Lamprecht falls short of opening day ton

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.
