THAMES VAL­LEY LEAGUE DI­VI­SION ONE Kew Che­sham 196 all out

197-5 BROTH­ERS Matt and Jason Rance both hit half-cen­turies to guide Che­sham to a five-wicket win at Kew on Satur­day.

A good all round bowl­ing dis­play led to the dis­missal of Kew for 195, while in re­ply Andy Gre­gory joined the Rance sib­lings in smack­ing a half­cen­tury to en­sure a com­fort­able vic­tory.

The sec­onds also beat North Maiden­head by five wick­ets, Chris Royal’s dev­as­tat­ing spell of leg spin (6-48), backed up by David Hughes D’Aeth (4-25), dis­miss­ing Maiden­head for 213.

D’Aeth then went on to hit a flu­ent 51 in Che­sham’s re­ply and was well sup­ported by Chris Mor­ris and Max McIver, who both scored 47, be­fore a calmly built half-cen­tury part­ner­ship be­tween Graham Rance and Richard Gre­gory saw them home to go sec­ond in Di­vi­sion 2a.

The thirds went top of Di­vi­sion 5a and took brag­ging rights with vic­tory over Amer­sham thirds, rac­ing to 230-5 thanks to a skil­ful part­ner­ship of 159 be­tween Mark Hall (68) and Mo Asuaf (95no), be­fore Jack Gib­bins (5-41) helped dis­miss Amer­sham for a mere 109.

How­ever, de­spite declar­ing on 268-6, Kaaran Deepak top­scor­ing with 81, the fourths could not quite claim vic­tory over Amer­sham fourths, who man­aged to cling on for a draw at 137-9.

Mean­while, next week’s Cricket Week at Che­sham will see the club take on a Chair­man’s XI (Tues­day), a Kevin Beau­mont XI (Wed­nes­day) and a Wine Trade XI (Thurs­day), fol­lowed by a T20 game against Che­sham Stags RFC (Fri­day).

There will also be a women’s game against Ick­en­ham on Tues­day evening.
