Good all-round per­for­mance by young Lee

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

ALEX Lee was the all-round star of Winch­more Hill’s David Shuttle six-a-side soft ball cricket tour­na­ment.

Four­teen clubs took part last week, but it was Lee who stole the show, with an all-bowled hat-trick and a host of bound­aries for the host U10s, who even­tu­ally beat Bea­cons­field by seven runs in the fi­nal.

In the two semi-fi­nals, Winch­more Hill had over­come Che­sham, and Bea­cons­field beat Amer­sham.

The U9s fi­nal was set­tled by a mar­gin of just five runs. High Wy­combe, who beat Wooburn in the fi­nal four, out­gunned Ballinger A, who had faced their own B string in the semis.

A fine un­beaten 104 by Steve Ban­ham was only enough to seal a draw for Winch­more Hill firsts (256-7) against Bray­wood (190-7) in Chiltern League Divi­sion Four.

In the same divi­sion, Amer­sham Hill sec­onds trail third-placed Lit­tle Mar­low sec­onds by one point af­ter los­ing to them by seven wick­ets, de­spite the valiant ef­forts of Ron Hedley (62) Dan New­ton (57) and Asish Pa­tel (36).

Hill only had 10 men and man­aged to make 241 all out, but their op­po­nents got the runs they needed with two overs to spare.

The first team re­main bot­tom of Divi­sion One af­ter they were beaten by three wick­ets at Taplow. They were bowled out for 151, Jor­dan Richard­son-Hill top­scor­ing with 47.

Else­where in the divi­sion, Den­ham fell to an 80-run de­feat against lead­ers Bin­field. They were set a tar­get of 231, but were dis­missed for 153.

There was bet­ter for­tune for fifth-placed Penn and Tylers Green, who bowled out Lit­tlewick Green for 110 and then claimed a three­wicket win (111-7).

And a fine 55 from Alan Hardy sealed a seven-wicket vic­tory for Chal­font St Giles against White Waltham as they chased down their op­po­nents’ to­tal of 157-7.

Great King­shill main­tained their lead in Divi­sion Two, with a two-run win over En­gle­field. Hav­ing amassed 203-5, they bowled out their ri­vals for 201.
