Cap­tain Car­roll fan­tas­tic

Frim­ley ..................... 145 Ri­p­ley ................... 146-4

Aldershot News & Mail - - CRICKET -

CAP­TAIN David Car­roll be­came Frim­ley’s high­est ever run scorer af­ter a week­end of mixed emo­tions at Chob­ham Road.

Car­roll sur­passed Alan Try’s long-stand­ing record of 20,221 runs with a huge six on his way to an im­pres­sive 85 as the Mighty Geese recorded a thrilling two-run vic­tory against Hawk­ley in a friendly on Sun­day.

But how he wished his runs had come 24 hours ear­lier as his Frim­ley side crashed to a heavy six-wicket de­feat to league lead­ers Ri­p­ley.

Asked to bat first, the Geese strug­gled to find any kind of rhythm through­out and de­spite the odd flurry of bound­aries were even­tu­ally skit­tled for just 145 in 43.1 overs.

Frim­ley’s hopes of grind­ing out vic­tory were boosted by two wick­ets in the space of three overs as Ri­p­ley started their re­sponse ten­ta­tively.

But the vis­i­tors soon got into their stride and soon made light work of the run chase, even­tu­ally reach­ing their tar­get in just 24 overs.

Record breaker: David Car­roll
