This week it was the 2nd team who shone, as they put on a convincing performance against Thame Town CC. Nick Solway (pictured left) top scored with a fine half century as Westcott batted patiently in the earlier overs, conserving wickets and reached 177 for 8 in their allotted overs, on a glorious sunny summers afternoon.

 

The pace seam bowling of Lakmal Perera was the key to unlocking the Thame innings, who took five quick wickets in a five over spell that ripped through the potentially stubborn batting line up, Lakmal finishing with excellent figures of 5 for 16, ensuring a comfortable victory for the team, who find themselves mid table with four fixtures remaining.

Not so good for an under strength 1st XI this week, who were bowled out cheaply at Leighton Buzzard CC,  wicket keeper Ivan Fernando top scoring with 29 runs. Leighton Buzzard knocked off the modest total for the loss of only 3 wickets, despite some tight bowling from Nick Thomas, who also grabbed a couple of wickets. The 1st XI also find themselves mid table with four fixtures remaining, so a solid season so far for both teams to date.
