Wadworth 63 all out

Lea Park 64 for 0

The pleasant setting of Wadworth Village Green was the background for a comprehensive Lea Park victory on Saturday.

On a very sporting wicket, Matt Housham has no hesitation in inserting the home team, and it proved a very successful decision

Andy Slater clean bowled one opener to set the scene for Andy Orton to take another five wicket haul, this time claiming 5 for 10 as Den Law took 3 for 6.

This left the home side 63 all out inside 31-overs.

Julian Clarke produced catch of the season so far at short mid off, but Andy Dewick took a couple of decent catches of his own at slip as part of a good all round fielding performance, backed up some useful bowling a difficult track for batting.

Hard graft for Chris Needham (42*) and Lee Mardle (18*) was necessary with the wicket making the ball do tricks, but after they settled the game was never in doubt and Lea ran out easy winners without losing a wicket.
