Hertford 3rd XI Take Positives from Opening Day Loss

By

First game of the season the 3rd team went hunting for a positive start at a damp but bright recreational ground.

On a wet wicket, Captain Codd has no hesitation in bowling first. Dave Beardsley on his league debut for Hertford bowled well in conditions that were helpful to the bowlers, he was well supported by Connor Ives both tying down the openers only on.

A breakthrough gave the number 3 a chance to cut loose and some lusty blows broke the shackles. 95-3 at drinks and then the squeeze came through some tight overs from Osborn and Codd. A solid partnership from Frogmores middle order set them up for a late innings assault however this didn’t materialise. Some impressive fielding in the closing overs restricted frogmore to 199, on that wicket maybe 25-30 over par.

Hertfords reply began steadily and young Oran Riddle showed what the future might hold for another riddle with some impressive strokes. The standout performance with the bat came from Beardsley again with a well compiled 49. With the rate climbing and big shots required a few wickets dented the late innings charge and Hertford finished 138.

Positives to take the from the game from a young bowling attack who stuck at it throughout the innings and some good signs for the season ahead. Notable mention for David Beardsley who showed he can be a valuable member for the season ahead.
