ball bouncers to claim a quick-fire brace of wickets, restricting Checkendon to 198-7.

Acland-Hood smashed 30 from a Gozzard over – the first four balls all going for six – as he threatened to pull off a stunning heist for his side.

But Gozzard held his nerve to catch his nemesis on the long-off boundary after Acland-Hood mistimed an Ashton slower ball, and the returning Scott and Vines helped themselves to a wicket apiece as a brave Checkendon effort was ended on 241.

Aled Roberts and Mark Lambert stole the show as PEPPARD STOKE ROW MAHARAJAS began their season with a bang with a five-wicket win at MORETON.

Visiting captain Matt Kimber inserted the hosts after winning the toss, and his side gained an early advantage as Stuart Beeton induced an edge from the dangerous John Harrison.

Angus McGregor and Sam Smith rebuilt effectively before Beeton knocked over the latter, and Roberts bagged two wickets in two balls to reduce the home side to 68-4.

The Welsh off-spinner then cleaned up Nigel Hessey, but Howard Edwards and Josh Slade counterattacked to good effect.

However, Roberts then bowled Slade and Tim Cannings to claim a maiden five-wicket haul – the first ever for a Maharaja.

Skipper Kimber claimed a wicket with his first ball during an excellent four over spell and Danny May and Sam Kimber also struck as Moreton were dismissed for 112.

The Maharajas suffered a nightmare start as they collapsed to 24-5 after the first ball of the 10th over, but Lambert counterattacked to devastating effect.

The wicket-keeper initially struck a beautiful straight six off Edwards before latterly hitting another brace of maximums, and aided by Rich Ashton, the pair added 92 in just 55 balls to seal the victory.
