Goring secure bragging rights in keenly contested derby clash
GORING took the honours in the local derby match at WOODCOTE, running out winners by three wickets.
Woodcote batted slowly and did not pass the 50 mark until halfway through the 35 overs. Several batsmen looked as if they might go on to make a big score, but it never materialised and it took a patient innings from Chris Batey, once again the top-scorer, to hold the innings together.
Goring bowled and fielded well with the experienced Alex Crawford taking 2-8 in his seven over spell and Kent also bowling well to concede only 10 runs in his spell.
The Goring innings got off to a good start and it looked as if they would win quickly, but in the event with Keanu Brouard, Sean Bell and James Worsfold all bowling well the winning run did not arrive until the 29th over.
Sean Bell distinguished himself with a caught and bowled to remove Goring captain, Ollie Carrier.e_SClBWOODCOTE
