Match Report

Lyndhurst finally got their second victory of the season with a comfortable win against North Enfield.

Alfie made the mutual decision to field, and he and Kieran opened up with very good bowling spells on a boundary which was very punishing for anything off-line. Kieran picked up two wickets, including the dangerman "Apax" for 31 who is reportedly averaging over 100 with the bat this season. Running in with a peg-leg, Kurt took a superb low catch at mid-off. The first change bowlers Fuller and Liam showed what they were made of with very tight spells, including a wicket apiece. Lyndhurst's fielding was again very good, with James taking a stunning low catch at gulley. When JJ and the somewhat fatigued-looking Matthew came on, they shared five wickets in a short spell, and James also picked up a wicket in an encouraging spell to finish off the North Enfield tail for 106.

Alfie's struggles with the bat continued as he was dismissed early, but Jeff played the vital anchor role upon which any Lyndhurst win is founded. His 29 not out along with Fuller's 49 led Lyndhurst to a comfortable victory, despite Fuller getting bowled by Colonel Sanders with the scores level.

The team spirit shown despite the unfortunate results this season is excellent to see and it was a relief that a great fielding performance finally paid off. Hopefully as the season progresses Lyndhurst can build on this result and get back the winning feeling.

Weeks since Kev last dismissed: 12.
