Wood Street chase down Brewers at JCG

At 18-2 Alton were thinking that perhaps batting first may not have been the option on a bright sunny day at the JCG. Any thoughts though of a low target were put aside as Will Roberts and Martin Green put on an 84 partnership for the 3rd wicket. The Wood Street bowlers served up a bad ball an over and as Roberts tired his shots become more expansive. Marshall (4) followed Green (22) back to the pavilion after a checked drive which brought Steve Ball to the crease. Once Roberts (86) was dismissed, Ball (42) was joined by Billington Jnr, who played some lovely shots, and then Wills and Trim to build what looked a competitive target of 200. The Wood Street chase was dominated by the left hander Andy Grist with no one else in the top 7 reaching double figures; Grist role his luck as he was first dropped off Litton, then again off Connolly and then off Billington – when it is your day you have to make the most of it! – and that is precisely what Grist did, scoring 70 before being bowled by Steve Ball. The youngsters in the Alton bowling attack were all impressive – Bridger 6-0-26-2, Litton 7-0-29-3, Connolly 9-0-53-1 as was the control of Trim 9-1-20-1; it was though the youngsters of Wood Street that played the last card – Daniel Bow (37) and Dan Grist (19) putting on an unbroken 9th wicket partnership of 43 to see the game home for Wood Street – great game, played in a lovely sprit.
