Match report

St Michaelís started their first league match in division 10 against Kettering III on a warm and sunny afternoon at Kettering which St Michaelís had used as their home ground for some fixtures last year.

Skipper Will Kingston won the toss and elected to bat on what looked a good wicket. Simeon Tinnant soon got into his stride and continued to play a fine innings until he was out for 60 in the 41st over. At the other end Alan Bartley and Dale Harrison were out cheaply although Will Kingston with an aggressive 31 kept the scoreboard ticking over.

After he went another 4 wickets fell cheaply on a wicket that was keeping low and slow. With the score on 151 with only 7 overs to go, enter Tom Marlow who flayed the bowling for 48 not out with 3 sixes off his first 3 balls. The result was that St Michaelís finished on 210 for 8 which looked a good score on a slow wicket.

Kettering started their innings in a positive manner. Opening bowlers Marlow and Malc Swann had little success, so the skipper brought on Simeon Tinnant and Ian Geddes to replace them. Geddes made the first break-through and with Tinnant also bagging a wicket the run rate was starting to climb. Geddes got the crucial wicket of Mitchingham who had looked dangerous on 26 just before the half-way period and after that wickets fell regularly with Swann coming back to bag 3 and with 2 batsmen run out. Only a late flurry from Russell moved the score along to 164 when Marlow picked up the final wicket with a sharp catch from Kingston in the penultimate over.
