Andover Cricket Club 4th XI (Sat) v Ampfield & North B II on Sat 17 Jun 2017 at 2pm
Andover Cricket Club Won 21 runs

Match report On a scorching summer's day, Ampfield turned up at London Road to take on Jay Mann's unbeaten 4th team. The Ampfield squad immediately noticed that the pitch was questionable/scary and inevitably raised an eyebrow or two. After it was pointed out that a successful negotiation of the facilities took place every week, events got underway.
The home side lost the toss and were surprisingly asked to bat first. Andover's young guns Crouch and Elliott began brightly, making light of any concerns about the track. Crouch (10)soon disappeared which brought Clackson to the crease. A flurry of boundaries pushed the score on and when Clacko (25) fell to a sharp slip catch, first Morton (8) and then Sheeraz (35) helped Elliott (30) to conjure a decent total of 153 all out. Not a disaster on LR2.
The Ampfield reply got off to a slow and steady start. More slow than steady really and apart from Garvey who batted forever, wickets fell regularly. Andover's bowlers were all in form but Sheeraz's 1 for 14 from 9 overs stood out. Brendan Clarke continued his excellent form, finishing with 3 more wickets and Emily Cox (next one from the Cox cricketing production line) bowled beautifully and was rewarded with a wicket. Ampfield were never anywhere near the required rate and despite Garvey's (47) best efforts, they finished 21 runs short of the Andover total.
