Will Dyer claimed a hat-trick to complete a 26-run win for Nassington against Ufford Park in the first round of the Stamford Charity Cup last night (May 8).
Ufford, who have found runs hard to come by so far this season, were dismissed for 92 chasing the home side’s 118-6 in a match shortened to 16 overs per side due to bad light.
Conor Craig struck 45 for Nassington who will now play Stamford in the second round on May 22. Stamford won a very low scoring game at Uppingham by just two runs after being dismissed for just 88. Scott Chamberlain (3-17) and Sam Barrett (2-17) were their bowling stars as Uppingham were restricted to 86-6 in 20 overs.
Pete Morgan (65) and Sam Evison (42) did the bulk of the scoring as Twenty/20 specialists Bourne beat King’s Keys by 18 runs. Morgan struck eight fours and two sixes as Bourne piled up 147-3 in their 20 overs. Wahid Javed (53) batted well down the order for the city side, but Adam Binns (5-22) delivered a decisive spell of bowling for Bourne.
Bourne, runners-up last season, will now travel to Uffington in the quarter-finals. Uffington saw off neighbours Burghley Park by six wickets thanks to fine displays from Tom Bentley (55 & 3-18), Ben Jennings (3-14) and Damien Herrick (40no).
