Match Report

Brighton & Hove CC 259 – 4,  Sam Cooper 2 for 39

Junior Martlets 193 – 4  Alex Harbourne 94no,  Alex Cooke 36, Ben Dunkerley 20*

This game had a strange side to it as it began as an overs game with a strict interpretation of the wides rule but had to change to a time game for domestic reasons on the ground. The consequence was that extras did awfully well! Brighton and Hove batted first and scored freely. The Juniors only had one spinner available for this game and this was telling. Sam Cooper demonstrated what this department could have done. The Juniors faced a daunting total but began well with Morgan Griffin hitting hard but luck was not on his side. Alex Cooke and Alex Harbourne stabilised the ship after two quick wickets to take the score to 118. Alex Harbourne didn’t have quite enough time to reach his 100 but it was a fine performance. Interestingly without the wides there were only 11 runs between the scores! The side was captained with great philosophical calm by Dan Stokes.
