Langleybury ease relegation worries with win against Watton-at-Stone
12:40pm Friday 31st August 2012 in Sport
Langleybury Seconds slightly eased their relegation worries with a six-wicket victory against Watton-at-Stone.
After winning the toss, Bury captain Matt Fry inserted their opponents. Bury bowlers Andy Stone (five for 17) and Ross Channer (four for 25) made quick work of the Watton order and bowled them out for just 70.
With darkening clouds looming, Bury eased to their target in just 14 overs. Bushey’s batsmen didn’t face a ball in their match against Hatfield Hyde as their game was abandoned. Hatfied won the toss and elected to bat.
Due to the rain earlier in the week the wicket was slightly damp but Hyde started off positively.
After 12 overs Farook Hameed was brought on to bowl to tighten things up. He helped dry up the runs and claimed the first Hatfield wicket with the score on 56.
Hameed bowled 17 overs in total and took another five wickets for 22 runs.
There was also a fine spell of bowling from Taimoor Maqsood, who consistently swung the ball to claim three for 27.
Bushey reduced Hyde to 120 for eight before the weather ended the afternoon’s play.
Chorleywood Seconds looked in a strong position against Old Haberdashers when their match was abandoned.
Lyndon Ryan had ripped through Habs’ top-order to take four for 41 and the home side were struggling with the score on 97 for five.
However, the rain fell and the match was ended meaning Wood are still not mathematically safe of avoiding relegation and still need to pick up at least one win from their final two games.
Kings Langley Seconds’ clash against Letchworth Thirds fell victim to the rain. Langley had dismissed Letchworth for 184 and Kings’ reply was at 13 for one in the fourth over when the match was abandoned due to the weather.
