CHIDBROOK CUP 2021
12/09/21: Chidham v Hambrook
Hambrook won the toss and elected to field first
Chidham 165-8 (20 overs)
Hambrook 135-3 (20 overs)
Chidham win by 30 runs
Chidham made it two wins on the bounce after a comprehensive victory over local rivals Hambrook in the 2021 Chidbrook Cup at a sunny Bosham on Sunday afternoon.
Half of the players attended the Barleycorn pub for a pre-match fry up before heading down to Bosham where Hambrook captain Tom Phizackerley won the toss and put Chidham into bat first.
Peterson and Selves quickly made 27 runs and forced retirement and further down the batting order Adjit joined his colleagues back in the clubhouse with a fine batting display of 28 runs. Skipper Davey was bowled for 5 early in the innings by Van Niekerk and O'Donohoe (14) and Wild (4) also got their marching orders when being caught out from a Smith and Phizackerley ball respectively. A. Clark (4) was bowled LBW by Phziackerley, Cummings (12) was bowled by Walmsley, Parker took the wickets of Turner LBW (6 including a fine 4) and Pine (13) with a splendid catch and Pink got a late wicket when Lane (10) was caught on the boundary by Maynard. Peterson and Selves added a few late runs when being called back from retirement leaving Chidham on 165 for 7 off their 20 overs.
While most of the Chidbrook players enjoyed a relaxing tea with their families and friends, Simon Scully-Horner kindly organised a cricket match for the 20+ children in attendance with the younger group just coming out on top.
Maynard and Phizackerley opened for Hambrook and both players secured 25 runs and forced retirement within the first 8 overs to make the unlikely chase a distinct possibility. But the runs started to dry up for the middle order and Parker (11) went LBW to a Davey ball, Van Niekerk (12) was caught behind from a Wild ball and Smith (14) was stumped when trying to launch a Sambhi leg-breaker. Pink (10) and Walmsley (4) added some late runs but Hambrook ultimately fell 30 runs short of their target but on a positive note only losing 3 wickets in the process.
The Chidbrook cup was presented to Keith Davey by the Barleycorn landlady Kelly and both sets of players returned to the Barleycorn for some light refreshments where Davey secured his second win of the day on the club scratchcard.
The overall Chidbrook Cup tally now stands at Hambrook 10 Chidham 6.
Man of the Match: Ajit Sambhi (quick fire 28 runs and a wicket)
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.
