1st and 2nd Results - Week 8


Steeple Langford suffered their 2nd defeat on the bounce on Saturday, as they went down to the hands of Donnington.

After batting first, Langford set a total of 207-9, with Tom Bennett (67) and Martin Grearson (55) both hitting fifties for the visitors. However, after having their opponents reeling, a last wicket stand took Donnington over the line to claim victory with 7 balls to spare.

Langford’s 2nd XI dealt better as they hosted Trojans III. Langford started well, scoring quick runs, but were quickly pulled back by the young Trojans bowling attack. The hosts finished their innings on 194-8, 6 runs short of maximum batting points. However, this proved to be enough, as Langford restricted the visitors to just 101, Anish Joshi scoring 62 not out, in reply. Si Ford taking 4-30 and Chris Miles 4-24 for the hosts.
