Match Report - 1st XI vs Old Wykehamists 24th April 2016
By Liam Casey
Runs for Parry, opposition unable to reach their target on a bitterly cold day
A very cold first game of the season.
Batting first the HAC started brightly with M Edwards showing some early season form, on his way to 29. After a mid-order wobble it was the S Parry show... Scoring a brilliant ton, with shots all over the park, ending up on 137*. Ably assisted, at the end, by M Ralph, scoring a bustling 41*.
Declaring at half time and after a glorious tea provided by Christine the HAC set out to field..
The two young and enthusiastic opening bowlers (Edwards and Ralph) enjoyed a fiery, if not unsuccessful, opening partnership, it was just
too cold to bowl!
The OW's went along at a good rate, however, Parry / Borton bowled decent line and lengths and with C Edwards bowling a very good late spell, the game ended in a draw.
Special mention to Mike Ralph / Ed Borton on their debuts and Sean Parry for a wonderful 137 red.
