All Cannings: 222-5, Westbury 3: 143 all out
On an unseasonably cold day we managed to get our first completed league game of the season. After losing the toss Cannings were put in to bat and opener Tom Chadwick was in fine form, hitting four sixes on his way to 123 before eventually getting bowled. Richard Sykes contributed a useful 38.
With 222 to defend, Cannings started the bowling well with Graham Mansell breaking the opening partnership early. Harry Easton, a last minute call up from the under 13s, impressed with a solid six overs and was unlucky not to pick up a wicket on his league debut. Sykes, having casually declared himself the club’s “senior all-rounder”, did some justice to that claim with three wickets from nine overs. Having opened, captain Hugo Saye brought himself back on late and his second spell required just nine balls to pick up the final three wickets of the game and complete a pleasing first result in our new division.
