Hide Report
Mention the name Dick Keeble to any bowlers in the area and their hearts will sink to the bottom of their boots, and another superb track prepared by the groundsman saw nearly 520 runs scored for the loss of just 10 wickets. Two fine hundreds by Hurley's Ridgeway (101) and Wooburn's Dave Pidgeon (123) helped the run spree along, with Hurley skipper Cole (4-72) the only really successful bowler.

Electing to bat first, Hurley soon found runs easy to come by as Ridgeway and Taylor (61) flayed the bowling to all parts in an opening stand worth 132. Ridgeway was particularly aggressive, hitting four sixes and twelve fours, and scoring his runs off just 77 balls. When Ridgeway was out, Furneaux (36) scored at a run-a-ball, adding 61 with Taylor. With Tim Oppenshaw (25) and Woodage (16 not out) adding late runs, Hurley declared on 259-4.

The target was always on, especially as Pidgeon and Alan Cuthbert (59) shared in an excellent second wicket stand. Cole dismissed the first four batsmen, but Rob Smith (35 not out) and Jeff Morris (16) saw Wooburn home by four wickets after a spirited chase.
