Machen 1sts (249 all out) beat Undy & Magor by 69 runs

(Revised target 250 from 45 overs)

UNDY & Magor suffered defeat at Machen, the home side building a tough total of 249 all out despite the efforts of Steve Hepple (4-44) and Richard Hudson (2-42), writes Bob Cypher.

Although U&M restricted seven Machen batsmen to single-figure scores, Devinder Singh (85) and skipper Jon Toghill (75) kept the scorer busy throughout.

In their reply U&M were unable to build meaningful partnerships with Ed Willis (34) and skipper Hudson (33) the two main scorers as their run-chase foundered 69 runs short.
