THE highlight of Cricket Week at Chesham CC was a sixwicket win over a Bucks CCC Select XI picked by Kevin Beaumont.
Chesham veteran Beaumont, who is also honorary secretary for the county side,ide is celebrating 50 years of umpiring and to mark the achievement, he brought a team of Bucks players past and present to The Meadow.
Matt Eyles (High Wycombe) scored 87 off 54 balls and Graeme Paskins (Marlow, pictured) bagged an excellent 115 off 84, while a late 37 off 15 by Jason Harrison (Beaconsfield) led to a declaration at 273-5 from Beaumont’s team on a damp wicket.
The pitch had dried out for Chesham’s reply, which was led by former Chesham player and current Middlesex CCC professional Tom Helm, who hit an excellent 112 from 69 balls, while Jack McIver’s unbeaten 77 also helped Chesham win by six wickets on 279-4.
