WOODCOTE retained the Red Kite Building Solutions Downs Midweek League title on Wednesday of last week
WOODCOTE retained the Red Kite Building Solutions Downs Midweek League title on Wednesday of last week as they defeated nearest challengers WOODHAY.
The evening began with a minute‘s silence in memory of the Woodcote club president Christopher Quinton who had passed away earlier in the day.
Woodhay knew that only a win would do if they wanted to regain the title they lost to Woodcote last year and their batting revealed their determination to do just that.
After a couple of early wickets for skipper Jonny Clark, Dando and Flack put on 111 for the third with Dando hitting a century. The Woodcote bowlers toiled without much success, but a good fielding performance kept the score down to 183-3.
In reply for the third match in succession Will Macdonald and Ryan Lennard swept aside bowler after bowler to bring about a 10 wicket victory with an over to spare.
