Wellington v Leamington Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 09 May 2015 at 12.00
Leamington Cricket Club Won By 7 Wickets

Match report Leamington 1st XI put the disappointment of last week's defeat behind them with a fine three wicket victory away at Wellington.

Rob Williams won a rare toss and elected to bowl first with favourable conditions to take advantage of. Grant Thornton continued his fine start to the season with his third 3-fer in as many games as he removed former Nottinghamshire and Somerset player Neil Edwards (12) and Jamie Miller (7) early on to leave the hosts 32-2. Lloyd batted for a long time for 26 before Tom Lewis (3-20), Matthew Davison (1-17) and Mark Ashcroft (1-23) tied down Wellington's middle order to reduce the hosts to 118-7. However, Vaughan (31) and Byram (21*) steadied the ship as Wellington set Leamington 169 to win on a wicket that did plenty throughout. Thornton finished with 3-30 and is now the joint leading wicket taker in the league to date.

In reply, Leamington got off to a shaky start as Shahbaz Alam (6) and Ollie Curril (2) were removed early. However, Zack Fagg (44) and David Bailey (34) set about rebuilding the innings with a partnership of 47. A flurry of wickets in the middle overs made for a nervy finish but Tom Lewis (25), Mark Ashcroft (19*) and Grant Thornton (9*) ensured there were no further hiccups as Leamington sealed a three wicket win that leaves them in fifth place. For Wellington Wagner (2-30) and Byram (3-36) were the pick of the bowlers.
