Hook (112-8) lost to Lawrenny (114-2) by 8 wickets

Lawrenny’s bowlers produced a solid all round display before an unbeaten 56 from opener Harry Thomas saw them to an eight wicket win at Hook.

The home side were put in and their innings centred around No 4 Jake Wicks, who hit two sixes and three fours in his 41, while Jacob Lay made 16 which included a four and a maximum.

But the visitors were on top throughout as Kurtis Marsh took 2-39, including the important wicket of Wicks, Rob Williams 1-20, Ryan Morton 2-26 and Jamie Lewis 2-24.

In the end, it took an unbeaten ninth wicket stand of 26 from Dai Hopkins (11 not out) and Callum James (15 not out) to take Hook over three figures.

The hosts then had a glimmer when Brennan Martin clean bowled Marsh (9), but Thomas and new signing Kyle Marsh put on 61 to take matters to 96-1 before the latter was skittled by Bradley Flood for 28 (three fours and a six).

But Thomas was unperturbed as he finished unbeaten on 56, his measured knock containing nine fours and two sixes, and he was joined by Phillips in finishing the job in the 17th over.
