Cricket: Battling pair hit 170 for Simmons
Posted on June 21, 2006
Eaton Bray 186-8, Simmons 187-1 (Dunstable Midweek League)
Eaton Bray elected to bat on a fairly lively track but managed to score steadily with Darren Kerins (53) Andy Norris (53 no) and John Peacock (119) making the runs.
However, Simmons bowled well throughout and never allowed an Eaton Bray onslaught. Neville and James Clarke bagged five wickets with figures of 3-34 and 2-32.
In response, Simmons lost an early wicket but then a magnificent 170 run partnership won the game with seven overs to spare.
Neville Clarke (62 no) played a good supporting role for left-hander Mark Gear who struck a marvellous unbeaten 109.
