Challenge looms for Henley on trip to Tring
Published 09/06/14

HENLEY make one of the few longer journeys of the season tomorrow (Saturday), now that the Hertfordshire clubs have gone, ironically to a club that is located in Hertfordshire but has its cricketing roots firmly in the TVCL and HCPCL.

Tring Park is always a popular venue for the Henley travelling support with its friendly and inviting ambience, stylish pavilion and good food, not to mention Tring Brewery beer.

In recent years Tring has proved to be a happy hunting ground for Henley and there have been some exciting games - notably the last ball victory in 2012 thanks to Dieter Klein and again in 2013 when Tring were blown away by Tahir Afridi’s 5-15, the bedrock of a seven wicket victory that owed much to in-form David Barnes’ 75 not out.

Last weekend, Tring saw off Gerrards Cross in pretty short order dismissing the home side for 91, but making slightly heavy weather of the run chase, losing five wickets in the process.

Tring are always a difficult side to play and have strength in depth and vast experience in the form of Keith Dutch and Simon Stanway who is probably the oldest player playing in Division 1 of the HCPCL and who has taken countless wickets over the years with his wily seam bowling.

William Jones has taken over the captaincy from Michael Payne, and he and keeper Robin Pritchard open the batting.

Without taking anything away from Harefield, this will be more of a challenge and by the end of Saturday, Henley will have much clearer picture where they stand in the 2014 pecking order. The Seconds are at home to High Wycombe Seconds.

In their two games played to date, Henley Seconds have drawn with Datchet and lost to Marlow - both of which were games they could and probably should have won.

High Wycombe Seconds are also looking for their first win and this will be a keen contest. The Thirds and Fourths will be looking to maintain their winning ways, respectively home to Newbury (at Nettlebed CC) and away at Ruislip Seconds. All these games start at 1pm.
