Horsley & Send overcome Waverley

Waverley lose by just 14 runs against Horsley & Send

With the team very much geared towards bowling, it was no surprise to see the visitors fielding first. Harris and Du Gay opened the attack and it was Du Gay who got the early breakthrough, the opening batsman spooning the ball to Harris at fine leg. Du Gay returned the favour a few overs later when he pouched the home side's overseas player, also at fine leg, off the bowling of Harris who added a second wicket to his haul with a successful LBW shout. With the grumpy quicks bowled out P Brewer and A Carmichael came on as first and second change and Brewer snaffled three wickets, including a generous LBW and a catch in the deep by Du Gay. Carmichael, on the other hand, found himself cursing the Laws of the Game for only allowing matches to be eleven aside as chances either dropped short or lobbed through gaps in the covers. He therefore maintained his record of never having taken a wicket at Horsley. The introduction of Waverley's Whirling Herbish H Scarth yielded further wickets, one batsman being undone by the turn and the other holing out to A Day in the covers. C Ryan replaced Mr Brewer and also helped himself to a wicket with a looping caught and bowled. However, despite being five down for less than 100 at one stage a valiant knock in the middle order steered the home side to a competitive 193-9 after 40 overs. A good all round performance by Waverley's bowlers and fielders should also be acknowledged.

A philosophical A Day summed up Waverley's batting performance pretty succinctly: "an inability to form partnerships". Opening pair Day and Wright put together an opening stand of sixty five before Day was undone by a straight one, the scourge of the Waverley batsman. S Vass was then dealt a massive dose of bad luck when an inside edge onto his pads rolled onto his stumps. Having been dropped once at deep square leg, captains S Brewer chanced his arm again... and was promptly caught by the same fielder. Wright made sixty odd before he too holed out, a very confident catch at cow corner. Despite the wickets tumbling, the scoreboard was ticking over. C Ryan ably supported J Harris before playing around a straight one and Du Gay was a little disappointed at edging one into the slips for no score... but not nearly as disappointed as Harris was a couple of overs later. Having made a valuable twenty, he tried to call P Brewer through for a quick single to short fine leg. Mr B promptly sent him back and Harris was run out, resulting in one very livid cricketer (even though he was the only one in the ground who thought there was a run there). Warren Vass followed up a good performance in the field with a brief, yet encouraging cameo with the bat. A Carmichael was then stumped attempting a big mow over mid-on and in the penultimate over, P Brewer's resistance was brought to an end on 22 when he was bowled and Waverley fell a few runs short of victory
