Wright Rips Through Marston

Having won the toss and elected to field on what looked a decent but dry wicket, Marston were soon in trouble, when Beck caught Wareham off the first ball of the game off Josh Megson (7-4-8-2). Wright then joined the party and took his first wicket in his first over, shaping one away from Green who was Caught behind by Ed Phillips. His second wicket came in his next over, when Ross Freeman took a good catch at gully to remove Storey.

Toovey was next to go, once again caught behind off Wright, the ball was shaping late in the air and also moving off the wicket. With both bowlers bowling great areas and offering no bad balls, the pressure just kept building

Megson took the fifth wicket in his 5th over by bowling Miscampbell, which left the visitors on 9 for 5.

A stubourn partnership between Beesley and Green halted the wickets for a few overs and produced the highest partnership of the day, 18!! Wright finally removed Beesley who drove over a yorker and was bowled for 11.

Ross Freeman who was extracting bounce and swing was next to claim a wicket, when having Kempton stumped by Phillips. Wright then got his 5th and final wicket by bowling Green. He ended up with excelent figures of 11-5-14-5, which could of been less, has 3rd man remained in place and the 4th slip removed.

Freeman claimed the final 2 wickets to end with 4.5-0-24-3 as Marston were all out for 47.
