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

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.
