HENLEY 2nds lost their first home Division 1 match of the season last Saturday against AMERSHAM at the Brakspear Ground.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat first and put on 256-5 with C Cann top scoring with 94.

In reply Henley were dismissed for just 106 runs in 29.1 overs as Amersham ran out winners by 150 runs.

KIDMORE END triumphed in their second Division 2B match of the season as they ran out winners by 65 runs at READING 2nds.

Skipper Jeff Sheldon won the toss and elected to bat first. Openers Joe Dixon and Guy Ashby got off to a good start as they put on 62 runs in the first 20 overs.

A Singh removed Dixon, Sheldon and Addyman during the course of his 16 over spell.

Vinnie Tyagi then came to the crease and reduced the visitors to 112-7 off of 38 overs.

The eight-wicket partnership between James Frost and Abi Aheed saw the visitors add 35 runs before Aheed was caught for 30.

At this point Frost took on the more aggressive role and with the help of Chris Pigden and Assad ul-Haq the Kidmore side reached 161 all out.

In reply James Frost struck first with the old ball. Soon after Frost had the other opener caught behind by wicket keeper Scott Addyman as Reading were wobbling at 11-2 from four overs. Reading’s number four Anwaar hit three quick boundaries before Crawford had him stumped by Addyman shortly after. When M Ali was trapped lbw by Frost soon after Reading were reeling at 36-4.

A Singh and M Roberts provided brief relief as they swung the bat and struck a few boundaries. Crawford kept chipping away with wickets, having one man caught in the slips by Joe Waldron, another bowled and another struck on the pad playing across a straight one as he completed his second five-wicket haul of the season. Two further quick wickets saw Reading all out for 97.

The visitors won the toss and put Henley into bat on a damp wicket at Turville.

Kenworthy and Very got off to a solid start in tough conditions and had some luck before both of them were dismissed and that brought Gurung and Oldershaw (60) to the crease to continue to build on the base.

Wickets fell around Oldershaw who batted sensibly to make use of the overs available and a partnership with Hopkins gave Henley some control. However, further wickets fell as Birkett and Pratley put on 20 runs for the last wicket which were crucial as Henley finished on 165.

In reply Henley got off to a flying start with Birkett (4-21) and Hayden (5-23) taking early wickets to leave Hillingdon on 17-5 with Birkett taking four wickets.

A partnership built before Hayden returned at the other end to take three wickets including two wickets in two balls. At the start of the next over Wahab took a wicket and quickly it became 34-9.

The final wicket partnership put up some resistance and after a few bowling changes Hayden returned to take his fifth to bowl Hillingdon Manor out for 60.

WARGRAVE had the better of a draw in their home match with THATCHAM TOWN 2nds in Division 4B.

The hosts won the toss and batted first with N Robinson (123 not out) and D Davies (50) helping Wargrave to 283-3.

In reply the visitors held on for a draw with one wicket to spare as they closed on 210-9.

KIDMORE END 2nds picked up all 20 points from their Division 6B encounter with FLEET 2nds who were unable to raise a side as did HENLEY 4ths in their Division 7B tie with BEACONSFIELD 4ths.

WARGRAVE 2nds maintained their 100 per cent record in Division 8B with a comfortable victory at HAREFIELD 4ths.

The hosts were dismissed for just 36 runs in 23.5 overs with Morton returning impressive figures of 5-21 for Wargrave.

In reply Wargrave knocked off the required runs with the loss of just four wickets as they closed on 37-4.

KIDMORE END 3rds were awarded all 20 points from their Division 9A match at YATELEY 4ths after the hosts cancelled the fixture.
