Radlett CC Lost by 25 runs

Match report Radlett's promotion chances slip away

the 2's have dropped out of the promotion places in Division 2A after Saturdays defeat at the hands of Preston.

Winning the toss and choosing to bowl, captain Dan Foster was keen to return from 1st team duty with a win, things started well as Ross Carpenter and Stuart Browne (1-17) kept things tight reducing Preston to 59-2 from 21 overs. they were ably assisted by spinners Foster(2-36) and Simeon Cohen (1-32) but Preston kept plugging away attempting to set a target. A quick piece of fielding from Browne saw Preston's captain run out with a direct hit and good bowling from Troy Barrett (2-38) saw Preston at 165-7 at the 45 over mark. However poor fielding led to three dropped catches and Preston managed to reach a respectable 215-7 from their 50 overs.

The Radlett reply once again got off to a very good start with Alex Cooke (55) and Noah Lipschitz (39) putting on a hundred run partnership. The young pair from St Albans School batted very well and are showing real progress this season. Unfortunately both fell and what followed disappointed everyone watching. Radlett went from 108-0 from 20 overs to 144-7 from 37 overs and they were staring at a second successive defeat. Simeon Cohen (22) started to mount a counter and marshalled the tail well until he fell and left captain Foster to tray see his side home. Foster (28) was the last man to fall after a real fight to win in the dying light of the day, but he was caught on the boundary off a dubiously high full toss and this meant Radlett fell 25 runs short of victory.

The loss means Radlets promotion chances are out of their hands and are reliying on other results to go there way in the last game of the season.
