Hackney CC report (as per NELCL) below. Would be good to have one of our own!

 

Jug avoidance reared its ugly head again at Springfield park on Saturday, where Hackney CC and Pacific CC played out the final group game of a truncated 2020 season.

 

With Pacific skipper Ben Stockton backing his bowlers and inserting Hackney to bat, the Hackney opener Ollie Wrighton was the guilty party, knocking a sparkling innings in short order, only to be caught in the deep on 99. A bit blue for Wrighton, but it proved to be a worthy and winning contribution, and set up Hackney’s middle and lower order for their own six-hitting competition with Zandy Macdonald, Ross Collington and all-rounders Jotham Tonge and Simon Trevethick seeing who could cause the most mayhem to unsuspecting passers-by with the long handle. 

 

Chasing a daunting target of 285 to win, Pacific’s reply struggled to get off the ground amid a tight opening bowling partnership between Craig Raddon (0-29) and Simon Trevethick (3-20) who both bowled straight through their overs with no let up for the incoming batsmen. Hackney stalwarts Jotham Tonge (4 for 33) and Laurence Perry (1 for 20) then continued to tighten the screw on a deteriorating wicket and whittle away the Pacific middle order cheaply. Despite a late rear guard effort from the ebullient Nick Epstein (37*), the innings was wrapped up in the 38th over for 150 runs, giving Hackney a clean sweep of their group games this season.
