Evans an all-round star

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

JAMES Evans starred as Amer­sham Hill thrashed Taplow sec­onds on Satur­day in the Chiltern League.

Hill’s vice-cap­tain was al­most a one-man team as his cen­tury and five-wicket haul sealed a 101-run win.

His 105, sup­ported by skip­per Chris Fletcher (47) and Greg Mackenzie, car­ried the hosts to an im­pos­ing 288-4, a tar­get Taplow never threat­ened thanks to Evans’ 5-54.

The news was not so good for Hill’s sec­ond XI, who were thrashed by nine wickets by Di­vi­sion Four op­po­nents Winch­more Hill.

Penn & Tylers Green’s sides also had mixed for­tunes, Danny Lewis’s bril­liant 132 help­ing their first XI to an em­phatic 163-run win over Den­ham in Di­vi­sion One, while the sec­onds were skit­tled for 85 in los­ing by 146 runs at Pinkneys Green in Di­vi­sion 2.

Else­where in Di­vi­sion One, Chal­font St Giles’ firsts could only draw with Taplow, but their sec­onds won by 10 wickets at Lit­tlewick Green, rout­ing the hosts for just 49 thanks to 6-25 from cap­tain Simon Lan­caster.
