Match Report

In the first match of the season, Conference recorded a convincing victory defeating the School by 218 runs. Batting first, Conference made a slow start against the accurate opening attack of Rowe and Turpie and lost an early wicket. The School’s support bowlers could not maintain the early pressure with Glennon and Wright consolidating to share a second wicket stand of 79 before the latter departed for 35. Pemberton joined Glennon to add a further 79 runs before the fall of the third wicket. Glennon (85) and Pemberton (58) lost their wickets in quick succession and thereafter there were no major partnerships. Conference declared on 272 for 7 wickets off 42 overs with Harding (a former pupil) making a useful contribution of 31.

In reply, the School’s batsmen never looked comfortable against the pace attack of Smart and Allen losing wickets at regular intervals. The introduction of spin (Guy and Jones) brought no respite and the home side were bowled out for 54 in 18 overs with considerable time to spare. For the School, only Davis achieved double figures and for Conference, Smart was the main wicket taker (5 for 23) with Allen and Guy each sharing 2 wickets.
