Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Andy God­dard (18) and then a bel­liger­ent Kwat­sha took Chesham to 118 be­fore he also fell, leav­ing Mciver and France to fin­ish it with 18 overs to spare.

A re­mark­able game saw the 2nds emerge vic­to­ri­ous over Kid­more End by 26 runs, hav­ing been bowled out in a mere 26 overs for a pal­try 87, with ex­tras top scor­ing on 20 and Chris Roy­als con­tribut­ing an in­valu­able 19 not out.

To their credit, Chesham’s heads re­mained high and Kid­more wick­ets fell at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals to Peter Clif­ford (4-19 in 18 overs) and Roy­als (3-23) as they crawled to 387, be­fore Alex Wat­son (3-9) fin­ished them off for 61 af­ter 48 overs of at­tri­tional cricket.

The 3rds en­joyed their first win of the sea­son, beat­ing Ted­ding­ton Town by 82 runs, thanks to knocks of 78 from A Naik and 59 not out from R Shylen­drs, fol­lowed by Steve Ayres’ 4-17 and Mo Asuaf’s 4-61.

The 4ths com­pleted a clean sweep when Bri­tish Air­ways con­ceded their match af­ter fail­ing to get a team off the ground, while on Sun­day, Chesham won their open­ing Chess Val­ley League game against Finch­ley by 10 runs, Mark Eteen star­ring with a flu­ent 73.
