Witham II v HADLEIGH CRICKET CLUB, SUFFOLK Saturday 2nd X1 on Sat 02 May 2015 at 1 pm
HADLEIGH CRICKET CLUB, SUFFOLK Won by 2 runs

Match report The first win for Hadleigh's senior teams this season was gained in a remarkable match at Witham.

A new club record partnership of 238 for the 3rd wicket was set by Marc Lloyd and Bloss Tampion as Hadleigh rattled up a formidable total of 277-3. Lloyd batted throughout the innings and finished unbeaten on 131, while Bloss hit his maiden century and was only dismissed in the final over for 117. They batted brilliantly, Lloyd hitting some magnificent straight sixes and Bloss punishing anything short or full. They beat the previous record of 225 that had stood since 1994.

It was always likely that Witham would make a good effort in their run chase, on a good wicket on a fast outfield. The impressive Jenkinson was given a life early on and that proved crucial as he and Hart (69) took the score to 182-2. At that stage Witham were favourites, never needing more than 7 an over, and with two overs left only 11 were required with five wickets in hand and Jenkinson still at the crease. The penultimate over from Blake Ambrose was the turning point, with three wickets inside four balls, including that of Jenkinson, brilliantly run out by wicketkeeper Callum Morrin for 90.

With 10 needed from the final over, the combination of some tight deliveries from Bloss and some excellent fielding by Ryan on the long-off boundary restricted Witham to seven runs. It was getting very dark by this stage so picking the ball out was becoming a challenge! Blake finished with figures of 5-54.

All in all a fantastic game of cricket which, thankfully, we won!
