Andover Cricket Club 2nd XI (Sat) v Locks Heath on Sat 28 May 2011 at 1:00pm
Andover Cricket Club Lost By 20 Runs

Match report Andover 2nd XI suffered a bitterly disappointing defeat at the hands of Locks Heath, last Saturday at London Road.
Under overcast conditions, opening bowlers Mike Adams and the returning James Knight set the tone with an exhibition of seam and swing bowling. Knight was particularly impressive, only conceding 4 runs in his first six overs. With Dan Turner removing the dangerous Boyd in his second over and with James Duckworth also bowling a great line and length the town side kept the hosts under the cosh up until the drinks break. The introduction of Barry Blackburn proved key as he bowled with great skill to take four wickets in a hostile spell which accompanied by some superb fielding and good catching by James Knight maintained the pressure. However, Locks Heath rode their luck at the end to eek out 205 for 6 off their 50 overs. Andover can be proud of their fielding and bowling to restrict a good batting side to a very achievable score.
Despite losing Andy Sale early on to a cracking inswinger from John Paskin, Jack Andrews (43) and Matt Knight began to look comfortable. But when Knight was controversially run out after being encroached by the bowler, wickets began to fall at regular intervals. The only real resistance was shown by Blackburn (33) and Dave Webb, who batted with the tail and looked to be edging the town side to a nailbiting finish. Unfortunately Webb was caught on the boundary for 35 with the town side 20 runs short.
The Seconds will be hoping for a better return tomorrow, aganst Waterlooville.
