3rd xi vs Worfield


The 3rd xi headed to the south of the county to take on high-flying Worfield at the picturesque Davenport Park.


After winning the toss and inviting the home side to bat first, things were going well for the 3rd xi as Jon Hughes (1-12) and Chris Fortune (2-31) opened well. James White (54*) provided the backbone of the Worfield batting well supported by Rob Handley (23) and Harvey Sage (15) in the home side’s total of 128-7 despite a good quality bowling and fielding display from the 3rd xi including Adam James chipping in with 3-32).


Unfortunately, that was about as good as it got for the 3rd xi as they were bowled out for just 47 in 26 arduous overs as many batsmen got themselves out. Jonathan Malpass was the only batsmen to get into double figures with extras being the top scorer with 13. James White completed a man-of-the-match display snaring 7-19 from 12 overs whilst there was also success for Jamie Grimsdale who finished off the game with 2 quick wickets in his only over.


A disappointing 3 point return for the 3rd xi at Worfield but hoping for better things next week as they return back to the BCG to take on Frankton.
