Revesby Cricket Club continued their impressive form and moved into second place in the table with an excellent win against Boston seconds last Sunday.

Despite the best efforts of the British weather to put pay to the game, both sides persevered and, with the support of the umpire, managed to get the match in following a delayed start.

Revesby won what proved to be a very good toss and inserted the visitors on a green and damp surface.

Accurate seam bowling from all four of the Revesby attack meant Boston never managed to get any momentum to their innings, with wickets falling regularly.

Only a last wicket stand of 15 between J. Lawrence and N. Thurlby gave the scoreboard any semblance of respectability as Boston were all out for 34 in just 22.1 overs.

M. Ridding and D. Hunt took three wickets between them and both J. Lewis and J. Ingamells took three wickets apiece in bowler friendly conditions.

In reply, Revesby chased down the target inside nine overs with M. Twells finishing unbeaten on 21.

J. Lewis was dismissed for 7 when the score was on 18 but no further wickets fells - meaning they secured a nine wicket win.

The victory took Revesby into second place, albeit having played a couple more games than Woodhall Spa - the season’s early pace setters.
