1st XI roll on.

11th June 2011

Steeple Langford I-153 for 3 vs Hursley Park 152 for 7 On a patchy afternoon in Steeple Langford the toss was conceded by skipper Tom Dennis and Langford took to the field. Looking to make inroads in to the Hursley park batting order the opening bowlers found it tough going and when a break through eventually came via a run out Hursley Park were 53-1 after the 28th over. Another run out accounted for the second wicket soon after but Hursley were determined to protect their wickets and Gary Smith 2-26-8 and Simon Ford 2-27-5 were the only highlights as Hursley 4ths posted for 152-7 from their 42 overs. Steeple Langford's reply began well with the inform fall of Stuart Partridge (29) and Tom Bennett (31) putting on 59 for the first wicket. A breezy 34 from Simon Ford brought Langford within reach of the line but when he was dismissed with the score 113-3 it was left to Phil Tompkins to cross the line for Langford moments before the rain.
