Sep 15th, Fenns Bank v Cae Glas

The first’s were at picturesque Iscoyd Park, and having won the toss had no hesitation in asking the home side to bat. It proved to be wise decision as a superb opening spell from Gaz Edgerton soon had Fenns in trouble as he took the first 6 wickets for only 18 runs in his 9 overs as they collapsed to 48 for 7. Only a hard hitting 53 from Tommy Leigh brought some respectability to the score as he and John Lloyd(30) nudged the score up to 153 before they were dismissed in the 36th over. Matt Coulson removing the dangerous Leigh and John Lloyd  for 23 runs in a fine spell.

In reply, an opening stand of 42 set the foundation for the run chase, led by Ian Holgate who capped a fine season with 63 to take the visitors towards the Fenn’s total. A stand of 53 with Barry Richards (20) looked to have got Cae Glas within  touching distance of victory, ad a flurry of wickets following the introduction of Tommy Leigh, temporarily threatened to undo Holgate’s good work. But solid defence from Dave Edwards and a cool head from Gaz Edgerton saw Cae Glas home with2 wickets to spare. Tom Leigh was the pick of the Fenns Bank attack as he took 3 for 31, supported by skipper Duncan Chaplin who weighed in with a brace to finish with 2 for 24.
