Hobbs and Pattison steer Langley through
LANGLEY 1st XI saw their weekend game away at Aston cancelled at the weekend due to early morning rain.
They remain in fifth place in Tacs League division three.
There was better news from Thursday night when Langley 1st XI progressed to the next round of the 20/20 Cup with a hard fought but in the end convincing win against a below-strength Woodford side, who were missing several key players.
Woodford elected to bat and Patrick Meese got them off to a flyer, hitting 22 off 11 balls.
The classy Gilliat (29) and in-form skipper Clinch (38) continued the good work.
But credit to the bowlers, especially Betteridge and Hobbs who stemmed the run rate and took key wickets.
Elms rallied to hit 22 from 11 balls as Woodford posted 149-7 off their 20 overs, Hobbs 2-22, Betteridge 1-24 and the back to form Patterson 0-18 off their four overs were the stand out bowlers.
They were backed up by Hanaghan (2-36) and a wicket each for Turner and Frame.
In reply, Langley lost Jacklyn (2) and Brown (14) early on to youngster Marsden.
With the game evenly poised, Hobbs and Pattison, after a steady start, took the contest away from Woodford.
They ran well of sorts and made use of the fast out-field and short boundaries adding 114 in just 12 overs.
With Pattison 64 not out and Hobbs 53 not our, the target was achieved off just 16 overs.
Credit to young Marsden who took 2-24.

Langley travel to Alderley Park in the next round.
