Humphreys and Sampson milestone performances leave Mortimer West End in spin

CHRIS Humphreys took his maiden Premier Division five-wicket haul and fellow spinner Dion Sampson claimed his 200th league scalp, but PEPPARD STOKE ROW were left frustrated following a winning draw at home to MORTIMER WEST END last Saturday.

The hosts lost an early wicket before Fergus Nutt and Andy Watts shared a 97-run stand for the second wicket, the former looking in particularly good touch as he launched a six off Ken Allsobrook before eventually falling to off spinner Andy Johnson for 69 – his 14th entry in the Henley Standard Best of the Week competition this season.

Charles Lamprecht kept the momentum going for Peppard Stoke Row during a spritely 23, while Watts used all his experience to caress the ball all around the ground during a fine 83.

Captain Dan Hayden upped his league average to 108.83 during an unbeaten 48, before the hosts declared on 268-6 after 44 overs.

U19 left-arm spinner Humphreys (5-36) was the star of the show with the ball, taking his seasonal tally for the club to 34 wickets at 7.39 but despite wickets for Olly Nicholson and Sampson’s milestone, the visitors held firm under the auspices of Abrar Pewakar to close on 233-7.

CHECKENDON failed to take advantage of batting first at home to IBIS/MAPLEDURHAM in their Division 1 clash.

A number of ambitious shots contributed to their downfall against steady bowling and deep set fields. Luke Whiley finished with 4-45 and Errol Masters bowles a miserly spell of 3-14 in nine overs as the home side were dismissed for 154 in 40 overs with Sam Arrowsmith undefeated on 19.

After losing an early wicket the visitors made their task appear simple thanks to an unbroken partnership of 147 between Tom Osbourne and Chris Webber which saw them to victory with almost 13 overs to spare.

Elsewhere in the division GORING claimed a second successive victory with a good all-round team performance at home against SULHAMSTEAD AND UFTON.



The visitors won the toss and decided to bat, but some disciplined bowling and committed fielding from Goring saw Sulhamstead struggling to build a competitive total.

Jack Winterbottom and Andy Benning both claimed a couple of wickets and despite 50s from both Matt Rosier and Keerthi Prakash, Sulhamstead were restricted to 175-6.

In response the top order of Goring were determined to be positive yet watchful and this resulted in a comfortable run chase with Palash Banarjee and Andy Steele top scoring in the reply.

A late flurry of wickets caused some minor alarm but in the end Goring made it home with five wickets and 11 overs to spare.
