Liss Cricket Club 2nd XI v Ashford Hill II on Sat 07 May 2016 at 2.00
Liss Cricket Club Lost By 159 runs

Match report Liss 2nds began their season with a home fixture against Ashfiled Hill. With only 10 men and the captain arriving late Liss won the toss and decided to bowl first. Despite being a man down, tight bowling from the young opening pair of Matty Evans and Christian Hedicker supported by good fileding Liss kept Ashfield down to 39-3 off the first 12 overs with Matty Evans getting all 3. Ashfield Hill Batsmen D Hyland then came to the crease and despite further steady bowling from Theo Brindley, Dave Chambers who picked up two wickets and debutant Tom Townsend who also picked up two wickets the Ashfiled batsmen hit an impressive 83 to help Ashfield to post 191-9. The man down in the field made a big difference as there always seem to be gaps but the final score did not reflect the steady bowling and good fileding especially from the young duo of Theo Brindley and Sam Waine. Pick of the bowlers was Matty Evans who finished with 3-21.
It was then Liss turn to bat and dispite optimisim Liss never really got going. Following quick dismisals of Steve May and Steve Johns with the former rightly feeling very hard done by to be given out chasing down the high score was going to be dificult. Tom Townsend top scored with 10 and Jonnie Evans hit Liss only 4 on the way to being bowled out for 32.
Although a very dispappointing result with good bowling perforances from the young pair of Evans and Hedicker and good debut from Townsend with both bat a ball there was still positives to take into the next league game. Special mention needs to go out to Sam Waine and Theo Brindley who fielded brilliantly.
The next game is away to Crown Taverners 2
