Lamprecht falls short of opening day ton
Published 28/04/14



SOUTH AFRICAN batsman Wynand Lamprecht fell agonisingly short of posting the first century of the Peppard Stoke Row era during an inter-club friendly on Saturday.

Peppard and Stoke Row Cricket Clubs — which had both existed for more than 100 years — merged during the off season in a bid to create a stronger long-term set-up, with the aim of bringing aspiring youngsters into senior cricket.

In Saturday’s game, Lamprecht made 98 before falling to a catch on the boundary as PEPPARD STOKE ROW A rattled up a competitive 230-5 off 40 overs at Peppard Common.

He was ably assisted by Will Legg (37), club captain Paddy Hennessy (24) and Sam Fletcher (40), while Dion Sampson snared 2-28 off seven overs.

In reply, Matt Hopper took 1-0 off six overs to leave PEPPARD STOKE ROW B on 19-3 after 11 overs.


Tim Vines (39) and Rich Ashton (90 off 70 balls) enacted a recovery before Will Bishop (50 not out off 40) ensured a tight game ensued.

Eventually the bowling off Hopper - who ended with 2-10 off eight overs - meant the B team fell just short on 219-6.

• Peppard Stoke Row is looking for players of all abilities to join the club which runs three Saturday league sides, two Sunday teams as well as U9s, U11s and U13s sides. Anyone interested in joining should contact chairman Ronnie Brock on 07880 971602.
