PREMIER DIVISION

No change at the top as Tring Athletic, Biggleswade FC and Arlesey Town all won, likewise no change at the bottom as Wembley and Stotfold played out the day’s only goalless game. Elsewhere two goals in the space of as many minutes saw Crawley Green come from behind to win at Edgware Town. It was raining goals at Oxhey Jets and not an umbrella in sight on a warm autumn afternoon as visitors Biggleswade FC were made to work hard before winning 6-4. Baldock Town were also amongst the goals with a 4-2 victory at North Greenford United FC.

With the Division’s top two involved in cup action the focus turned to the chasing pack to reduce the deficit on the leaders and none more so than at Pitstone & Ivinghoe as they welcomed Berkhamsted Raiders. Pitstone, unbeaten in the league at the start of play, failed in their quest as the visitors edged a tight game by the odd goal in three as leapfrogged their hosts to move into second place (their highest position since joining the SSML). Totternhoe also came up short when going down at home to Old Bradwell United. No change at the bottom as both Tring Corinthians AFC and Clean Slate both suffered home defeats to The 61FC (Luton) and Unite MK respectively. The latter’s 6-0 success was the club’s highest away win since changing their name.

CCLD1; Staff, King & Singh in return for Buckingham Town II’s v Long Marston

Buckingham Town II’s host third place Long Marston on Saturday at Bourton Road, in the reverse of the fixture from back in May that saw Town’s only victory of the season to date.

Sports Shots caught up with Town skipper Steve Beck ahead of the game:

As you can see we have a much-changed side from what we have had out previously this season. Adam King makes his first start of the season now back from Stowe & Northants duties and will be pushing for a place in the first team. Ben & Gurwinder have dropped down from the firsts and will have good opportunities to get some overs under their belts.

After a good performance last week which saw us post our second highest score of the season so far, confidence should be up going into the game against a team we beat earlier in the season.

It has reached a point where we need to string a run of results together to help us move up the league and away from the relegation places. I believe this is possible if we can keep putting teams out with this strength in depth

CL; Buckingham Town II’s battle all to no a-Vale

Buckingham Town II’s – 123-8 off 48 overs (6 points)

Abingdon Vale – 198 all out off 51.1 overs (18 points)

Buckingham Town II’s drew with Abingdon Vale on Saturday with both sides were in good positions during the afternoon to win the game but both sides struggled to remove each other’s tail end; Town reduced their visitors from 84-3 to 100-5, but Vale reached 198 before finally being bowled out, in return the hosts slumped from 24-3 to 63-7 but again the tail end dug in, and Matthew Thatcher hit a superb 41 & merged a good partnership with James Gear that saw the pair remain unbeaten and seeing out their allotted overs to tie the game.

Abingdon won the toss and elected to bat, William Barker & Amith Premkumar started well until Jason Ell bowled & caught the former with the score on 27 in the fifth over, with Premkumar run out shortly after. Vale then added a further 46 runs before Simon Myatt making his first start of the season took the third wicket with the score on 84. Myatt struck again and a James Gear LBW reduced Vale to 100-5 and Town looked in control, but in came Paul Butcher who steadied the ship and made 55 before being caught behind by Alex O’Dell off Myatt, Wasim Fayyaz took three wickets but Abingdon tail ender Paul White ended 22 not out as his side reached 198 before their final wicket fell. Myatt & Fayyaz both ended with 3 wickets apiece.

O’Dell & Alistair Martin opened for Town after the break as the scorching hot sunshine bore down, and by the ninth over the home side were 24-3 with O’Dell, Sam Younghusband & Martin all out. Captain Steve Beck came in to partner Thatcher and the pair looked solid until Beck was caught quite brilliantly single handed by William Barker diving away to his right. Vishal Valambhia lasted two balls before falling LBW, and just nine runs later Town were 62-6 when Sam Chapman was bowled by Arthur Chapman. Ell fell LBW in the next over and Myatt made 7 before being caught and then things looked bleak, 78-8 and a further sixteen overs to face with two wickets left.

Matthew Thatcher hit 41 not out

But Thatcher still stood in the middle, and his partnership with Gear saw the remaining overs out, Gear finishing 23 not out and their partnership worth 45 runs. Joe Butcher finished with 4 wickets for 41 runs off 16 overs the highlight for Abingdon.

FFCL; Horwood look to continue Dom-inant form

Great Horwood entertain New City (Milton Keynes) on Saturday looking to make it three wins on the spin, and with it climb out of the bottom two places in the Four Counties Cricket League Division One table. After last weeks thumping win over Elstow, Horwood now face bottom of the table New City, who themselves will be looking to escape the lower echelons of the league table.

Sports Shots caught up with Horwood skipper Stuart Parker this week:

This week we are again at home as we entertain bottom of the table New City in what is a must win game for us. The win would see us jump out of the bottom two as we look to continue the last two weeks good form. However, the squad is a little depleted this weekend with Glyn Davies & Dale Armitage both unavailable from the side last week, and with Adam Armitage, Billy Harper & Josh Nix still unavailable it leaves our bowling attack a little thin.

We have though managed to sign Dominic Pritchard from Buckingham Town this week which is a good signing for us and he comes straight into the side along with Kev Smith who will take the wicket keeping duties
