AMERSHAM 107 (Edge 28-4)

WINDSOR 110-5

Catches win matches

A superb bowling and fielding display in which seven catches were held by Windsor on Saturday ensured another win over a young Amersham side in their quest for promotion from Division 4b.

Losing the toss, Amerham elected to bat first on a damp track which was ideally suited for Windsor seamers Warren Griffiths and Chris Edge and it wasn’t long before the pair were making inroads into the top order. Edge removed both openers with the help of Oliver Birch at square leg, first taking a regulation catch to remove Haddock but then a superb diving catch low down to dismiss the dangerous looking Langley. Warren Griffiths got in on the act with a sharp caught and bowled and Richard Endacott remained the calmest player on the pitch took a steepler at mid on to remove Weston. From then on Windsor bossed the game and Amersham could never get started. Both Griffiths and Edge remained miserly as they were superbly backed up in the field and with the introduction of Oliver Birch who immediately picked up a wicket, it then became a formality for the wicket stealing Stuart Millman to then come on, once again when all the hard work had been done, and mop up the tail, taking 2 wickets in his 1.4 overs to dismiss Amersham for 107.

Another early dismissal of a side meant another tricky 18 overs to negotiate before tea and Windsor saw this through with just the dismissal of Abdul Ashraf. However sensible innings by Richard Noble, Rob Dawson and Richard Charters had seen Windsor to the brink of victory at 98-2 when they were visited by their old friend the ‘Windsor Wobble’. Making it’s first appearance of the season Windsor managed to slip to 100-5 making some of Amersham’s young players over react with some colourful language especially at the fall of Richard Charters wicket. The art of sledging however, somehow seem lost in the youngsters as being bowled for 107, on the brink of defeat and attempting to sledge a player who quite literally has scored more league runs at first XI level than they have had hot dinners will ultimately make you look foolish. They were not as vocal the next over as Tim Smith cracked a six and a four to wrap up the game for Windsor.

With OMT’s and Slough slipping up Windsor now move into the promotion places. They now have two massive games against Slough and then current leaders Bracknell to negotiate. It looks like it is going to be a grandstand finish to the summer. Hold onto your hats!
