St Albans end their cricket campaign with comfortable victory

ST ALBANS ended their SHL Division One season with a five-wicket victory against Ampthill Town.

The Herts outfit won the toss and elected to field first.

The probing Richard O’Toole, after intimidating the opposition with an imposing dead ball to start the game, took five wickets for a mere 33 runs off 15 overs, including seven maiden overs.

O’Toole’s partner in crime was the aggressive James Rosson, peppering the hapless opposition with bouncer after bouncer, resulting in figures of 3-53.

The innings was finished off by Luke Edwards, taking an agile one-handed catch off of his own bowling.

A superb bowling performance resulted in St Albans only needing 129 for victory.

Various small starts set St Albans on their way to victory but celebrating his 50th birthday, Phil Caley assaulted the opposition bowling attack to make 37 not out, ably supported by the youthful big-hitting talent of Jonny Hall as St Albans won by five wickets.
