Kimber gets into the swing as Peppard ease to victory

PEPPARD STOKE ROW snatched a winning draw from the jaws of defeat in their Premier Division

PEPPARD STOKE ROW snatched a winning draw from the jaws of defeat in their Premier Division clash at WEST READING.

The visitors elected to bat first at Reading University but suffered an early setback as Andy Watts was deceived by an Amaar Raja slower ball.

Richard Walker and Sam Boughton steadied the ship during a useful second wicket partnership which was only ended when the former was run out via a direct hit.

Wynand Lamprecht followed shortly after but Boughton looked increasingly dominant as he passed 50.

He was joined by captain Paddy Hennessy who slugged a number of short pitched deliveries to the onside boundary.



Boughton missed out on a deserved century when he was bowled by Sultan Khan for 93, but with Hennessy ending on 51 not out, the visitors set a respectable 205-5.

West Reading began their innings efficiently as Kazam Kamal and Adam Davidson set a solid platform.

However, Lamprecht dismissed both â?? the latter caught one-handed by Boughton at a straight short mid-wicket â?? to reduce the hosts to 68-2.

Rahim Khan and Zafar Ali seemed set to take the hosts to victory as they left their side needing 67 from the last 10 overs.

Ian Jackson dismissed the former to give the visitors hope, and when Ashley Hayden removed Ali and Mubin Ahmed in the space of two balls, the champions were alive.

Sultan Khan smashed a couple of boundaries to give West Reading the initiative, but fine bowling late on from Hayden, father Roy and Boughton ensured West Reading could only total 201-8.

WOODCOTE won the toss and elected to field and soon had BCS GROSVENOR in trouble on a difficult pitch.

The home side slumped to 38-5 as all five Woodcote bowlers turned the screw, bowling a tight line to make run-scoring difficult.

Jonny Clark’s opening spell of 12 overs saw him concede only one run per over for two wickets.

The other bowlers followed suit with Zaheer, Steve Henderson, Zaf Akram and Ryan Van Heerden all taking wickets.

BCS Grosvenor failed to reach the century mark and were all out in 40 overs.

In reply, Woodcote also found batting difficult, but they held their nerve and won in just short of 27 overs by four wickets.

Dropped catches proved costly as PEPPARD STOKE ROW 2nds went down to defeat against EMMBROOK AND BEARWOOD in Division 1.

Peppard Stoke Row skipper Olly Nicholson won the toss and elected to bowl on a green-tinged pitch which offered some early assistance to the bowlers.

The home side enjoyed a good initial spell in the field, taking regular wickets and fielding well to leave Emmbrook 65-3 after 22 overs. However, a couple of dropped catches helped release the pressure and, with Sean Woodward keeping his head and latching on to any loose deliveries, Emmbrook eventually concluded their innings on 193-8 off their allocated 45 overs.

Sam Fooks was the pick of the Peppard Stoke Row bowlers, his single spell of accurate swing bowling yielding only 25 runs off 12 overs, beating the edge on numerous occasions.

In reply the Peppard Stoke Row top order were soon in disarray as Hugh Asquith and Simon Gozzard departed in the first over for nought, having scored 135 runs between them the previous weekend.

Olly Nicholson, batting at four and facing only the fifth ball of the innings, opted to counterattack by hitting the Emmbrook skipper over long on for six.

Peppard Stoke Row then progressed to 49 off eight overs before losing Riaan Ackerman to a leg-cutter from Kaleeswaran.

After Nicholson was given out caught behind for 30, the Peppard Stoke Row innings subsided, with only Carl Hvass and Dominic Hall offering any real resistance, the latter running out of partners after a solid 23.

With only three players reaching double figures, Peppard Stoke Row never looked like challenging Emmbrook’s total and eventually folded for a well below par 97 all out.

GORING’S impressive start to the league season continued with a four-wicket victory at home to STRATFIELD TURGIS.

Home skipper Ollie Carrier won the toss and backed his bowlers, a decision that was vindicated as his pacemen ripped through the Turgis top order.

Carrier’s faith in first team debutant, Clive Kent, was repaid immediately as Kent took three wickets in an entertaining spell. Jamie Vickery claimed 4-16 while Peter Slade chipped in with two lbws.

Goring played well in the field and nothing epitomised this more than a crucial run out from Duncan Kent. Dan Reynaldo put up most resistance for the visitors, but could not prevent Stratfield from being bowled out for 96.

In reply the home team suffered an early scare as two wickets were taken without reply. Adam Ellis, making his home debut for Goring, and Stephen Wincott steadied the ship with 32 and 30 respectively to ease Goring towards the victory target.

A few late wickets made the finish nervier but it was left to Clive Kent to crown a fine first team debut by hitting the winning runs as Goring eased home in 26 overs.

Matt Kimber produced a bowling masterclass to help PEPPARD STOKE ROW 3rds to their first Division 4 win of the season during a seven-wicket thrashing of EMMBROOK AND BEARWOOD 3rds.

The wily left arm swing bowler took 5-17 in 10 overs as the home side were skittled for just 75.

Captain Rob Dyer also chipped in with a fine spell and he dismissed dangerman Nick Higson for a first ball duck â?? the summer after the batsman had blasted a match-winning century against the same opponents.

Dyer’s efforts were matched by Welsh off spinner Aled Roberts who grabbed a brace of wickets on his league debut.

Alan Mayers took the other wicket for Peppard Stoke Row as the hosts were routed in just 28 overs, Paul Stephens showing the only real fight during an unbeaten knock of 30 after returning to the crease following an early injury.

Peppard Stoke Row showed no sign of nerves in the run chase, with Don Townsin marshalling the affair well in an unbeaten 33.

Youngster Sam Kimber also chipped in before debutant Simon Jelowitz showed a useful array of shots to help Peppard Stoke Row over the line.
