Match report

St Michaelís retained their position at the top of Division 11 with a comprehensive victory over bottom side Irchester II.  

Put in to bat by the visitors, St Michaelís made a competitive 209 all out. Another solid opening partnership between Alan Bartley (36) and Danny York (19) saw 61 put on for the first wicket when Bartley was caught out off Jonathanís Groveís bowling. Two quick dismissals reduced the score to 67-3 when skipper Will Kingston was run out for 3, soon followed by York , well caught by Kenny Coddrington at mid wicket.

Ian Geddes and Simeon Tinnant held the middle order together, scoring 36 and 31 respectively. A late flourish by Brian Ahearn (19), including one huge six into an adjoining field, took the score past 200.

The Irchester reply got off to the worst possible start as opener Andy Beard was out off the first ball of the innings, nibbling a loosener from Martin Baker to be caught at the second attempt by Tinnant at gully. Baker struck again in his next over to trap Ian McDonald LBW with one that kept a bit low. Tom Marlow then removed Roy Romain for 5 to leave the reply languishing at 16 for 3.

Kris Batley showed some resistance, including a straight six of Baker, until he was removed by Marlow, fending off a short pitched delivery to be caught by Danny York for 31.  

Baker then claimed three quick wickets to put the home side back in control. His fourth was Irchester skipper Jonathan Grove. Grove was only able to spoon up another hostile delivery from the St Michaelís veteran bowler. Baker duly took the catch, and was promptly barged by Grove as the visitorís skipper vented his frustration in the crudest manner possible.

Ian Geddes and Simon Cannel clinically finished off the tail to secure victory and 29 points.

St Michaelís now have a free week, before resuming action in a fortnight away at Spencer.
