Opening game of the 2022 season

Victory for SWCC in our first outdoor game of 2022 (in the #villagecup) - Posted 12th April 2022

South Weald CC welcomed Ingatestone CC to sandpit lane in the Essex & Suffolk (Preliminary Round) of the national village cup.

Winning the toss and choosing to bat first, South Weald posted 218-8.

Despite an early loss, a useful partnership from Vamshi Lingala and Pete Stroud put South Weald into a strong position before a powerful batting display from Rob Hull and some late hitting from Jim Long got South Weald to a defendable target with 50s from Rob & Vam.

In reply, I&FCC were restricted to 132ao thanks to great opening spells from Pat & Palmer (both taking wickets). Ingatestone CC started to gain some momentum with some impressive big-hitting before some quick-fire wickets propelled the game back in South Weald's favour.

3x wickets in the end for Dom, Lee & Palmer capping off a solid win.

We look forward to welcoming last year’s oppo Worlington CC to Sandpit Lane in a few weeks!
