Barnards Green v Leamington Cricket Club 1st XI on Sat 06 Jun 2015 at 12.00
Leamington Cricket Club Lost By 5 Wickets

Match report Leamington 1st XI suffered a five wicket defeat against a very disciplined Barnard's Green side.

Batting first, Leamington got off to slow but steady start as Zack Fagg (17) and Jonathan Wigley looked to come to terms with a slow wicket. Once Fagg was caught, David Bailey (32) then joined Wigley at the crease but when the home side turned to spinners Andy Ford (3-60) and George Rhodes (1-19) Leamington lost four wickets in quick succession, including Wigley who departed caught and bowled for an impressive 64. Rob Williams (31) and Lee Hopkins (51) then set about rebuilding the innings before James Williams (14*) played a quick cameo innings at the end to see the visitors to 217-7 off their 55 overs. Phil Harris also picked up two wickets for Barnard's Green.

In reply, despite getting Andrew Curtis out early, a game-changing partnership between Worcestershire contracted duo George Rhodes and Alex Hepburn (39) took the game away from Leamington. In similar fashion to the first innings, Leamington's spin duo of Mark Ashcroft (2-39) and Fagg (2-57) took four quick wickets but it was too little too late as Rhodes (95*) played a masterful innings and was well supported by Ford (27) and Jamie Tapper (23*) as Barnard's Green won by five wickets.
