Long limps home to save the draw

LCC V Parham Park. Away

Sussex Rules.

Parham: 169 all out Lodsworth 142 for 9. Match Drawn.

Parham’s innings was largely down to Williams, who scored a fine 101 not out. Hall being the best of the bowlers (28 for 3 from 12) aided with some firey bowling from Finn. We nearly all had a bowl and they went into tea with 169 on the board.

Lodsworth’s batting began well with a useful 26 from Hall. A splendid 54 from Finn Campbell and with Gough’s 22 and we were set fair. There was a little sulking and some unpleasant words about some marginal LBW decisions that some found unnecessary for a Sunday. Our concentration waned the middle order faltered and we were left with the still hopping Andy Long and Rob Collins to block out for a draw….probably the best result.
