Weekend Roundup 3/4 June

🚨 Weekend Round-Up 3/4 June 🚨

Preston 1s came unstuck against @redbourncc in the Championship despite a superb 100 from James Stevens (105). Posting 208 all out in the 47th over Redbourn got over the line to win by 4 wickets with Ed Hales smashing a 51 ball 102.

Preston 2s won an excellent game v @oldowenscc winning by 68 runs. Preston’s innings faltered but a solid 56 from Olly Catlin and impressive 52 from Jacob Williamson helped Preston post 237. Good bowling saw Owens wickets tumble to fall 169 all out in 43rd over. Jacob Williamson also taking 4/29 in an impressive spell.

The Third X1 lost against @kingslangleycc by 6 wickets. Preston posted an under-par 133/8 which Kings Langley reached in the 26th over for 4 wickets.

Preston’s Fourth X1 beat @welwynbees by 5 wickets. Welwyn elected to bat but fell in the 37th over for 138 all out. Evergreen Srini Nanjundan took 6/24 in an inspired spell rolling back the years. Returning John Garnham with his refurbished knees and bionic hair was not out 56 to cement the Preston chase, reaching 140 for 5 in the 40th over.

Two out of Four for the day.

Sunday 1s were driven over by a strong @elstowcc

But we saw the Preston Sunday 2s have an outing against Henlow Blues. A well matched game saw Blues post 218/4 off 40 overs. Preston fell short by 11 runs in reply with the highlight being a superbly made 44 by young Oscar Welch before being stupidly run out by his cricket coach. Supported by the mighty Greig Hearne making a rare Sunday appearance…(55).

All the younger players performed brilliantly and contributed to an excellent game of cricket. With Saturday’s youth also taking it on full tilt there are some very positive signs.

Our thanks for our wonderful club sponsors….
