Big-hitting Legg in fine form

A MAGISTERIAL hundred from Will Legg — who took his seasonal run tally to 1,616

A MAGISTERIAL hundred from Will Legg — who took his seasonal run tally to 1,616 in all competitions — was the highlight of the game between PEPPARD STOKE ROW KITES and READING UNIVERSITY STAFF which was eventually abandoned due to rain on Sunday.

Opening with his father Gary, the talented 17-year-old provided another exhibition as he showcased shots 360 degrees around the wicket.

The opening partnership put on 82 before Legg senior was trapped lbw, but a sprightly contribution from Jake Leach kept the momentum with Peppard Stoke Row.

The hosts’ innings was all about Will Legg, who made his third career hundred before dropping to kiss the wicket of a club he has played for since the age of nine.

He accelerated after reaching three figures, his knock of 120 eventually ending with nine four and four sixes during a masterclass of batsmanship.



Under-15 Dan Bacon added a useful 20 not out as PSR ended their 35 overs on a competitive 212-4.

David Williams again bowled with good pace in reply, while leg spinner Josh Perkins â?? one of seven U18s in the side â?? bowled visiting captain Andy Eagle round his legs.

Ryan accounted for Robbie Loader but as the rain became heavier, the game was abandoned after 12 overs of the Reading University innings with the batting side 67-2.
