We are now down to roughly 10% of clubs whom began the competition at the end of April. 32 sides stand proud as regional champions following Sunday’s round of fixtures.
Horndon keep rolling on
Hordon-on-the-Hill continued their impressive performances in the Essex & Suffolk region by chasing down Bentley’s 94 none down. Horndon had scored 609 runs in their two fixtures and will face Kent’s Linton Park, who eliminated last year’s runners-up Sibton Park after knocking off 128 for the loss of one wicket.
Nail-biters in the shires
There were two two-run victories, in Glamorgan & Gwent and Oxfordshire. 2001 winners Ynystawe overcame Tondu and Aston Rowant won a nail-biter with Cumnor needing five runs going into the final over. Adam Muttitting got a wicket with his third ball and followed that up with two dots to the new batsman. Three were needed off the final ball but it went only as far as deep midwicket, Dan Matthews taking the catch.
Mind the windows…
Defending champions Sessay continued their march on through the competition. They hit 289 for 8 against Folkton & Flixton which saw Nick Thorne hit 97 from 86 deliveries, including a six which nestled on the parcel shelf of an unsuspecting Range Rover Evoque. Nick also won the GM performance of the round which you can read about here Sessay now travel to East Ardsley in round 5.
