Cheltenham, Gloucester and Forest Cricket League Division One West

Cinderford St John II 134-4 (21.5 overs) Huntley 132-9 (30 overs)


CHRIS Jackson fell to a catch just three runs shy of a half century as Cinderford St John’s recorded a first win in three matches.

Jackson was the top scorer of the day in the match against Huntley and also proved a thorn in the visitors’ side with the ball as he picked up three wickets.

Huntley won the toss and elected to bat, but Jackson was in a miserly mood, returning figures of three wickets for just seven runs in six overs.

Emily Kibble also claimed three wickets for 16 runs in five overs.

Huntley opener John Green went for four, bowled by Sam Baker while his partner Colin Reeves was caught off the bowling of Emily Kibble for 24.

Skipper Kris Abbot made 27 before being caught off Daniel Kibble.

Huntley’s top scorer was tail-ender who was unbeaten on 30 when the Huntley innings closed.

Emily Kibble also bowled Scott McAlpine for one run and helped account for Joe Jeremiah, who was stumped by Peter Hoare for five.

Jackson’s bowling saw off Lewis Bevis for seven and trapped Marcus Bevis for a duck.

His third wicket was Louis Emberson who went to a catch for one.

St John’s skipper Steve Roberts put on a useful 38 before being bowled by Lewis Bevis for 38.

At the other end, Sam Baker was caught off the bowling of Stephen Wood for eight.

Marcus Bevis also had Craig Roberts caught for 15.

But Simon Jones and Paul Matthews, with seven and 10 runs respectively, saw Cinderford home to claim 19 match points.
