CONGRESBURY travelled to Hambrook for their last away fixture of the season and came back with a fairly easy six-wicket win.Winning the toss and asking Hambrook to bat was a good move as the home team were soon in trouble against an accurate opening spell by Lewis and Ashman. Lewis got the first breakthrough, bowling Snell for five and four overs later Ashman got in on the act by bowling the other opener, Armsby, for six. By this stage Hambrook had limped to 16-2 after 14 overs and it was clear that they were going to struggle. Wickets fell on a regular basis and only Kislingbury looked anything like comfortable, but he was trapped leg before by Baker having scored 16. In the end they were all out for a disappointing 80, with extras top scoring with 20. All five Congresbury bowlers used contributed with wickets, with Baker producing the best analysis with two wickets for only five runs off his four overs.In reply, Congresbury started off carefully and had almost reached the half-way stage when Palmer was bowled having made a hard hitting 27 out of the opening partnership of 35. As they neared the required total, Lewis went for 10 and he was soon followed back to the pavilion by Castle and Barlow who were dismissed cheaply. However at the other end Storey was looking secure and the final result was never really in doubt. Brean put the home side out of their misery when he hit his first ball for six to win the match.This was a competent win for Congresbury that keeps them near the top of the league.
