Andover Cricket Club 3rd XI (Sat) v South Wilts IV on Sat 11 May 2019 at 13:30
Andover Cricket Club Lost By 8 wickets

Match report Andover III began the season with a disappointing 8 wicket to South Wilts IV. Andover Captain Angus McMahon elected to bat first on a dry wicket, but their innings and season began in the worst way possible, losing opener Elliot to the first ball. It remained unfortunately downhill form there with the top order all struggling, against a strong bowling attack, leaving Andover in a hole at 22-5. Oli Crouch played a nice counter attacking innings to allow Andover to recover slightly, but they were ultimately dismissed for a below par score of 62 all out.

Andover bowlers knew they needed at least 2 or 3 early wickets to cause South Wilts any trouble. In reply South Wilts got off to steady start, playing with application and taking quick singles to ease the pressure. Young debutant Will Swinnerton, playing his first adult match got the first wicket via a superb catch by Josh Elliot. After this wicket, Andover sought to build pressure and Angus McMahon was duly rewarded for a tight spell with the wicket of Chaddock for 23. This proved to be in vain however and South wilts romped home to inflict a disappointing 8 wicket defeat on Andover.

The 3rds travel to Godshill next week looking to kickstart their season in earnest.
