1:00pm Friday 23rd August 2013 in Sport
HARWICH and Dovercourt Cricket Club enjoyed a 20-run win in division five of the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship to put a dent in high-flying St Margarets’ promotion hopes.
The win saw Harwich bounce back from their defeat by division five leaders Tuddenham the previous week.
Opener Tom Luxford top scored for Harwich with a knock of 42 as they posted a total of 182 for eight, before Kamal Sharma claimed three for 38 and Steve Bushell and Richie Bushell took two wickets apiece as St Margarets were restricted to 162 for seven.
Harwich and Dovercourt seconds also won by beating Witham thirds by 109 runs in division eight south.
Phil Lewis’ score of 61 underpinned Harwich’s 253 for nine and Witham were then all out for 144 as Elliott Attrill took four for 41 and Matt Goff three for 31.
The club’s firsts head to Mildenhall thirds tomorrow (1pm start), while the seconds host Kelvedon and Feering thirds.
