Match report 24th Aug

1st XI away to Lyndhurst & Ashurst

The Langford first team endured the traffic queues as they travelled to Lyndhurst yesterday.
Bowling first in the heat the opening bowlers Simon Ralph (0 for 12) and Chris Miles (2 for 19) kept things tight restricting Lyndhurst to just 36 for 2 off the first 18 overs. Runs started to flow a bit more easily thereafter but regular wickets stopped the home side getting too much momentum. Lyndhurst eventually scored 178 for 8 with Andy Bennett (2 for 32), Will Lewis (3 for 41) and a direct hit run out by Tom Bennett accounting for the rest of the wickets.
The Langford response was measured and controlled with runs coming at the required rate throughout. Simon Ralph (20) and Adi Hughes (19) led the way with useful contributions by Joe McNeilly (22), Tom Bennett (45) and Andrew Clarke (13). Andy Bennett (13*) and Will Lewis (30*) then brought the points home for a comfortable 4 wicket win with 4 overs to spare.
Good work on a hot day.
