Redbourn II 151 lost to Old Cholmelians 160 by nine runs
REDBOURN II lost by the small margin of nine runs to Old Cholmelians in an exciting low scoring match.
With two wickets in hand and 10 to win off the final three overs, the odds were slowly swinging towards Redbourn with skipper Antony Mauder still at the crease on 50*.
The Old Cholmelians skipper John Zani brought back his opening bowler Gibberd who bowled Peter Cridland and had Martin Benfield trapped leg before to wrap up the match.
Old Cholmelians had batted very slowly, crawling to 86-6 off their first 43 overs but a final onslaught from Sherry pushed them up to a more respectable 160 all out from their 53 overs.

Darren Bassill bowled tightly as did Peter Cridland and George Naismith, but the pick was Dan Darvell who took three wickets and finished off the innings.
Darvell also scored a season best 36 coming in at number nine to keep Mauder company as the pair rescued Redbourn's replay which had sank at one point, to a poor looking 64-7.
He departed at 127, but the last two wickets fell at 151 and with them went Redbourn's hopes of a tight win.
REDBOURN'S Sunday XI's both lost to complete a disappointing weekend for the club. The home side were comprehensively beaten by Walthamstow with Toby Ascroft's 62 the highlight for Redbourn as they made 154 in reply to Walthamstows 266.
The away side travelled to Studham and almost pulled off an unlikely victory.
Having only managed to reach 122 from their 40 overs with no batsman getting past 22, Redbourn managed to reduce Studham to 95-9, before a last wicket partnership of 30 saw them home.
On the positive side there was a personal best of 4-30 for Andy Finch and also excellent performances in the field from juniors Luke Dinwoodie, Jack Mahon and Toby Savill.
