CRICKET

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

SEEVENT OVER 60S COUNTY CHAM­PI­ONSHIPS Kent IIs 245-3 Bucks IIs 197-7 NOT even a fine half cen­tury from Hawridge & Choles­bury’s Brian Ralphs could save Bucks Over 60s sec­onds from de­feat to Kent at Amer­sham Hill last Wed­nes­day.

Kent won the toss and elected to bat and although the Bucks bowlers kept it very tight early on, they even­tu­ally reached 245-3.

Bucks then had Brian Ralphs to thank for an ex­cel­lent open­ing knock of 58 as wickets fell around him, and while Derek Pock­nell hit a quick 25, the hosts had fallen be­hind the rate at 122-7. Amer­sham Hill’s Ron Hed­ley (31no), to­gether with Jim Spooner (39no), put on an un­beaten 75 for the eighth wicket, but it was not enough for victory as Bucks ended on 197-7.
