Abberton Vs Felixstowe

By

Gameweek 4

Abberton won the toss and chose to bat, after a week of heavy downpours, the pitch had coped very well and provided a good surface to bat on despite early movement from the new ball bowlers. Hunter Elliston got the first breakthrough bowling Aaron Trussler through the gate before a good partnership between Joe Earley and Matthew Sullivan with some big shots took Abberton to 87-1 despite some good bowling by Hunter Elliston and Charlie Hitchen, followed up by a good spell by Matt Flecknoe unfortunate not to take a couple of wickets.

Some good bowling and some poor fielding cost us with more early breakthroughs with 4 drops going down in the first 23 overs. Kyle Jay got the breakthrough of Matthew Sullivan with a rash shot just before drinks. The drinks break helped and Kyle got the big wicket of Richard Moxon for a duck (has it ever been seen before?) before having David Schofield caught behind to pull Abberton back to 92-4.

A good partnership saw Abberton reach 147-4 before two run outs and a vastly improved fielding performance in the second half the innings pulled Abberton back to 165-9 before some lower order hitting by Chris Pettit allowed Abberton to reach 190-9 off their 45 overs, a score very achievable at Abberton. Kyle Jay the pick of the bowlers with 15 overs, 2 maidens, 4 for 51.

Felixstowe started their run chase in difficult fashion with a good opening spell by Will House and Bradley Mann made it difficult for the openers before Will House had Kyle Jay caught behind for 13. A 51 run partnership between A.Hopkins and M.Lawrenson took the team to 72-1 before a wicket before drinks again.

Felixstowe reached 133-3 before poor shots and decision making then allowed wickets to fall at regular intervals leaving us falling 29 runs short of the total. Contributions from M.Lawrenson (60), M.Lloyd (22) & A.Hopkins (15) however none went on to finish the job leaving Felixstowe with 7 points from the game played in good spirits.

Felixstowe next take on Long Melford at home on the 18th May at Fortress Dellwood Avenue.
