Walton CC Match report, played on the 3rd July 2011.

Westhay CC 49 ao lost to Walton CC 231-4 by 182 runs

Walton travelled the short distance to The Home of Cricket, Westhay CC's 'Muddy Lane' for a  Friendly on a stifling hot Sunday afternoon this weekend. Skipper S Higgins won the toss and chose to put Westhay into the field to face the brunt of the afternoon sun and the opening pair of J Cowling ( 50* ret) and O Ganfield 76 who put on 126 for the first wicket until J Cowling retired at drinks.  S Higgins (48*) joined Ganfield and marshalled the troops too a very respectable total of 231-4 off the 40 overs ending unbeaten with M Constanza (11*). 

Westhay started off slowly in reply with A Bendell (1-13) and Higgins (0-3) bowling very tight lines for the opening 10 overs. The 1st wicket coming as Higgins and Cowling combined well for a sharp run-out early on. M Cox (1-18) and Ganfield were then bought on 1st change with Ganfield producing a stunning display of spin bowling which tore through the Westhay upper, middle and lower order and gave him figures of (7 -17) off 5 overs.
