Match report WCC v Little Marlow Sunday 25 July


Little Marlow chose to bat on a humid day that always threatened thunderstorms, but they never materialized.

Little Marlow lost early wickets and were tied down by Grogie, Nick Hill and Cormac who all bowled well. Highlights were Woody’s almost salmon like caught and bowled, eagles catch and Dave Hartley pouching a skyer. The WCC fielding was also characterized by 2 injuries to bowlers in the same over which meant that 3 people bowled 1 over which was a maiden- I’ve never seen that before! Little Marlow finally got to 123 all out off 34 . 3 overs

The Whitchurch reply was characterized by some classy blows by Woody and Nick Hill and we were flying along when Woody got out to a reverse sweep ( captains orders keep playing it Woody) we lost a few more wickets and it looked as if little Marlow had a chance but Ronnie and Grogie steadied the ship and got home winning by 4 wickets with 10 overs to spare.

Good fielding/ bowling performance today by WCC and we had a very nice beer with the Oppo afterwards at the ground as the sun came out!
