Stiffs Power To 7th Win Over Under-Strength Grayshott

A minute’s silence in honour of recently departed Tilford stalwart John Commerford preceded the game on Tilford Green.

A weakened Grayshott side batted first and prodigal son Tim Fry had a stroke of luck when a booming inswinger from Johnny Barren bowled him first ball but the umpire deemed he had overstepped. Fry was unable to capitalize though and fell in a similar manner a few overs later. Some unusually wayward bowling from Tilford helped Grayshott move forwards at 4 an over until Knott finally hit his straps towards the end of his 12 over spell and he ripped through the middle order. Two poorly judged runouts didn’t help Grayshott’s cause and they subsided to 92 all out in the 33rd over leaving Tilford 10 overs to bat before tea.

Knowing only wickets could get Grayshott back into the game, Wilson and Knight were watchful against the opening combination of youth and experience in the form of Barry Owen and Allan Lang and successfully negotiated the session before tea scoring 32. After tea, Wilson showed an unusually aggressive style being particularly savage on anything short before falling to a good catch teetering on the boundary edge in front of the Barley Mow. Alex Beard plundered a rapid 17 before being trapped LBW trying to finish the game in style leaving Knight on 28 and Gear to hit the winning runs from his first ball.
