Old Suttonians HOME

Swyncombe too good for Old Suttonians

Swyncombe won the toss and elected to bat in this 40 over match. A superb batting wicket on a glorious day in the Chilterns gave Swyncombe every opportunity to score some good runs.  The partnership of 171 runs by Goodall and Bailey put Swyncombe in a commanding position. Goodall added another 50 runs with Hope finishing 13 runs shy of his century. With plenty of wickets in hand Hope and Percival’s flamboyant batting display added 104 runs in the last 10 overs, setting Old Suttonians a target of 287 runs.

Old Suttonians started briskly and after 10 overs matched the Swyncombe score at the same over period, but Old Suttonians hadn’t prepared for Keith Domnick, a 15 year old Gillott’s student, ripping through the Old Suttonians batting order to leave him on figures of 8 overs 3 maidens, 4 wickets for 11 runs. A dropped catch by Regent denied the young spinner a 5 wicket haul. Not to be out done, his father cleaned up the Old Suttonians’ tail taking 3 wickets for 10 runs. Day took the last wicket to end their innings on 103 all out. A fantastic bowling performance from father and son.
