WICKET TAKER: Adrian Starling picked up two wickets for Woolpit





Woolpit (184-6) beat Halstead (182)

by four wickets

Woolpit won the toss and decided to field first, but Halstead opener Chris Huntingdon took the attack to the Woolpit bowlers to such an extent that when his opening partner was dismissed by Alex Jackson for just seven the score was already 73.

Hamish Fiddes trapped Huntingdon a few overs later for 66 and Adie Starling — promoted from the second team — continued the form he had shown for them by taking the next three wickets quickly to reduce the visitors to 112-5.

Nathan Crudelli and Chris Wells then whittled out the rest of the batting with Halstead bowled out in the last over for 182.

Woolpit’s reply struggled at the start with Jack Rowett, James Deeley and Will Parker all dismissed cheaply to leave Woolpit on 44-3.

However, Crudelli and Jackson then combined to help get their side over the line ahead of Saturday’s trip to Maldon (12pm).
