Bideford v Lewdown Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 04 Jun 2011 at 14.00
Lewdown Cricket Club Won by 8 wickets

Match report Lewdown 1st XI travelled to Westwood Ho looking to continue their fine start to the season against Bideford.
Lewdown skipper Charlie Hughes, after winning the toss, and knowing the form the bowlers are in after bowling out Hatherleigh for just 36 last week, had no hesitation in bowling first. With regular opening bowler Phil Yeo unavailable the task of opening the bowling with the in form Rob Mutch was given to Kris Harris, once again the Lewdown bowlers soon got amongst the wickets with the prolific run scoring trio of Ford, Allin and South African Young all back in the pavilion with just 12 runs on the board, there was to be no way back for the home team as Harris bowled his allotted 13 overs without break and with the help of some superb catching finishing with the fine figures of 5-40. At 80-8 Rob Mutch was brought back into the attack and soon cleaned up the tail and continuing his good form with figures of 4-22. Bideford being all out for 96.
In reply, Lewdown had what could have been a tricky 35 minutes to bat before tea, but the solid opening partnership of Kris Harris and Harry Geering were untroubled, reaching 32 at the tea interval. The runs continued to flow after the break with Lewdown reaching 79 before Geering was caught for 4O, Harris, while suffering from cramp, was also caught for 41 with just 7 runs needed. Jack Skuse and Mark Jordan comfortably finished the job with some 30 overs left, Lewdown winning by 8 wickets and picking up the maximum 20 points.
It has been a great start for Lewdown , who have now won their 5 opening games of this season and top of the C division, 9 points clear of 2nd placed Clyst Hydon.

Next week is a home game against Kingsbridge with the match being sponsored by Wombat Sports and Wine Tasting in the pavilion from 2-4pm courtesy of North Coast Wine.
