Vasey seals a sur­prise vic­tory

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Bucks cap­tain Ron Hedley won the toss and de­cided to bat and the Amer­sham Hill player prob­a­bly re­gret­ted that de­ci­sion three balls later as he was out for a duck and Fran­cis Bra­ganza was run out soon af­ter. But Ge­orge Nel­son put in a ster­ling per­for­mance bat­ting for 44.3 overs to end on 78no and with sup­port from Penn & Tylers Green duo Terry Bent­ley (27 no) and Steve Cole­man (13) they got to 175-6.

Bucks started well with the ball as Jim Spooner (2-20) and Dave Bur­ton (0-13) bowled their nine over spells straight through and Hamp­shire were only on 38-2 off those 18 overs.

Then Vasey took over on his home ground, which was host­ing its first county match, and with sup­port from Bent­ley (1-11), who took his wicket with his first ball, Roger Gar­rini (1-20) and Fran­cis Bra­ganza (1-19) and a run-out, Hamp­shire were all out for 119.

Mean­while, Bucks suf­fered a sixwicket de­feat in their Uni­corns Coun­ties Eastern Divi­sion match against Stafford­shire.
