MET STORMS IN TO BLOW AWAY NARKS

A fine all-round performance from Martyn Metcalfe helped White Waltham to a good win over Wooburn Narkovians in the Chiltern League.

Waltham won the toss and made the unusual decision to bat first. On a good track at Wooburn, they made steady progress in a first wicket stand of 51, which was broken when Gilmour was dismissed for 19. Laurie Brown was then joined by Metcalfe, known as 'Met', and the second wicket reaped a further 73 runs before Metcalfe was dismissed for 41.

Waltham had reached 162 and looked set for a good score when a remarkable collapse ensued. An ambitious call for a quick single resulted in Brown being run out for a fine 81, and a further two wckets fell in Chris Sullivan's over to make it 162-5. Another wicket fell without further score, and two wickets fell with the score at 165. Waltham ended on 176-8.

Wooburn got off to a useful start with an opening stand of 43 between Paul Cooper (28) and Ian Cuthbert. Once the openers were separated wickets fell at regular intervals, with Metcalfe producing an outstanding bowling performance. He took 7-36 in his allotted 12 overs and, with only Karl Turner (28) making much of an impression with the bat, Wooburn were dismissed 18 short of a win with 14 balls to spare.
