Thatcham Town Cricket Club Thatcham 2XI- Saturday v Falkland on Sat 29 Apr 2006 at 1.30pm
Thatcham Town Cricket Club Lost 8 wickets

Match report Falkland’s second string got the better of their Thatcham counterparts at Brownsfield on Saturday getting home by eight wickets with seven balls to spare.

Thatcham batted first and Iain Cottingham (21) and Chris Barnes looked solid as they put on 28 for the first wicket but they fell in successive overs to give the visitors the advantage. Daniel Stone and Paul Jenkins (22) then set about rebuilding the innings with a partnership of 61 before the latter fell to Boland. Martin Keep soon followed for 13 but Stone continued in fine form, reaching fifty from 76 balls.

Stone finally went for 73 but Robb Fraser ensured a decent total was reached, taking advantage of a short boundary to hit a quick 41 and with good support from Stephen Bartholomew (12n.o) Thatcham reached 206-8 from their 40 overs. Baig was the best of the bowlers, taking 3-26 from 9 overs.

The venerable opening pair of Chris Brown and Wilson Carlisle (55) then took the game away from Thatcham with a 129 run stand for the first wicket. Both profited from poor lapses by fielders and made the home side pay. Tim Mahoney bowled superbly for Thatcham without luck, finishing with 0-16 from his 10 overs, but the rest of the bowlers lacked control and gave up plenty of scoring opportunities.

Carlisle reached fifty first, soon followed by Brown, before 14 year old Tom Mahoney (1-24), bowling with more pace than his father, broke through in the final over of a very promising spell. Ben Thomas then helped Brown add 46 in 7 overs before he fell to Liam Redmond for 21. This was Thatcham’s final success however as the evergreen Andy Townsend and Brown took Falkland to a well deserved victory with the opener finishing on 90 not out.
