GRIFFINS GO INTO HALF-TERM WELL CLEAR
GOLDRIDGE Griffins go into the half-term break six points clear at the top of the Grant Thornton Premier Division.
Rob Thomson’s side made it four wins in four with a relatively comfortable win over 2mi Wanderers A, winning by 20 runs and 4-0 on skins count.
Young Declan Martel won the MVP honours and made his mark with both bat and ball.
He and Dan Le Messurier scored 41 in the first batting skin and the young leggie bowled tightly too.
For Wanderers, Matt Stokes and Tim Belton gave the side a decent enough start, but despite solid performances through each skin they fell just short of Griffins in comparison.
It was not all doom and gloom for Wanderers though.
With Olly Nightingale to the fore they edged out KPMG Vipers Legends by 13 runs.
With the skins shared two apiece the result came down to Nightingale’s efforts.
He scored 37 out of a partnership of 42 with Keith Le Cheminant.
Mark Adkins also had a decent game for the winners, while Jason Shambrook was the pick of the Vipers and took one wicket on his way to what surely will be a slow march on the magical 300 mark.
There was a fifth straight defeat for the Land of Green Ginger Pilgrims who again found batting a problem.
Opponents Specavers Wombats could do no better than 89, but Pilgrims started their reply with a minus seven score from openers Ed Lawrence and Arun White and were still negative on the board after the second skin.
The efforts of Chris Gnapp and Ben Fitchet came too late to save them, but at least they picked up a couple of skins along the way.
Adam Martel won the MVP honours with a big 44-point haul for the Wombats.
Goldridge griffins B are also going well and at the mid-session break lead in the Super 7s lead by eight points after four straight wins.
Toby White was star of the show in the 51-run win over 2mi Wanderers B, scoring 21 runs and taking seven wickets.
Ray & Scott Tick Tocks stay second after defeating Trinity Chambers Jazz Hats on the back of a fine individual show by MVP Matt Thornton.
In the the Business League HSBC Private Bank are running away with things and in registering a fourth win eased past Vagabonds.
Rob Thomson emerged MVP with 29 to his name, while James Coquelin scored 24.
Together at the top of the order, Thomson and Coquelin made hay, scoring 54 between them.
