Watts hits century as Peppard Stoke Row secure derby day win

PEPPARD STOKE ROW continued their fine start to the Premier Division season with a 164-run victory

PEPPARD STOKE ROW continued their fine start to the Premier Division season with a 164-run victory at home to neighbours WOODCOTE on Saturday.

The visitors elected to field after winning the toss but found Wynand Lamprecht and Fergus Nutt in fine form during an opening stand of 77.

The former was eventually dismissed by Woodcote captain Ryan van Heerden, but this merely heralded the arrival of the league&rsquos all-time top scorer Andy Watts.

He showcased his trademark strength through the leg side, and with Nutt also passing 50 before falling to Zaheer Ahmed as the hosts moved into a dominant position.

Dan Hayden accelerated the scoring even further with a breezy 58 not out from 35 balls, and when Watts reached his century from just 77 balls the hosts declared on 273-3 after 41 overs.

Woodcote&rsquos reply began in disastrous fashion as Matt Hopper swung the ball prodigiously in removing Stefan Gordon, Mike Stroker and Jez Mayo.

Charles Lamprecht accounted for Micky Malloy before spinners Ashley Hayden and Wynand Lamprecht worked their way through the lower order.

Jonny Clark sportingly walked after feathering a catch down the leg side off Hayden — caught by his brother Dan — while JP Brouard made a defiant 58, but it was not enough as Woodcote were bowled out for 109.

Stand-in opener Luke Gray gave CHECKENDON a brisk start at home to STRATFIELD TURGIS in Division 1, top scoring with 39.

Accurate bowling from the visitors in the middle part of the innings restricted the home side who reached 181 all out thanks to late blows from Ravi Vedeanthappa.

Stratfield skipper Steve Clarke led from the front, taking 4-29 in his 11 overs before following up with a hard hitting 69 and sharing a match winning second wicket partnership with J Wright, who remained undefeated on 52 as the visitors secured victory by six wickets with an over to spare.

Elsewhere in the division GORING suffered a 19 run defeat at home to IBIS MAPLEDURHAM.

Batting first the visitors were bowled out for 177 before Goring responded by being all otu for 158.



Sam Boughton hit a mammoth 130 not out as PEPPARD STOKE ROW 2nds eased to a comfortable Division 2 home win against SANDHURST 2nds.

Having been asked to bat first, the hosts recorded a rapid start with Jake Leach finding the boundary regularly.

The fall of the first wicket brought Boughton to the crease who proceeded to score rapid singles and well-run twos combined with powerfully struck boundaries to make life difficult for the fielding side. Later accompanied by Olly Nicholson, Boughton went on to score 130 as the hosts declared on 266-3.

Sandhurst struggled on a slow wicket as the hosts applied pressure with attacking fields from the onset. Peppard&rsquos physically-imposing pace attack produced a lot of swing but struggled to make more than the initial breakthrough, with Birch and Speakman taking advantage of the wide open spaces to strike boundaries. The ball was then given to the slower bowlers who demonstrated skill and control in wrapping up the Sandhurst innings for 92. Jackson was the most successful of the bowlers and allowed Boughton to add to his earlier success with three sharp catches at first slip.

In Division 4 PEPPARD STOKE ROW 3rds had the better of their draw at BRADFIELD 2nds in a match that saw U15 George Lee produce an innings of maturity far beyond his tender years for the visitors.

Richard Atkinson ran through the Peppard Stoke Row top order until Lee and Mark Lambert established a fine sixth-wicket stand. Another mini-collapse saw the visitors in trouble, but the experienced Mick Chard coaxed youngster Lee into a final-wicket stand of 40 until the latter feathered a ball behind for 84 as the visitors were dismissed for 204 in 36.1 overs.

Buoyed by his success with the bat, the Oxfordshire age group player picked up an early wicket, and with captain Rob Dyer and Matt Ravden both picking up a brace apiece, as the visitors took control.

Archie Fritz made an unbeaten 83 in reply, but Bradfield were ultimately only able to reach 196-9 off 53 overs.
