Weekend Roundup 6th / 7th May

The first weekend of the 2017 league season saw the 2nd XI win their inaugural Surrey Championship fixture, whilst the 1st and 3rd XI’s suffered heavy defeats.

Long Ditton’s 1st XI posted a formidable 273-7 in 45 overs. James Robottom was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets, but the Hill could not stem the flow of runs. The reply never really got going, only James Newton-Savage (46), Tom Hampton (23) and Robbie Coates (22) offering any resistance.

The club’s first ever foray into the Travelbag Surrey Championship saw the 2nd XI coast to a 7-wicket win against Old Emanuel. Tom Rose took 3-33 as the visitors were bowled out for 206. Stuart Barrs-James led the chase with 63 not out, ably supported by John Cadogan and Shadab Ahmed making 39 apiece.

A big opening stand by Dorking’s Davies and Ovens meant the 3rd XI facing a target of 242. Skipper Umakant Saraswat taking 4-23. Despite 40’s for Ajmal Bhatti and Sean Lee-Rice, Hampton Hill were dismissed for 166.

A friendly 4th XI also took the field on Saturday, going down to defeat at Cranbourne, the highlight being a maiden senior 50 for Massimo Campanale.

Sunday saw a depleted 1st XI take on Chaldon CMO in the first round of the Fullers League Cup. After a promising start, Chaldon were bowled out for 160. Four wickets for Robbie Coates and two each for David Coates, Jack Fullicks and Ryan McCartney. Tom Hampton led from the front with an unbeaten 83, supported by Jamie Sones (46). Hill reached their target with 15 overs to spare to secure a home, 2nd round tie against Lingfield.

The Sunday Away XI fell to a 97 run defeat at Brookwood.

A busy week ahead with all five of our age group teams in action. Home games for the U12’s (Monday), U15’s (Tuesday) and U13’s (Thursday) along with away games for the U11’s at Chiswick & Whitton, also on Thursday. The U10’s travel to Teddington Town on Friday evening before playing NPL at home on Sunday morning.

League action this week sees the 1st XI travel to Old Paulines, the 2nd XI at home to Maori Oxshott and the 3rd XI away to Kingstonians.

Two games are planned for Sunday, at home to Spelthorne and away to Ewhurst
