Roberts leaves visitors in a spin

WOODCOTE eased to a comfortable home win by 45 runs against CROWTHORNE on Sunday.

WOODCOTE eased to a comfortable home win by 45 runs against CROWTHORNE on Sunday.

Batting first the home side made a steady start with Crawford Anderson and Pete Roberts passing the half-century for the first wicket.

Against accurate bowling, runs continued to be hard to get until skipper, Jonny Aldridge, and James Worsfold let fly in the closing overs to take the score beyond 200.

Crowthorne’s reply began well and they looked to have a chance of victory, especially with Joe Davis at the wicket but unfortunately for him he ran out of partners as not one of the last seven Crowthorne batsmen managed to trouble the scorers.

Pete Roberts was Woodcote’s man of the match taking 5-25 to add to his score of 38 in the first innings.
