Lewdown Cricket Club 1st XI v Yelverton on Sat 09 May 2009 at 14.00
Lewdown Cricket Club Won by 5 wickets

Match report Lewdown were absolutely delighted to overcome an up-and-coming and enthusiastic Yelverton side to maintain their winning start to the season. Captain Charlie Hughes won the toss and elected to field on a chilly afternoon and Lewdown started slowly as the opposition's openers saw off the initial overs. First change bowler, Kris Harris, broke the stubborn opening partnership after they had put on an impressive half century stand albeit assisted by an unhealthy amount of extras. Lewdown's bowlers then slowed the run rate down exceptionally well over the next 10-15 overs before some lusty blows from the middle-lower order helped Yelverton to a useful total of 176 all out. Kris Harris returned the best bowling figures for Lewdown with 3-37 in a spell that played a big part in keeping the scoring rate mangageable. Other notable bowling performances were Toby Street 2-36, Charlie Hughes 2-21 and a super return from 15 year old Ben Williams making his full debut for the first team with 2-22.

Lewdown's openers provided an excellent base for the innings with Kris Harris (20) and Justin Gliddon (41) batting superbly to nullify the opening attack. A very healthy run rate was maintained throughout the innings with Harry Geering (17) making another important contribution. A couple minor hiccups were overcome as Lewdown reached the target having lost 5 wickets, Toby Street having coming in at number seven to take the game away from Yelverton in a quickfire 32 not out with Carl Weeks watching from the other end. The match was played in an excellent spirit and Lewdown were very happy to come away with the maximum 20 points. Another tough encounter awaits them on Saturday when they travel to Kilmington. Lewdown Cricket Club wishes Ben Williams the best of luck when he attends his Devon trial on Wednesday.
