Junior Martlets 211 – 6, Marcus Campopiano 57*, Joe Ludlow 56, Greg Wisdom 36
Sussex Martlets 212 for 2
The Junior Martlets were keen to break with tradition and bat first. Jonny Wills obliged and ushered Greg Wisdom and Joe Ludlow to the wicket. They gave the Juniors an excellent start, taking the score to 94 before Joe Ludlow was out for 56. There was sound batting to follow but it proved hard to increase the tempo. Marcus Campopiano, Jack Troak and Ed Blake accelerated towards the end and 211 look a substantial score to defend. Nick Seagar and Andrew Hartridge, however, had other ideas! The onslaught was verging on the merciless! The bowlers didn’t really perform badly but there seemed little to stem the flow. Jack Troak did lure Nick Seagar into an indiscretion towards the end and Marcus Campopiano completed a fine stumping. Nevertheless cricket at Arundel is always a treat.
