Sting in the tail not enough
Monmouthshire and Glamorgan League Division One
Sudbrook 170 all out (47.5 overs) v Chepstow 173-3 (37.4 overs)
CHEPSTOW claimed this local derby by seven wickets despite a 64 from Sudbrook’s Jonathan Lewis and a season’s best 45 by tail-ender Mitchell Slape.
But an undefeated 86 by Mitchell Harris and 47 from David Teague saw Chepstow claim 20 points with seven wickets to spare.
Lewis hit a six and four fours before he was caught by Mark Guest off the bowling of David Monk, one of three wickets for the bowler.
Slape, who came in at number 10, knocked three sixes and a couple of fours before going to a catch by Mitchell Harris off the bowling of Paul Swingwood, another bowler who picked up a trio of wickets.
The other Chepstow bowlers to get among the wickets were Mitchell Harris – who claimed two, Jason Dobie and Tudor Morgan-Huggett.
No fewer than eight of the Sudbrook team succumbed to catches as the Caldicot-based side posted a total of 170 all out.
Harris’s 86 included a dozen fours and was only just short of his season’s average of 86.83 runs.
Teague hit six fours in an innings that ended with a catch by Ross Lewis off the bowling of Mark O’Leary.
All three Chepstow wickets fell to catches with two of them coming from O’Leary’s bowling.
Opener Mark Guest was caught by Mitchell Slape off the bowling off Jonathan Lewis and Tyler Morgan-Huggett was caught by Michael Martin off O’Leary.
Monk contributed 19 as Chepstow finished on 173-3.
