Old Suttonians HOME

It’s a Dominick Day

Swyncombe lost the toss against Old Suttonians and made hard work of some good early bowling by Gulzal and Curtis. Half Centuries by openers Clive Dominick 50 and Goodall who batted throughout for 68 eventually helped push the score to a defendable 163 for 5.

 After a fast scoring start Old Suttonians found themselves 39 for 3 with Gulzal and Curtis back in partnership. A quick fire stand of 73 off 10 overs put Old Suttonians in a match winning position before Goodall bowled Gulzal for 35 and Bailey had Curtis caught on the boundary 5 overs later for 68. With 19 required off 9 overs, the introduction of 13 year leg spin bowler Keith Dominick with 3 wickets for 15 runs brought about an Old Suttonian collapse to 156 all out.

Cholsey AWAY

Hope shone in the Rain!

On a showery Sunday afternoon in Cholsey, Hope returned to the Swyncombe side after finishing his Biology degree at Exeter University, putting in a good performance with bat and ball.

Cholsey won the toss and elected to bat on what can only be described as an interesting wicket! Cholsey opener Haigh batted well until an athletic one handed, diving catch by Regent at extra cover halted his advance before reaching his half century. Swyncombe bowlers continued to bowl well through the innings and eventually Cholsey were all out for 128. 

After tea Swyncombe made steady progress and reached 89 for 3 off 22 overs. Everything looked on track for a comfortable victory until some middle order madness, in which Swyncombe lost 4 wickets for 8 runs. Hunt steadied the ship and Holder held on to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with 10 balls remaining.

Sydenham AWAY

Goodall takes crucial wicket!
Swyncombe won the toss and elected to field on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Lewknor, the new home of Sydenham CC. Swyncombe walked out on to the pitch and typified a village cricket team with a 50 year age gap between the youngest and oldest players. The Sydenham openers batted steadily until Trinder took a wicket in a maiden
Unfortunately for Swyncombe this unleashed Lang for Sydenham who hit 58 runs in quick succession including 4 fours and 4 sixes. It was only the tempting spin bowling of Goodall that eventually trapped Lang and halted the Sydenham boundary onslaught. Sydenham ended their allotted 35 overs on 148-8. Swyncombe’s star performer bowler was Trinder, 7 overs, 4 maidens, including 2 wicket maidens, 3 wickets for 14 runs.

If Goodall provided the match turning wicket, Domnick and Bayley provided the match winning partnership, scoring 102 before Domnick retired with an injury after hitting a half century. Bayley went on to score 63 not out and would certainly get my vote for man of the match, as he usually bats lower down the order!
