CHILTERNS CRICKET LEAGUE DI­VI­SION FOUR Amer­sham Hill IIs 214 all out Den­ham IIs 218-6 AMER­SHAM Hill sec­onds skip­per Sam Bug­den re­turned from hol­i­day in the West Indies in the early hours of Satur­day and scored his first ever 50 a few hours later – but it was not enough to halt his side’s los­ing run.

Hav­ing won the toss and opted to bat, they were soon in trou­ble at 38-4, un­til a fine in­nings of 75 from Bug­den and 33 from Luke Saun­ders helped Hill reach 214 all out in the 50th over.

But it was to be a tale of dropped catches as Den­ham’s Am­brose Treacy was dropped on no less than four oc­ca­sions, as he scored the match win­ning in­nings of 123 not out.

He was sup­ported by Colin Tobin (50), as Den­ham won with overs to spare to go top of the ta­ble, with pre­vi­ous lead­ers Winch­more Hill not in ac­tion.

Strug­gling The Lee lost by four wick­ets to Chal­font St Giles sec­onds in Di­vi­sion Three, while Coleshill beat Wrays­bury sec­onds by the same mar­gin in Di­vi­sion Two and Hill’s first team beat Hur­ley by two wick­ets.

Di­vi­sion One lead­ers Penn & Tylers Green ham­mered ti­tle ri­vals Bin­field by 120 runs while Chal­font St Giles drew with Holy­port, but Den­ham firsts and Great King­shill both lost by four wick­ets, to Taplow and Wrays­bury re­spec­tively.
