Bel­mont beaten

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

CRICKET BEL­MONT com­pleted their first sea­son in the Chess Val­ley League with an 11-run de­feat against Oc­to­pus CC at Kneb­worth House.

Jonny Ein­tra­cht was the star per­former with the ball for Bel­mont. He claimed fig­ures of 4-16 from eight overs to cap a fine first sea­son for the club as Oc­to­pus were dis­missed for 178. There were also wick­ets for Adam Mor­ris, Jonathan Evans and Josh Reynolds.

Bel­mont plum­meted to 70-5 at the mid­way point, with Aus­tralian Daniel Fru­mar hold­ing the in­nings to­gether.

The de­feat con­signed Bel­mont to the wooden spoon in Divi­sion Five and cap­tain Adam Jacobs com­mented: “It was a frus­trat­ing end to our league cam­paign, as it was a game that we un­doubt­edly should have won.

“It’s been a good year for the club, with new ad­di­tions off the pitch and some pos­i­tive play on it.”
