Swift opening helps visitors secure honours

THE derby match between HURLEY and CRAZIES HILL AND COCKPOLE GREEN saw the visitors triumph at Shepherds Lane on Sunday.

Having won the toss, Ian Stuart opted to bat first and his opening pair of Harry Swift and Peter Martin posted 65 in 14 overs for the first wicket.

Having seen off the opening attack of Bert Simon and Mo Basharat, Martin was trapped lbw by Cameron Wright. Doug Montgomery managed to toe end his first delivery to Ben Fraser at point to give Wright the chance of a hat-trick which Will Schofield defended successfully.

Schofield and Swift added 61 for the third wicket before the latter was tempted down the track by Dave Walton allowing Mike Walton to complete the stumping.

Walton also accounted for Schofield with Jordan Barradell-Pither providing a safe pair of hands at mid-off.
