Bryan bludgeons three sixes to secure honours
Published 22/04/14



AT the Harpsden Cricket Ground re-opening on Saturday a PRESIDENT’S XI overcame a CHAIRMAN’S XI by 32 runs in a Twenty20 match.

Batting first the President’s XI were in trouble on 35-4, despite Ian Whittaker hitting the first six on the new ground, with James Brooks again in fine early season form to take three wickets.

Captain Bryan salvaged the innings scoring 59 not out including three sixes, with some able support from Johnny Wright getting the score up to 126 at the end of the innings.

After a tea break including speeches and the official opening by Angus Fraser, the Chairman’s XI set about the run chase.

Despite a battling 26 from Ben Hancock the Chairman’s XI were never up with the rate. Christian Whittaker and James Paice took two wickets apiece as the President’s XI won by 32 runs.


HARPSDEN ran out winners in their first match of the season away to THEALE AND TILEHURST on Sunday.

The home side struggled to get going due to a fine opening spell of bowling from Ed Birkett and Johnny Wright. It was only with 10 overs to go that the run rate accelerated, Theale eventually finishing with 184 off their 44 overs.

In reply, although losing wickets regularly, Harpsden were always up with the rate. A fine innings from Ben Hancock assisted by some lusty blows from tailender Johnny Wright eventually saw Harpsden home with two overs to spare.
