Northowram Fields CC First XI v Liversedge on Sun 03 Jun 2007 at 1.30
Northowram Fields CC Won by 102 runs

Match report Northowram Fields meet Premier division side Liversedge in the second round of the Jack Hampshire Cup, in what turned out to be a memorable day for the rams!!!!

Skipper Robert Larner won the toss an elected to bat on what looked like a glorious batting track (surely because of all them hours or grounds man has spent on it!!). Surprisingly the skipper only managed 3 runs as the rams posted a mammoth score of 286 for 4. He was left stranded in the middle as he attempted a tight run in which Paul “Mr Tickle” Bottomley sent him back. The middle order once again contributed well with Gary Rodger 47, and Jason “Gay Hands” Smith 44. But the star man of the day was Englishman Scott Hadnum, who made an unbeaten century (even though at one point he did bat for his ton, make a note of that Tom, could we have a special fine???). Athlete Ian Larner once again chipped in with some explosive batting at the end of the innings.

Liversedge required over a run a ball at the start of the innings, but with some tight bowling by Gary or Harry Rodger, they quickly began to fall behind the run rate. Liversedge started to take many risks throughout the innings and Matthew Rushworths 4 wickets helped removed four of the top six batsmen. But the most important wicket came from the fielding of Sam “Boycott” Brittain, who ran out the visitors oversees with a direct hit, just as he was starting to look dangerous! Matthew Lloyd managed to grab three more wickets with impressive bowling as the rams bowled Liversedge out for just 184 to see them win by 102 runs.

A great result for the rams who must carry this form in to the rest of the league season and cup run!
