Ashton piles on runs for Stoke Row in derby clash

THE keenly awaited Premier Division local derby at WOODCOTE was abandoned while finely balanced when the rain came down after

THE keenly awaited Premier Division local derby at WOODCOTE was abandoned while finely balanced when the rain came down after 29 overs of the second innings against STOKE ROW.

A sufficient number of overs had been bowled for there to be a result with the visitors taking the winning draw on a superior run rate.

Winning the toss, the home side elected to field and Stoke Row took full advantage of a good batting track.

Richard Ashton hit a fine half-century and he received good support from four other batsmen as Stoke Row surpassed maximum batting points.

Mark Pearson took four wickets for Woodcote while Jonny Clark claimed two wickets in his 12 over spell, conceding only three runs an over.

After tea Woodcote lost a couple of early wickets but Paul Knox was looking in good form as he raced to his half-century before rain put an end to proceedings.
