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.
