Windsor 4th X1 180 for 8 (48.1 Overs) S.Martin 117*

Result – Windsor Won by 2 Wickets

Its taken a while, but Windsor finally got their first win of the season under their belts in a professional performance away at Farnham Common. Batting sensation Scott Martin again stole the show with his third successive hundred. Windsor won the toss and on a very green wicket acting skipper Gegg decided to back his new look bowling attack and put ‘Farnham’ into bat. The return from university of last season’s bowling spearhead Ollie Birch gave Windsor an exciting and hostile new ball attack for the first time this season. Birch and Lewis got stuck straight into Farnham’s top order sending four of them back to the pavillion with only 42 on the board. Gardiner and Nickless then dug in and put them back into the game, but tight bowling from Scott Martin and Harvey Singh was the catalyst for the batting collapse Windsor had hoped for and Farnham Royal were all out for 178, four of whom were caught behind by wicket-keeper Ollie Smith who had a great game behind the stumps on a difficult wicket. A gettable target but the green wicket was definately a bowlers wicket if the ball was put in the right areas. All season Windsor have suffered from poor batting at the top of the order, and Windsor were quickly 49-4 after some good opening bowling. But with Scott Martin still at the crease it was sensible batting that was needed, acting skipper Gegg came to the crease and provided that support. A partnership of 65 pushed the pendulum back in Windsor’s favour, and further sensible batting from Webster, Jackson and Lewis pushed Windsor to 174-8 and with only four needed to win it was apt that man of the season Scott Martin was there, to hit Fearon for six over the leg side boundary to give Windsor a deserved win. With further university boys due back over the next two weeks things are starting to look very encouraging as Windsor’s march up the table continues……
