Sunday league 5th June
Windsor vs. Kidmore End

Windsor disappointingly lost their opening Thames and Chiltern league fixture, going down by 43 runs against Kidmore End on Sunday.

Batting first Kidmore piled up 256 –5 in their allotted 40 overs.Windsor were not helped by the absence of overseas star Justin Granger, who was playing a representative fixture, nor by the breakdown of opening bowler Alex Hill, who broke down after just 3 overs. It therefore came down to the experience of Andy Wigley and Warren Griffiths to shoulder the burden of the attack.However on a flat pitch against good batting, Windsor toiled and wickets were few and far between, and despite striving manfully in the field .were unable to prevent the visitors running up a big score.Although 16 year old leg spinner Chris Kellard bowled well to pick up 3 of the 5 wickets to fall.

Batsmen continued to dominate after tea as Windsor’s openers Rob Noble and Paul Huggins responded with 149 for the first wicket, Noble finally fell for 58, ending a rather lean start to the season for him, and when the prolific Paul Huggins went soon after for 76, Windsor needed almost 9 an over with 9 overs to go.This proved too much for the incoming batsmen and Windsor ended rather anti climatically on 213 –2 off their 40 overs. They will hope to get back to winning ways this Sunday when they embark on the long haul to Aston Rowant in deepest Oxfordshire.
