2s Keep Hopes Alive

Seaford 2s 125-4 beat Ansty 2s 124 all out by 7 wickets

Seaford kept alive their hopes of moving off of bottom spot going into the last week of the season with a comfortable victory over Ansty 2s.

Ansty called the toss correctly and elected to bat first on glorious breezeless, sunny day at The Salts. With Seaford at full strength for first time all season they were hopeful of getting into a slightly under strength Ansty team. Early doors that was the case with Zak Hearsey picking up three early wickets, all clean bowled, including the prolific Jonny Young, not prolific today. Hearsey softened him up with a short ball then ripped through a tentative defensive stroke next ball to rearrange his stumps. A crucial wicket and a great start by Zak (3-40) backed up by some superb swing bowling by John " Paddy " Smith (2-14). Some dispatching of loose balls followed, in particular by Lucy Western with a well made 34, before Seaford young slow bowling duo Max Wright and Isaac " Bashy " Bashir with two wickets apiece went through the lower order, with time for veteran John Smith to come on and finish the innings off.

Almost faultless fielding display by Seaford backed the bowlers up, just Ben Brown grassing a chance at 1st slip after trying to talk the ball into his hands, this method worked a bit later when Ben held onto two outfield catches.

Seaford went out to bat before tea determined to chase down the score with little alarm, a dropped catch off the first ball of the innings helped Seaford achieve this. The early loss of Jonty Reynolds for 9 bought Ben Brown in to join forces with Patrick McCaughan (48) who both batted patiently in a partnership of 68. When Brown went, clean bowled for 37, this bought the inform Ollie Harvey to the crease who calmly guided Seaford through to the victory with the help of Deiniol Cummins, who hit the winning boundary.

Great victory for Seaford today, great team effort well done all. Lets hope one more victory like this next week, away to Rye, gets us off bottom spot.
