Played Saturday, June 2nd 2007

It was a case of deja vu for Itchington’s first XI as a good bowling display paved the way for victory.

The visitors arrived to find a wet and under prepared strip and chose to field upon winning the toss. After a wicket in the 2nd over the home side advanced the total slowly to 22 before a flurry of wickets saw the score slip to 35-6 (Jenkins 10).

Williams from no 7 batted doggedly and he and Harrison added 22 before another collapse to 56-9. Williams succumbed finally in the 44th over for a top score 20 with only 73 on the board and all 5 LI bowlers taking wickets. Brian Phillips (10-6-9-3) and Martin Clark (10-4-11-2) being particularly frugal.

With the pitch playing better Graham Foster (15) and George Insall (22) put on 39 before change bowler Bannister (10-4-22-3) began causing problems. Despite 18 from Aaron Jones there was a middle order wobble before victory eventually came by 5 wickets in the 36 over of a very low scoring encounter.
