It was a low scoring game, principally due to the fact that ground mower had broken down, so that the outfield resembled the semi-rough at Wentworth, writes David Ritman.
Shots which would normally have reached the boundary often resulted in being singles.
The wicket itself was very green, again causing some interesting effects from both sets of bowlers.
David Tungate’s 48, as part of a useful opening partnership with Matt Reed, would probably have been a century in better conditions, whilst Mark Greenslade hit a creditable 29. Joe Burns returned to bowling form, and with Andy Turner shared most of the wickets.
It was a good day for James Harvey too who made his first team debut and took three wickets.
This was a good response to last week’s disappointing result and it is to be hoped that Uckfield’s season kicks on from here.
