Match Reports & Results

On Saturday, 14th May, Ferring played Sussex University III in a 40 over match.  A long period of dry weather made for the prospect of excellent batting conditions, and skipper Cameron Baldock had no hesitation in choosing to bat on winning the toss.  45 minutes later, however, Ferring were struggling at 46 for 5, and it seemed not such a good toss to win after all. The Sussex students had victory and an early tea in sight.  Iain Wardley and Jonathon Bond had other ideas, and with great patience and determination  in the face of some skilled bowling, they took the score to 212.  Iain scoring a fine 91 not out, and Jonathon a stylish 64 not out. Only some excellent fielding by the opposition prevented a much higher total. There was now some scope for the Ferring bowlers and each rose to the challenge with good performances that kept Sussex University to 161 all out. Jake Awde bowled with great accuracy and pace and took a key wicket in his second spell. Sudantha Da Silva was the second opening bowler and bowled a teasing line and length that produced 2 for 17.  Father and son combination of James and Ralph Roberts kept the opposition very quiet and took 3 wickets between them, Ralph showing great maturity and rewarded with his first wicket playing in the senior side.  Colin King and Dave Groombridge also took wickets, while Chris Tams helped mop up the tail with 2 for 8.  A memorable win for Ferring played in good spirit and perfect weather.
