2nd xi vs Newtown


The 2nd xi headed into Wales to take on Newtown looking to maintain their stranglehold over the league leaders position with only 3 games to go in 2014.


Invited to bat first, the 2nd xi lost James Plant and Paul Bolland, the previous weeks run-getters, cheaply before Matthew Jones Jnr and Ricky Davies came together to build a big stand for the 3rd wicket. Davies eventually fell for 61 then the wickets tumbled as the 2nd xi were left on 219 for 8 with Jones Jnr carrying his bat for 73* in an innings that also saw 69 extras including a staggering 50 wides.


In reply, Andrew Oliver bowled Callum Foulkes for 0 to get the reply off to a great start for the 2nd xi, but then Danny Foulkes (48), Matt Humphreys (47), Hywel Gwynne Thomas (29*) and Mike Bellamore (66) all contributed to Newtown’s 208-5 as both teams walked away with a draw. The big difference was the extras tally with only 17 given away by the 2nd xi in a reasonably disciplined display.
