Wellesbourne Cricket Club Lost

Match report Champions Wellesbourne slipped to their first defeat of the season losing to last year’s runners-up Lapworth by five wickets in a low scoring game in a game reduced to 43 overs a side due to early rain. Lapworth won the toss and had no hesitation in asking the visitors to bat first but openers Myles Isted and Tommy Wheeler made a good start against some tight bowling from Sean Cross and Mark Hadden but with the total on 45, Isted was caught and bowled by Mark Hadden for 18. Wheeler and Jamie Maynard then took the score along to 64 before Wheeler (29) was bowled by Nick Spence and Maynard (12) followed soon after as Spence had him caught and bowled for 12. James Mason then had Darren Mole caught by Conway Mace and although Craig Cook and Travis Butcher tried hard to rectify the situation the last six wickets fell for only 21 runs. Hadden returned to have Cook caught by Mace for 13 and Butcher, who required a runner due to a leg injury, was then bowled by Cross for 15. James Tiffin then came on and mopped up the lower order taking the final four wickets, having Dave Barnett stumped by Joe Poulson, bowling Sean Hopwood, having Noah Rose caught by Cross and finally Andy Rogers caught behind by Poulson and Bourne were all out for 116 in the 42nd over. Tiffin finished with 4-10, Spence 2-21 and Hadden 2-42. In reply the home side were soon ticking the scoreboard along with Cross and Tiffin quick to punish any loose deliveries and it took a smart piece of work behind the stumps by Barnett to stump Cross off Reece Myatt for 19.Tiffin, with the help of James Buckle, kept going before the introduction of Hopwood and Mole began to bring Bourne back into the game. With both bowling very well they stemmed the run rate and Mole struck having Buckle caught behind by Barnett for 15 and when Hopwood had Poulson lbw, Lapworth were 68 for three. Nine runs later Hopwood had Tiffin caught by Isted for 33 and when Mason went lbw to Mole Lapworth knew they were in a game on 80 for five. However, Glen Cooke (13 not out) and Chris Turner (16 not out) steadied the ship and with solid batting took their side home to a five-wicket win with nine overs remaining. Mole 2-14, Hopwood 2-22 and Myatt 1-31. Bourne will need to show more application in their batting if they are to retain the championship this season and Lapworth will be hoping this is the springboard to success as they attempt win the league for the first time.
