Seniors’ round-up 17 & 18 September

There was no game at the club on Saturday, but following the downpours of Saturday, Dulwich were the visitors, following the pull-out by Hook and Southborough.

Batting first, after a gentleman’s toss, due to Long Ditton players arriving at varying times throughout the afternoon after football, rugby etc, LDCC got off to a poor start, with Nick Turnbull being caught for 1, chasing a wide ball. Simon Sweeney steadied the ship, finishing off his season with a fluent 75, before being stumped. James Chapple and Gareth Plunkett then chipped in with 23 and 29 respectively, before the LDCC youngsters saw the club reach 177 for 7 off their 40 overs.

After tea, the Dulwich openers got the away team off to a good start, before James Chapple edged closer to his 100th wicket of the season, bowling Bickmore. Straker hit 37, before being deceived by a slower ball from Matt Baker, but it was Ford who did the damage, making 80 to help Dulwich move towards the total. Despite further wickets from bowlers Simon Sweeney and Joe Rogers, Dulwich got home with 1.5 overs to spare.
