Jubilant Jenner inspires Geebro to brace of stoolball wins

NICK JENNER racked up 215 runs to help Geebro to wins over Trojans and Rodmill in Division One of the Eastbourne Red Triangle Stoolball League.

Trojans scored 100 in their 14 overs, but Geebro easily passed the target in eleven overs with Nick scoring 73.

Against Rodmill, he smashed 142 in fourteen overs before Rodmill, unsurprisingly, succumbed for 78.

Rodmill also suffered at the hands of Herstmonceux. Danny Simmons scored 34 out of Rodmill’s total of 83, but Tony Riggs’ 30 and Lorna Riggs’ 24 eased Herstmonceux home.

BHK gave Herstmonceux a closer game, setting a target of 127 with Alex Humphrey scoring 42. Charlotte Morris and Paul Riggs took five wickets each as Herstmonceux won with an over to spare.

Trojans bowled BHK out for just 47 with Sharon Lewis taking 4-17 and Cathy Townsend 3-8. It didn’t take them long to knock of the runs. Graham Holman was man of the match against Trojans taking 3-28 as Trojans scored 143 with Matt Sievwright grabbing 56.

In Division Two, Lamb Old Town ended Centra’s unbeaten record. Twelve-year-old Lewes Smith took four fine catches for Lamb which, accompanied by Simon Parks 62 not out and Jayne Dallaway 33, saw Lamb home.

Steve Medhurst took a hat-trick for Red Lion and Alan Williams scored 57 not out as they ran out winners over Old Town Wreckers. David Morgan 47 and Sharon Clay got Wreckers of to a good start, but a batting collapse saw their innings stumble to 107.

Rachel Macherez 32 not out, along with Alan’s 57, saw Red Lion through for the loss of two wickets.

Pegusus recorded back to back wins over Park Royal and Old Town Wreckers. Park Royal scored 102 with Stuart Black 30 and Ali Thompson 28 not out. Lee Kenward’s 39 proved crucial as Pegusus won in the last over. The win over Old Town Wreckers was more comfortable as they ran out winners by 28 runs.

Centra rolled over Stone Cross scoring 143 and then bowling out Stone Cross for 62 with the ever reliable Jacqui Smith taking 6-31 and Max Dyer 4-31.

Shane White’s superb 101 for Willingdon looked enough to give them their first win of the season in Division Three, but Robert Goddard of Victoria had other ideas as he scored 103 and Victoria won with three overs to spare.

Plummer Parsons continue to head the Division Three table with a win over Woolpack. Peter Watter’s 78 topped scored for Plummer Parsons as they chased down Woolpack’s score of 90.
