Wargrave bowler secures 10-wicket haul

A BOWLER from Wargrave Cricket Club took 10 wickets in an innings but was powerless to stop his side’s defeat.

Scott Morton, 25, bowled six batsmen, trapped two lbw, had one caught in the field and caught one off his own bowling.

His efforts restricted the Amersham 4th team to 125 runs but Wargrave 3rds crumbled to 105 all out in reply to lose their Thames Valley League Division 9B clash and drop from first-place to second.

Morton, from Earley, said: “The ground is on a bit of a slope so I tried to swing the ball into the batsmen.

“I took a wicket in my first over, knocking a stump out of the ground, and then everything seemed to click.
