Thomas's purple patch continues as Development XI win!

In Berkshire League Division 3, Falkland Development produced their best
performance of the season in defeating Mortimer by 73 runs.

Man in form Ben Thomas followed up his previous week's century with a
well compiled 53, and he received good support from Gul Afridi (47). Jan
Kriel added 37 quickfire runs and a late flurry from Michael
Stanton-Jones (19 no) and Anthony Riley (12 no) saw Falkland to a
challenging 245 for 7 from their 40 overs.

Mortimer made a solid start through Ian Bowen (21) and Paul Stephens
(24) and always looked well in touch with the target while former
Falkland player Martin Cooper was at the crease, but when he fell for 39
in a fine spell of off-spin by Riley (3 for 29), the game swung
decisively to Falkland. The visitors never regained the initiative and
were dismised for 172 in the 34th over with Michael Robinson taking 2
for 32.
