Cinderford St John II 176 all out, Staunton and Corse III 220-6 (40 overs)

-----

STRONG performances by the opening pair set Staunton and Corse on the road to victory over Cinderford St John.

The visitors won the toss and elected to bat and Steve Dannatt and Paul Tyrer took full advantage, putting on 115 between them.

Dannatt scored 60 before being bowled by Ryan Kibble, while Tyrer was caught by Jonathan Coleman for 55 off the bowling of Mark Roberts.

Roberts picked up five wickets for 24 runs off his eight overs.

He had Adam Robson caught and bowled for 14 and claimed the wicket of Jon Hulls with the ball on the same score.

Richard Kelly also went for four, caught by Chris Jackson.

Roberts’ final wicket was Stuart Smellie who was bowled for a duck.

Corse completed their 40 overs with William Garner unbeaten on 36 and Adam Gresty on 13.

Set a target of 221, Cinderford got off to a slow start with the top four batsmen contributing a total of just 40. Openers Edward Ruck and Ryan Kibble went for nine and 19 respectively.

Ruck was caught off the bowling of Wayne Phillips by Adam Robson – who took four cat- ches – while Kibble was bowled by James Brown.

Jonathan Coleman was caught by Robson for 11 off William Garner and Grantley Sims went the same way for a duck off Brown.

Chris Jackson provided some mid-order defiance before being caught by Robson for 59 off Andy Howe.

Daniel Kibble was then bowled by Garner before he had scored while Craig Kibble was caught by Tyrer off Garner for five.

Skipper Mark Roberts showed the way with 46 before he was caught by Wayne Phillips off Jon Hulls.

Hulls combined with Adam Gresty to take the wickets of Emily Kibble who was caught and Nathan Francis, stumped.

That left Dave Merrell at the crease on two and St John’s 44 runs behind Staunton.
