Fly­ing Amer­sham Tham­ing the rest

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MARKET PLACE -

They made short work of Thame Town, who had in­serted them with rain around.

Ed Bow­cock and Bruce Frid­erichs pro­vided the ideal start, though, in adding 42 and a se­ries of con­tri­bu­tions down the or­der were led by skip­per Andy Viney, main­tain­ing his fine form with a bat­tling 64, be­fore the weather cut short pro­ceed­ings at 45 overs.

That left Thame’s tar­get at 234 but they were con­strained by a tight start from Alex Lines and Sam Helm.

In­roads came from Maduka Liyana­p­athi­ran­age (4-36) while Stu­art Rogers not only fin­ished with 4-22 but claimed three catches too as the re­ply was wrapped up in 39.4 overs, main­tain­ing the 100% record.

The only other Divi­sion Two match to fin­ish was Che­sham’s win at Shipton un­der Wy­ch­wood. The vis­i­tors were mov­ing along nicely at 132-3 from 30 overs, Matt Rance (31) and Luke Webb (50) pro­vid­ing early sub­stance, be­fore the first of sev­eral heavy storms forced off the play­ers for three hours.

A tar­get of 153 in 20 overs was set but Shipton never got go­ing against Ja­son Rance (2-9) and Pip France, fin­ish­ing at 128-5 to give Che­sham their sec­ond win in as many games.
