Radlett CC 3rd XI v St. Margaretsbury II on Sat 25 Aug 2012 at 13:00
Radlett CC Won by 226 runs

Match report Radlett III demolished St Margaretsbury II in a clinical fashion on Saturday with the young Radlett side totally outplaying a young St Marg's side. The St Margaretsbury team arrived in dribs and drabs and stand in skipper kailash had wanted to field first but eventually after winning the toss decided to bat.

The old and young partnership of Noah Lipscitz and David Robinson opened up and Robbo helped to keep the young Noah in check and a good partnership ensued. Good running by Noah kept Robbo fit and it was a surprise when Noah who was looking impressive, overcompensated and went too far to off and was bowled on his leg stump.

This brought in Hemel Malde who has recently impressed with the bat and with Regan padded up ready for his last knock before returning to Kiwi land, St Margs tried 6 bowlers but could not dislodge Robbo or Hemel. Robbo in his impressive cultured way stroked his way to 100 and Hemel rather blasted his way to his first Century for the Radlett mens XI's.

Young Charlie Fredericks looked a decent bowler but unfortunately injured a knee and we hope he recovers soon.

Discussions about how many overs to give St Margs ensued and Kailash eventually declared at 275 for 1 after 41 overs, with Robbo insisting that 4 more should have been taken. Tea was taken and enjoyed by all.

After tea, Kailash decided to use the old ball and opened with Simeon and Oli Robertson. Simeon was to be blunt sensational as he spun the home side to victory. He settled into a good line and length and also bowled with good pace. Oli was his usual miserly self and soon Simeon had the oppo in a spin. His first wicket was so plumb LBW the batsman walked before the appeal was upheld. With the score 24-4 the rains came and an hours delay ensued, with 16 overs being lost. Simeon and Oli continued where they left off and wickets soon tumbled again.

Lee took two good sharp catches at silly mid off and soon Simeon had a Michelle. Oli took wicket number 6 and Simeon got another. With 20 overs remaining Goulash took the new ball and introduced Ross to the attack and he immediately bowled the quirky Johnson for 12.

Simeon then battled St Margs skipper Griffiths in a funny battle where Griffiths wound up as if to hit the ball to Radlett Village and missed. Sim enquired whether he could wind up any more and was greeted with a yes and a ball dispatched for 4 with a wind up.

Sim eventually got the final wicket and ended with a Seven fer. He deserved his haul, but credit to Oli Robertson for his pressure at the other end.

All in all an easy victory against a very young side with a game played in a good spirit and well umpired by Tee Cee (again having to stand at both ends).

Difficult for skipper Kailash to name a Man of the Match, but he plumped for Simeon over Robbo and Hemel.

No doubt that Harry Copley won TFC and Regan got pad rash!!

Thanks to the tea ladies as usual and to Tee Cee for umpiring at both ends.

Another good win and a mid table position is now assured but a feeling of what might have been exists.
