Uckfield Anderida take full 30 points in game against Bexhill 3rds

Uckfield took the full 30 points from their game against Bexhill 3rds on Saturday, bowling them out for 134 off 39 overs, and passing that score with one wicket to spare, off a six from Dan Phillips.cricket-ball

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.

Green wicket

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.
