Sussex Martlets 199 – 5 Victor Davies 87, Simon Leefe 47
Hurstpierpoint College 200 – 3
On winning the toss the Martlets chose to bat on a warm sunny day with possible showers about. We were lucky enough to have Three bridges over seas player Victor Davies from New Zealand in our side. Victor opening with Simon Leefe got us of to a great start treating the college bowlers with disdain. When Davies (87) and Leefe (47) were out we were looking like posting a good total but the quality of the bowling made it difficult for our middle order to carry on the openers sucess. After our 40 overs we were 199 for 5. In defense of our total our bowlers bowled very tight lines and prevented the college breaking away but wickets were hard to come by. J Newland 0-32 off 7 overs, M Stone 2-26 off 8 and V Davies 1-25 off 6 bowled exceptionaly well. The Martlets played so well it’s hard to believe we still lost but Hurst college under Nick Creed are a fromidable side who will require a great performance to beat them.
