Gerry brings home bacon to top table

PEPPARD STOKE ROW are the new Premier Division leaders following a three-wicket triumph at SOUTH EAST READING.

South African Dion Sampson celebrated his recall to the side with a fine display, dismissing opener Umar Akram in his opening over thanks to a one-handed slip catch by Rich Ashton.

Matt Hopper trapped Zafar Ali lbw before Sampson removed the dangerous Atif Asif - caught by Will Bishop - to leave South East Reading on 38-3.

Captain Qamar Abbass looked in fine form until he was run out while Ian Jackson grabbed two quick wickets to leave the hosts on 78-6.

Bilal Naeem made an unbeaten 36 to steer his side to a reasonable if under par score, but Sampson’s return ushered out the tail to leave the hosts 125 all out as he claimed figures of 5-36.
