A Week at the Wick ... Seniors Update

After a very successful weekend of Cricket, here is the news from the around the club. 

1st XI hosted Old Pauline and added to a superb start. Some brilliant opening spells from Sam Jones and Nick Browning backed up by Sashi Asokan, Mik Horvath and Rory Blanchard limited the opposition to 185-9 from their 50 overs. Despite a shaky start, Adam O’Mahoney and Caleb Bate saw us home both scoring unbeaten 70s.

2nd XI travelled to Trinity Mid-Whitigtians and got the season off the mark with a convincing win. An excellent bowling unit limited the hosts to 157-9. I Tong (3-28) & J Gillis (2-25). In reply, the chase was completed comfortably with 7 overs to spare. Excellent knocks from both Abdur (56*) and Iain (26) took the game away from trinity to ensure a maximum 20 points.

3rd XI struggled at home against a very strong East Molesey side. Losing two wickets within the first 3 balls of the game limited Wick to a below par 83. Ben Stephens did manage to put up a fight scoring 26. 

In reply, the bowlers showed some fight, taking 5 wickets before the close. Charlie Higgins (2-8) again impressing with the ball.

Another Week at The Wick... Senior Update

Saturday saw a full compliment of fixtures, and while results didn’t fully go our way, we beat the rain to finish all four games. All teams can take positives from their performances!

1st XI visited Trinity Mid Whitgiftian’s on Saturday and set things off in the right fashion. Despite a difficult opening, spin did the damage as Trinity were bowled out for 150. (R Blanchard 4-41, H FitzGerald 2-9). In reply, The Wick got home comfortably winning by 4 wickets with 11 overs remaining. Caleb Bate impressing again with 66.

2nd XI hosted Streatham & Marlborough – A less than ideal start for a relatively new look 2nd XI, however the scores do somewhat flatter the opposition. Amongst SMCC’s 237 there was some proficient bowling (J Gilles 1-43, S Patel 3-41). Promising signs for next week. In reply we never really got close and limped to 111 all-out. It could’ve been worse as The Wick rallied late to reach their eventual total. (E Charlton 37, P Linter 14)

Full Match Report

3rd XI set sail to Beddington – Promotion will bring about some tough opposition for the 3rd XI and yet they showed what they are capable this week against a strong Beddington side. A mix of youth, experience and old age ensured Beddington only reached a total of 202, Charlie Higgins with an impressive maiden 5-for. In reply, it was tough as conditions gradually got worse and wickets fell steadily. A strong 48 from Craig Daniels (in front of Clarence) wasn’t quite enough as Wick fell 18 runs short of the total.

4th XI played host to Egham on a cold and wet Kingfield. Again, things looked positive when The Wick had set Egham 174 to win on a suspect looking wicket. (B Houghton 49, M Steans 42). Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be and Egham got home with 5 overs to spare. (M Singh 4-37). On another day we could’ve easily bagged the points.
