June 23rd- Away vs Stonesfield Won by 118 runs.
Back to league action and a solid win versus Stonesfield. After being put in on a typical Stonesfield ‘ road ‘ of a track Nick & Finbar took the game to the bowlers after a cautious start, putting on (probably) a record 201 for the first wicket Finbar bringing up his 100 the ball before Nick brought up his 50. After a flurry of late wickets Westcott closed on 304-6 with Finbar going for 117 and Nick closing on a splendid 130 not out.
In response Stonesfield started steadily without really troubling Westcot’s total, Finding wickets difficult to come by Westcott kept things relatively tight and despite some useful late hitting from the Stoney batsmen Westcott restricted their opponents to 186-7 off their 45 overs with 2 wickets apiece for Pete Stiles, James Bateman & Dave Hawes.
A cheap evening for the team resulted due to the rounds owed thanks to Nick & Finbar’s centuries, shame we didn’t stay for the 80’s night in the clubhouse afterwards. Lets keep the momentum going against Hook Norton next week.
