09/05/19: Chidham & Hambrook CC v Milburys CC
Milburys 109-5 (18 overs)
Chidham 115-5 (16 overs)
Hawks won by 5 wickets
A superb 43 not out from Andy Wild helped Chidham & Hambrook to a 5 wicket victory over Milburys in a reduced over match at Bosham on Thursday night. Hawks won the toss and elected to field first with Johnny Maynard producing a top notch performance - taking 2 wickets for just 12 runs in his 4 overs as well as 2 catches. Bosham stalwarts Tom Badger and Dave Richardson took a wicket a piece and a late run out left Milburys on 109-5 off their 18 overs. Rory and Johnny opened for the Hawks and young Maynard, having faired so well with the ball, was unlucky to be run out in the first over. Andy Wild joined Peterson at the crease and the pair were cruising along nicely until Rory was caught mid wicket on 23 runs. Dave Richardson (12) and O'Donohoe (21 runs including a massive six for the Gin King) assisted Wild on his way to an outstanding 43 runs unbeaten. It was left for newcomer big Phil Brindley to smash the winning runs with 11 balls to spare, thus maintaining the Hawks unbeaten start to the season. Report
Chidham & Hambrook Cricket Club was reformed in 2008, some 40 years after organised cricket was last played in our parish. Our villages are situated between the cathedral city of Chichester and the harbour village of Emsworth on the edge of the picturesque South Downs.
We welcome player of all ages and abilities and generally play friendly Twenty20 midweek matches and the occasional Sunday 40 over fixture against teams in and around our local area. We play our home games at the ground of Bosham Cricket Club who kindly allow us to share their pitch and facilities, but our hope still holds that one day we will have our own ground back within one of the villages. The club's nickname is the "HAWKS"
We all enjoy playing cricket and although winning is important we believe in playing the game in the right way, the "spirit of cricket". The social side is also important and the team can often be found in the local Barley Corn pub after matches chatting about the game, drinking beer and playing darts or pool.
