THREE WEEKS BREAK AND VALLEY END SPINNERS DO BEDDO NO FAVOURS

by Chris Burton

Chasing down a total of 300 was never going to be easy for Beddington. However, Simon Lewis and Antony Down made a fine start and were scoring all around the wicket at more than four an over. The arrival of the spinners though slowed Beddo down considerably and when McElligott and Bevan were out in fairly quick succession, the task became mammoth. Graham Lester and Ryan Cummins rustled up a stand of 33 but with 4 batsmen stumped by Kingsnorth, the writing was on the wall. There was brief resistance by Dan Lewis and Richie Risebro but all out for 198 left Beddo 102 short.

A wicket for Ryan Cummins with the first ball of the match was a great start but "after the Lord Mayor's Show" came a stand of 114 between Paul Williams and Darren Redwood. We seemed to be bowling on both sides of the wicket for most of the innings and paid the penalty. There were lapses in the field and Beddo looked very much like a side that had not played cricket for 3 weeks - momentum appeared to have gone.

So Beddo must bounce back at home next week against East Molesey. I can't remember the last time we lost to these opponents. Yesterday's results mean that the chance for promotion is still there.
