Rambo runs through Grayshott

Tilford 2nd XI welcomed Grayshott’s 3rd XI to the green on a warm muggy afternoon with the hosts winning the toss and electing to bat. Another good opening stand between skipper Martin Cantwell(23) and Adi Walker (39) saw nearly 50 on the board before the introduction of Nick Fenton precipitated a Tilford collapse to 61-5. Young Matt Bozier (18) and Hugo Young steadied the ship and after the younsterrs dismissal Mark Osborne doggedly stuck around helping Young to his maiden league 50. The return of Fenton who claimed his 5th wicket for 29 off his 10 overs and a brilliant run out by Oosthuizen helped end the Tilford innings in the 48th over with 186 on the board.

Grayshott had a terrible start losing two early wickets before young Ali Wheble (18) and Neil Sampson (33) put on 60 for the 3rd wicket. The introduction of Rick Austin (4-15) and Jack Cantwell (3-29) reduced Grayshott from 69-2 to 88-6 in no time and with wickets falling regularly Grayshott were shot out for 123, Tilford earning 10 points and going top of the league.
