8 beats 9 at Ebernoe
Hot work on a Saturday
Waverley opted to bat first and soon lost skipper James Wright
, trapped in front, for 9. Another wicket soon followed before a partnership of 118 between Chris Beanland
and Simon Brewer
lifted the score into respectability. Ebernoe rotated their bowlers in the heat before Whittington claimed both batsman and the innings soon ended. After tea, the visitors began well with the early wicket of Boxall, well held at backward point by Malorie Short
. However, West and Clark replied with a 53 run partnership, before Short removed West. Andy Clark then went on to attack the bowling and was dropped twice before making his maiden century. More wickets fell but Clark remained and guided his side to victory in the last over.
