Radley Rangers v Old Wykehamist Cricket Club OWCC XI on Sun 14 Jun 2009 at 11.30
Old Wykehamist Cricket Club Lost by 15 runs

Match report Away to Radley Rangers was always going to be a tough challenge for the OWs, however the team had trained hard and were due a victory. Captained ably by Sam McArthur the OWs lost the toss and had to field first. Tim Lewis opened the bowling with George Close-Brooks and the pair of them made early inroads into the strong Radley batting line up. Ben Hutton, recent Middlesex CCC captain, was the key to Radley’s score of 241-8 off 50 overs and gave a masterclass in timing an innings. He scored a total of 130* when the next highest score was 21. All the bowlers contributed and had Hutton not gone beserk in the last 5 overs scoring 60 runs, the OWs would have been well placed to chase the score down. After the early loss of Archie Fellows, James Irvine-Fortescue and the captain rebuilt the innings scoring 50 and 41 respectively. At the halfway stage OWCC were 96-1, but then Hutton intervened to continue his truly match winning performance. First he took a cracking catch to dismiss Irvine-Fortescue, then another to dismiss Craig before he was involved in the run out of Walters for 32. With the OWs needing over a run a ball, off the last 10 overs, the match was finally decided by that man Hutton who picked up the last 2 wickets with his bowling. The OWs were 15 runs short in the end and if it hadn’t been for that man Hutton, the Old Wykehamists would have been celebrating a good performance with a victory. Perhaps 2010 will be different….
