THE late summer weather was set fair as HARPSDEN hosted CHECKENDON on Sunday.
In a rather one-sided affair Harpsden set an above-par target of 212 off their 40 overs.
Sam Imlay and Adam Birkett both scored good half-centuries on a wicket that was tricky to bat on against the new ball.
Checkendon never managed to get going in reply. The Harpsden bowling attack all delivered a very tight line and the visitors lost wickets regularly.
Special mention must go to young Matthew Stanley who took his first Harpsden wickets with his proud father watching from behind the stumps.
