Liss Cricket Club 2nd XI v Kingsclere II on Sat 24 May 2008 at 2.00pm
Liss Cricket Club Won By 103 runs

Match report Liss won the toss and decided to bat first. It was a good start with both batsmen scoring runs and looking to have their eye in, moving the score onto 32 before Wyatt was bowled for 16. Bridger then looked to be in touch before he was caught early for 9 leaving the home teams score on 59. Liss then lost 2 quick wickets and the tables were starting to turn. This brought Prior to the crease and he made an immediate impact. Prior was back to his best and began to dispatch the bowling to all parts of the ground, much to the frustration of the Kingsclere bowlers. With Price as a partner Prior moved the score onto 111 before Price fell for 12. Johns made a quick fire 25 and Prior finally fell for 76. The home team now looked in a good position with the score on 193-8. A late flourish from Neat and Hall pushed the score onto a season’s best 238.
It was a great start for the home teams bowlers with both Allcock and Blanks picking up early wickets leaving Kingsclere 13-3 after just 5 overs. A good spell from Allcock saw him miss the outside edge over and over again causing great frustration. The visitors did not seem to have any answers for the Liss bowling attack. The overs ticked by and the runs were very few and far between with Kingclere only scoring 77 from the first 26 overs. Neat and Baker continued the good bowling and piled on the pressure. Neat picked up two quick wickets leaving the visitors struggling on 104-6. Kingclere had raised the surrender flag now and just tried to block out the rest of the overs. Baker picked up the 7th wicket and the visitors finally finished on 135-7. Another good win for Liss II.
