Damp squibs Che­sham lose their un­beaten record

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

An­other pul­sat­ing fin­ish saw the 2nds beat North Maiden­head by a sin­gle wicket off the penul­ti­mate ball, although had Che­sham not let their vis­i­tors off the hook at 25-5, it would never have got that far.

Maiden­head even­tu­ally reached 210-9, Peter Clif­ford tak­ing 6-56, be­fore a strong opening part­ner­ship of 65 be­tween Bren­dan O’Dono­van (30) and Tom Free (33) was fol­lowed by a 63 be­tween Chris Hedges (17) and Ed Turner (43).

The in­nings then sub­sided to 183-9 with only two overs re­main­ing, be­fore pow­er­ful hit­ting by Jack Gib­bins (42no) and Jamie An­der­son saw their side home with a ball to spare.

But the 3rds lost by three wick­ets to Cran­bourne, de­spite Gra­ham Rance’s un­beaten 69 and Joseph Rance’s 3-34, while a valiant rear­guard in­nings by young Raheem Mo­hammed earned the 4ths a draw against Farn­ham Royal.

In Divi­sion 2a, strug­gling Che­nies & La­timer lost by seven wick­ets to Maiden­head & Bray, while in 2b, Bea­cons­field went down by 61 runs to War­grave.
