Pool make it 3 in 3

Snd's ease past Bilton in one-sided affair

With mixed weather forecast, Cooey’s lads headed into North Yorkshire for their encounter with 3rd placed Bilton. The skipper won the toss and to the bewilderment of his opposite number elected to have a bowl on a track that looked to be in decent nick, if a little grassy.

Matthew Naylor and Jamie Wilkinson took the new ball, and the first wicket came with Jamie’s first ball, finding the edge of Dawson. The ball deviated off Cam’s gloves before Richard Carlton was able to snaffle it one-handed at full stretch at first slip. Jamie really settled well into the game and was giving nothing away, whilst Buzz was unusually struggling a little bit and soon gave way to Dan Hewer. The second wicket fell 50 runs later, with the left handed Ford, who had been struggling along for some time, flicking one off his legs into the hands of Oliver Eaves who almost made a hash of it, fumbling it at the first attempt and diving forwards to grab it second time round. Jamie was responsible for the 3rd wicket to fall, bowling the key man Walker for 39. 67 for 3 became 73 for 4 when Dan forced Heslop to play into the air for Will Cooper to collect. With Jamie’s miserly 15 overs up, Rupert Wyard came into the attack with the scoreboard continuing to trickle along slowly, and before long the 5th wicket fell thanks to a brilliantly athletic one-handed diving caught & bowled by Rupert from a full blooded drive to send Heptinstall on his way for 9. Rupe’s next wicket wasn’t quite so exciting but all the same brought about the demise of Styrin for 13, who could only glove one down the leg side for Cam to take an easy catch. Some late resistance from Cardwell and Bridson in the face of constantly tight bowling from Pool saw Bilton limp along to 126 for 7 from their full allocation of 50 overs.

After the Bilton Banquet, it was time for Pool to embark on what should be a relatively straightforward run chase. Standing in their way was a bowling attack that included the current leading wicket taker in the division, Simon Bridston. Will Cooper and Oliver Eaves took the honours of opening up and both adopted a positive intent from the off. Eavesy in particular was keen to exploit the short boundary with a couple of maximums over the clubhouse. The first wicket eventually fell with the score on 74 as Eavesy fell for 28, LBW to Bridson. This brought Mark Wilkinson into the middle, keen to kick start his season with the bat. Along with Coops, he helped move the score on at a decent rate and before long Will reached his second half century in as many weeks. Coops’ innings came to an end with the score on 105, coming down the track and giving the ‘keeper a simple stumping. Cooey was in at 4 and should have seen the game home, but failed to capitalise on a loose ball and could only chip it back to the bowler to fall for 8 with just 9 runs required. Richard Calton then joined Trev in the middle and that was the end of the drama as Pool eased past the total in just 24 overs.
