Windsor 4th XI vs. Finchampstead 4th XI
Saturday 7th May 2005
Finchampstead 4 185-9
Windsor 4 189-4
Windsor won by 4 wkts
Windsor 4’s got their new Division 6 campaign off to a great start with a good win away at Finchampstead. Put into a bat on a hard and slightly green wicket, Finchampstead got themselves off to a flying start with Beale in particular in fine form. With only one seam bowler available, Windsor introduced their spinners into the attack, and both Scott Martin and Mark Lynes tied the batsman up and reduced Finchampstead to a competitive 185-9. 15 year old Mark Lynes was the pick of the bowlers with 5-42, his left arm off spin causing the batsmen all kinds of problems.
In reply Finchampstead got off to a perfect start reducing Windsor to 18-3, but solid batting from Scott Martin (71*), Rory Hannigan (53) and Tim Houghton (32*) saw Windsor home to a six wicket victory and 20 points in the bag.
