GUY THE GORILLA GETS IN THE SWING

A century from Stuart Guy helped Wooburn Narkovians 2nd XI keep up their fine start to the season on Saturday as they beat Royal Ascot 2nds. It was Wooburn's third win in a row in Division 3 of the Thames Valley League, and they gained maximum points after being put in to bat by Royal Ascot.

Despite the early loss of Alan Cuthbert, runs were scored at a vewry quick rate. With the score on 49, Dave Rogers was dismissed for 16, but this brought together Guy (108) and Paul Cuthbert (84), who shared in the stand of the day. They added 143 at a tremendous rate before Cuthbert was the third wicket to fall. Driving and pulling with timing and power, Guy continued his assault while all around him were falling, to notch a very good ton. He was out when the score had reached 260, and Wooburn declared soon after on 265-9 after 49 overs.

In reply, Royal Ascot got off to a disasterous start as Harding was bowled by Czakan off the second ball of the innings. However, Wooburn's joy was cut short as Hayes and Theobald set about the bowling, taking the score to 85 before Phil Day broke through. Day, coming back from a serious, career-threatening injury, bowled Theobald with his first ball, although this only served to bring the equally hard-hitting Ellis to the crease.

Carrying on where Theobald left off, Ellis took the score past 100 in the 16th over, one less than Wooburn had taken, and the target was very much on. Day, bowling superbly, then turned the game round as he started to go through the Royal Ascot middle order, taking 4-38. With Paul Cuthbert giving good support, and accounting for the dangerous Ellis, Ascot's brave attempt was brought to an end with the score on 165, with some twenty overs still to spare.
