1st Team Lose By 7 Wickets Against Cannock

Aston Manor 77 all out

Cannock 78-3


After being asked to bat first at Church Road, Manor had no answer to the excellent bowling of David Womble (5-35) as they were dismissed for a paltry 77. Only Neal Prichard (40) and young Chris Whittock (19) made double figures as too many batsman showed a lack of application on an early season bowling friendly wicket.

The hosts did show commendable spirit in the field and Christi Viljoen bowled with great fire and little luck. The wickets were taken by debutants Hassan Ansari (2-19) and Aziz Aftab (1-25) who both showed promise for the forthcoming season which may be a difficult one without the addition of at least one more quality and experienced player and a better application from the existing talented but inconsistent squad.
