Here is a copy of the IOW County Press report on week 2 of the indoor league

Reigning Champions, Bembridge, made it two wins out of two with an assured victory over Binstead Royals. Batting first, Bembridge amassed 141-3, the main contributors being Lee Thompson (27 not out), Karl Lacey (28 not out) and John Bridge (26 not out). Against accurate bowling from M Obeyeskeye (1-24) and Dan McArthur (1-16) in particular, the Royals struggled to keep up with the required rate and were eventually dismissed for 113. The only notable innings were played Barry Lloyd (29) and Justin Henderson (21).

Cask & Crispin kept their 100% record intact with a four wicket win over IOW Youth. Harry Bradley (33 not out) was the mainstay of the Youth’s innings and Chris Ash returned figures of 2-25 off his three overs for the Crispin. Set 119 to win, the Crispin were given their customary brisk start by Messrs Owen and Ash (25 not out). Robin Price kept the momentum going with 25 not out and the Crispin secured victory in the final over. The pick of the Youth’s bowlers was Sam Rockley with 1-23 off his three overs.

Courtesy of 69 in wides and an innings of 25 not out from Cyrus Dean, Wootton were able to set Young Cavaliers a demanding target of 142, and this proved to be the most exciting match of the morning. Some profligate bowling from Wootton themselves and a captain’s innings from Andy Loudon (28 not out) took the Cavaliers over the finishing line from the last ball of the innings.

A fine exhibition of pace bowling from Billy Clark (1-11) and some reckless running between the wickets allowed Arreton to dismiss West island for just 78. But Arreton were soon in trouble themselves, thanks to an inspired spell of bowling from Glenn Bailey (3-20) and some sharp fielding and catching, and their innings subsided to 64 all out, to give West Island victory by 14 runs.

*And an extra note from me…

After getting out LBW on his first ball, and then dropping a simple catch through over enthusiasm, Dave stringer turned in a great bowling performance (along with all our bowlers) and capped an eventful first match by taking the final wicket to seal a great victory
