Whitwell (50 all out, Ashby 5-7) beat LILLEY (34 all out, Clarke 16) by 16 runs

I’m not really sure what else to say that the result doesn’t…Lilley won the toss and fielded.  Bowled Whitwell out for 50, with Ashby taking 5 for 7 off 8 overs and Matt Clarke and Ken Hammond chipping in with 2 wickets apiece.  Lilley should have cruised to the total.  But a combination of a lively wicket, an experimental batting line up and hap-hazard stroke play left Lilley in a crumpled heap, 34 all out and with very sore pride!

The game was hampered by the track, with all bar one wicket falling bowled or lbw.  No excuses though, just a shoddy effort.  Expect Markyate next week to feel the wrath of the Lilley return!!
