London Colney Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI v Leverstock Green III on Sat 24 Jun 2017 at 1:00pm
Match was Drawn 17 PTS

Match report London Colney’s 2nd XI were unable to beat a strong Leverstock Green side but were able to emerge from the game with a good haul of points thanks largely to a fine hundred from Mark Compton. Losing the toss and asked to field first, the home side’s opening attack of Compton and Daniel Pedder, offered their skipper some control, both bowling tightly, with young Pedder delivering fine figures of 2-41 from 11 overs. The rest of the Colney attack toiled gamely on a good batting wicket, but could not make regular inroads into the Leverstock Green order, whose eventual total of 245 for 7 was built around major contributions from Callingham (83) and Rai (64*).

Faced with a big run chase, but a good wicket, Colney’s response could not have got off to a better start. Compton and John Gibbons (57) added over 150 for the first wicket in good time, before Compton was the first to fall for a fine 103, his second century for the club. Shortly before his departure, the home side required 100 to win from the final 19 overs with 10 wickets in hand and looked well placed for the win. However Compton’s departure sparked a major collapse, with batsman perishing as the required run rate escalated and Callingham bowling straight and with good pace to claim six Colney wickets. With the chance of the win receding, it was left to Trevor Ray and Kev Lawrence to play out for the draw, with Colney finishing an entertaining game on 212 for 8 and taking 17 points.
