Northowram Fields CC First XI v Altofts on Sat 28 Jul 2007 at 1.00
Northowram Fields CC Won by 6 wkts (6pts)

Match report The Rams kept their momentom afloat with a resounding six wicket success over promotion rivals Altofts.

The vistors to Westercroft Lane, Altofts were sent in to bat on a damp looking and ticker tape filled pitch following the 365 days of rain and tropical night respectively, and were soon a wicket down with Matthew Rushworth trapping the Altofts opener LBW. But the Rams had to wait a long while before they gained their second wicket, Gary Rodger providing the breakthrough after Altofts were heading towards massive total, being 79 for one inside the first 16 overs. This breakthrough started a huge collapse from the visitors, with Chris Thompson being the hero of the day. Thompson managing to bowl more wickets than sixes thankfully, and returned with figures of 6 for 52 of his 13.3 overs and helping the rams bowl out Altofts for just 126.

This total was never going to provide the Rams batting line up any problems at all, and the victory was soon wrapped up within 26 overs. Run machine and captain Robert Larner once again leading the way with a half century at the top of the order. Runs also were provided by Scott Hadnum who chipped in with 32, but it was left to Robert Larner’s older and much wiser brother, Ian Larner to hit the winning runs with some no nonsense belting!!

The Rams promotion and title quest still looking good following this latest resounding success, with the only week link at the moment being the fielding, which will certainly have to be addressed by the skipper at some point before it becomes to late.
