Essex Boys Outraced
Pacific v Noak Hill CC at Noak Hill Sports Ground  Sat 02 Aug 2008 at 1pm
Won 70 Runs
Friendly fixture
 

The inaugural fixture against this Romford based club saw the inner London visitors opt to bat first on a freshened up lively green seamer with bounce. The better bowlers & better deliveries made things difficult but the away side kept wickets in hand & coupled with a dismaying amount of spurned chances by the home fielders & a little indisciplined change bowling acceleration was eventually possible.

Jon Webley & Chris Atkin scored more fluently than most & Peter Hollman kept his wicket in hand for those who could play fluently.

A rapid fire reply saw the Essex side well ahead early on on the comparative especially as Hollman dropped Hazle at slip 1st ball to the unlucky Alexander.

James Smith bowled a disciplined line & was generally unlucky beating the bat regularly but Jon Brown reaped the rewards of this bowling pair by picking up 4 wickets & showing excellent control whilst swinging the ball both ways.

Atkin then came back to impress with the ball before John Hill shone whilst showing how to clean up a tail with his slow left arm with 3 wickets in 9 balls & complete a comfortable win

XI:- Chris Atkin, Joe Bennett, Jon Brown, John Hill, Peter Hollman, Steve Lay*, James Smith, Darren Tempany, Jon Webley, Pete Alexander & Matt Holliday+

From B of E "Apologies, we're going to have to cancel the game on Saturday. With it being the start of the school holidays we've got a lot of players away. We've got no alternative but to cancel our 4th XI game. Apologies again, and I hope you have time to find an alternative fixture.
