Century for Tom Coleman but Herefordshire 2nd lose to Staffordshire Development team
3:00pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Sport
TOM Coleman cracked a fine century as Herefordshire 2nd suffered an agonising two-wicket defeat against Staffordshire Development.
Herefordshire were bowled out for 242 and looked on course for their first win after reducing Staffordshire to 198-7 in the friendly at West Bromwich Dartmouth.
Despite a fine spell from James Tiffen (3-35), Staffordshire squeezed home with just three balls to spare. Previously, Coleman scored 100 from just 114 deliveries and was backed up by Josh Emery (35) and James O’Brien (24) in Herefordshire’s innings.
Jamie McIlroy (3-35) had Staffordshire reeling at 33-3 before Alex McChristie (71) and Jake Thompson (63) resurrected the hosts’ victory hopes.
Herefordshire 2nd have now completed their maiden season after last Sunday’s scheduled friendly against Northants at Wormelow was cancelled.
l MARDEN Cricket Club are holding a community cricket afternoon this Sunday, from 2pm. There will be some six-a-side cricket entertainment and a chance for people to have a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
l WORMELOW Cricket Club will be hosting a 10-a-side limited overs senior tournament at Kennel Field on Sunday.
Wormelow, Burghill, Old Monmothians and, possibly, Canon Frome are taking part in the competition.
