Morgan’s ton gets Penn & Tylers’ sea­son off to a flyer

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

MARK Morgan’s cen­tury en­sured Penn & Tylers Green CC started the new Chilterns Cricket League sea­son in style on Satur­day.

Penn led the Di­vi­sion One ta­ble for much of last sum­mer but fell away to fin­ish fourth.

How­ever, they start this sea­son at the sum­mit af­ter beat­ing Wrays­bury by six wick­ets – Morgan scor­ing 113 af­ter Brad Hyde (3-27) and John Cock­croft (3-41) took three wick­ets each.

Newly-pro­moted Coleshill also got off to a flier in their new sur­round­ings, Martin Bam­bridge hit­ting an un­beaten half-cen­tury as they ham­mered Den­ham by eight wick­ets, but Chal­font St Giles lost by five wick­ets to Pinkneys Green, de­spite a half cen­tury (59) from Chris Cross, and 49 from Alex Heaney.

Rel­e­gated Amer­sham Hill started their cam­paign to bounce back with a two-wicket win over Wrays­bury 2nds to take top spot in Di­vi­sion Two, James Richard­son-Hill smash­ing an un­beaten 68, but Great King­shill, who also took the drop last sum­mer, went down by 72 runs to Chal­font St Giles 2nds.

Knotty Green, hav­ing switched over from the Mid Bucks Cricket League, started life in Di­vi­sion Three with a two-wicket win over Lit­tle Mar­low, thanks to knocks of 50 and 44 from Thomas and Ni­cholas Pa­tel and Mike Wid­dow­son’s 4-55.

Pro­moted Winch­more Hill had a com­fort­able start to life in Di­vi­sion Three, ham­mer­ing Penn & Tylers Green 2nds by nine wick­ets, with Qa­mar Aziz tak­ing 5-28 and Mike Price claim­ing an as­ton­ish­ing 4-5, but The Lee went down by three wick­ets to Coleshill 2nds.
