Leamington Cricket Club 4th XI v Overbury II on Sat 04 Jun 2016 at 13.30
Leamington Cricket Club Won by 36 Runs

Match report Leamington’s fourth team gained a hard-earned victory at home to bottom-placed Overbury on Saturday. Unusually for a side in the lower reaches of the league pyramid, Leamington included two players with first class experience. Richard Bate, once a team mate of Mike Atherton at Cambridge, opened with Cam Mitchell and scored a pleasing 39, whilst his young partner showed promise once more with 28. The middle order faltered and despite a few lusty blows from captain Shaun Williams (40*), Leamington’s total of 184 – 7 seemed well under par on a good track.

This appeared to be confirmed as Overbury’s David Bull and Dan Higgins set about the youthful Leamington attack. Higgins made 34 before becoming the first of two victims to former Warwickshire skipper Neil Smith. The middle order faltered but it was not until Bull was bowled by Shaun Williams for 70 that the game turned Leamington’s way. Overbury had no answer to Williams’ clever variations of flight and he went through the latter batsmen at will ending with 6 for 8 in eight tantalising overs. Overbury were dismissed for 148, giving Leamington a win by 36 runs.
