Marlborough Cricket Club see off the Mayor's team in evening charity fixture

 

Marlborough Cricket Club XI (134-3) beat Marlborough Mayor's XI (79-10) by 55 runs.



Match report by Ed Puddick of Marlborough Cricket Club:

In front of a large crowd of families, who had earlier enjoyed a taster session of All-Stars and Kwik Cricket, Marlborough batted first.  They were looking to post a big target in the early evening sunshine on the Savernake Forest Ground.

Oli Whiteley batted very well before retiring for 25, out-scoring his opening partner, Paul Smith, who followed soon after retiring for 28.

Andy Crabbe, batting at number three, needed only 21 balls for his 25 before retiring. The late flourishes to the innings were administered by Ben Drewett (whose 18 included the only six of the innings) and Jamie Goddard, who was undefeated on 19 when the innings came to close.

Marlborough had scored 134 from their 20 overs.
  

After a quick drinks interval, the Mayor's XI got off to a flying start as two familiar faces from Avebury Cricket Club - Greg Dix and John Rheinberg - set about the chase.

The breakthrough came when Bradley Whatley bowled Dix for 11. Rheinberg retired when he reached 25, but a succession of quick wickets meant he would soon get a second chance.

Whatley finished with figures of three for 26 from his four overs while Jamie Goddard (3 for 12), Graham McDonald (2 for 5) and Arran Aujla (1 for 12) also chipped in with wickets.

However the best moment of the match was reserved for young Zak Tunmore, who claimed the wicket of his dad Jamie, caught by Oli Whiteley for a duck!

Although Rheinberg did return to the crease, he was dismissed for a fine 32 to close the innings with the Mayor's XI still 55 runs short of their target.

A fine victory for Marlborough and all in a good cause: the match raised £315 for the new Marlborough St Mary's Primary School - funds to buy cricket and other outdoor sports equipment for use on their new playing field.

 

Thanks to all the players and officials for contributing to such an enjoyable evening.

See you next year!
