2nd XI v Michelmersh & Timsbury II away

Mich & Tims 200 for 5 - SLCC 202 for 2

Another good win for the Steeple Langford 2nd team yesterday. Michelmersh & Timsbury chose to bat first and scored 200 for 5 off their 40 overs. The Langford bowling was better than the score suggests with numerous edges, false shots and dropped catches. Five of the six bowlers used taking a wicket each.
In reply, Tom Stobbs (75) and Chris Miles (35) put on 105 for the first wicket by the 20 over drinks break. This left Will Lewis (48*) and Tony Gipson (14*) to bring home the bacon in the 35th over for an emphatic 8 wicket win.
