Parham Park CC v Lodsworth CC

Sunday 11th September.

Parham Park CC 104 for 8 off 34 overs (T Brand 40; A Long 11 overs 1 for 20, M Hall 11 overs 1 for 27, M Howard 5 overs 2 for 5)

Lodsworth cc 105 for 7 off 32.5 overs (C Budd 36, P Phillips 14 not out, M Hall 12 not out; D Richmond 11.5 overs 4 for 11, J Coleman 9 overs 2 for 22)

The Victorian mansion at Parham Park flanked by a lake and with deer running free was the classic backdrop to a closely contested game between Lodsworth CC and the home team Parham Park CC.

Put into bat Parham were kept on a very tight rein by a sustained Lodsworth attack with Andy Long recording 11 overs 1 for 20, Matt Hall 11 overs 1 for 27 and Martin Howard 5 overs 2 for 5. The result was Parham were contained to a miserly score of 104 for 8 of which T Brand contributed 40.

Parham were equally parsimonious with D Richmond bowling a brilliantly controlled 11.5 overs and taking 4 for 11. J Colemen supported him with 9 overs 2 for 22. But Christian Budd (36) and Paul Phillips (14 not out) fashioned a 7th wicket stand of 41 that gradually swung the game in Lodsworth’s favour. When Matt Hall (12 not out) joined Paul Phillips the pair took the Lodsworth total to 105 with just 7 balls remaining.
