Skipper Lay leads from front
Pacific v Chaseville at Oakhill Park  Sun 25-May-1997
Won by 49 runs
 

Under pressure to bat 1st by his batsmen, Captain Steve Lay did once he had won the toss.

P : 161-10. S Lay 44. T Mileham 32. Athey 16.3-3-53-7
C : 112-10. N Hintzon 41. A Palmer 8.4-1-13-4 R Brooks 3-1-8-4

Leading from the front a series of solid partnerships were made.4 consecutive ducks were not increased by Tim Mileham & Jonathan Hardisty was another to capitalise.

Athey bowled straight as Pacific looked to accelerate & was the most effective opposition bowler of the season to date.At 104-2 the Pacific bowlers did not look penetrative enough being confronted by the technique & flair of N Hinton but he was out to a well judged catch on the long on boundary by Jon Hardisty & turned the balance as Richard Brook's leg spin reaped his best bowling including a triple wicket maiden with 7 overs to spare.
