Guildford freeze out Chichester in Cricket Cup

05 June 2015

HALF-TERM, the weather, and something about an archbishop reduced the number of matches played in the Church Times Cricket Cup competition in this past week.

In the one match report we have received, Guildford played Chichester in Sussex in what were described as Arctic conditions.

Guildford won the toss and fielded, getting Chichester all out for 74. Top scorer was Heyes on 24. The bowling honours went to Taylor who took five wickets for just 12 runs in seven overs, and Martin, who took three wickets for 19, again in seven overs. In reply, the Guildford captain, Owen, scored 21 not out, accompanied by Thomas, 44 not out. Guildford won by ten wickets.

St Albans could not raise a team to play London. Among the reasons given was an impending visit by the Archbishop of Canterbury. London takes the points.

Similarly, Manchester was unable to collect a full team for its match against West Yorks, and conceded the points.

Chichester 74 all out (Heyes 24; Taylor 5 for 12, Martin 3 for 19). Guildford 75 for 0 (Thomas 44 n.o., Owen 21 n.o.). Guildford won by ten wickets.

Peterborough v. Leicester cancelled because of rain, points shared.
