KIRKLEY & Lowestoft Railway first team hosted Horsford on Saturday after having a week off due to East Harling's withdrawal from the league.

The match was played on what could almost be described as a road.

Horsford won the toss and elected to bat Pavier soon struck bowling Hayburn around his legs and his opening partner looking to play the some shots was clean bowled by Pavier breaking the middle stump in the process.

Spencley settled Horsford down and began to build at a decent rate Hunter and Guy began a tight spell of bowling for about 10 overs however Spencley and Webber came together after two quick wickets from Guy and took the rate on. Webber took the ball from outside off stump over to leg side off Spurgeon.

Spencley soon raced on to his 100 whilst Hunter returned to the attack picking up two wickets in which his spell deserved. Pavier eventually picked up Spenceley to a catch down the leg side by Ben Willgoss as Horsford finished on 265-8.

Guy and Hunter set off at great pace in chase of the target set taking 40 runs off the first five overs before Guy ran himself out and Hunter was lbw to what appeared a poor decision off the bat.

Daniels and Willgoss began to build on the start made by the openers but at a slower pace as Daniels hit the spinners whilst Willgoss accumulated.

At drinks Kirkley looked in a position where they could get close to the target set however Daniels and Willgoss fell in consecutive overs bringing Pavier and Ayers together with the rate required creeping up.

Kirkley set themselves up to get close without conceding the game and the pair only started to hit out in the last two overs pushing for the maximum batting points as they finished on 189-4 with Ayers 42 not out and Pavier 28 not out.

MoM sponsored by Dalco: J Pavier.

Kirkley travel to Ashmanaugh this Saturday meeting at Gunton Park at 11am followed by a race night at the clubhouse, all welcome.
