Doctors lost to Set Square by 33 runs


Set Square       150 for 6


Doctors           117 for 7


    An excellent opening spell by Robert Seymour (1-16) was rewarded, at the third time of asking, by an lbw verdict against Tyrone Ash.  This presaged a fine 50 run partnership between Dan Matthews and Henry Owen which was only ended when both retired on 26 not out.  A brief cameo from Keefa Watson (11) was concluded when he was lbw to Andrew Paisley and Doctors regained control through good bowling by Paisley (2-26) , Phil Barker (2-11) and Will Ogle.  Keeper Tom Millard took a good, diving catch to dismiss Julian Frazer and Tom Adams also held a good catch at deep midwicket to give John Ogle (1-17) his sixth wicket for Doctors.  The game-changing passage of play came in the last two overs from which Set Square plundered 32 runs, mainly due to the hard hitting of Ollie Rew (27 n.o.).


   Doctors made a hesitant start against fine quick bowling from Matthews (1-10) but then Richard Budd and Will Ogle put together a good stand worth 43 runs.  Ogle (17) was caught and bowled by Keefa Watson (1-14) and Budd retired with a well-compiled 26.  There were promising starts from Rob Adcock (14) and Adams (11) but wickets from W.Staniland (1-10) and Rew (2-6) meant that Doctors fell way behind the required rate.  Paisley was unlucky when a ball from Owen (1-9) hit his pads and grazed off stump; Mike Watson (1-21) took another wicket and, despite attacking flurries from Barker (12 n.o.) and Shay Keohane (13 n.o.), the result was never in doubt.
