Datchworth 167-5 President's XI 100-10

DARREN Croucher was in glorious form with the bat as Datchworth hosted their annual President's match for the Jimmy Little Memorial Trophy.

Croucher's 70 not out was the linchpin in helping his side to post a useful 167 on August Bank Holiday Monday.

Brother Merv (3-30) and Shad Kamali (3-20) were the main threats on a damp wicket as the invitation side featuring players from Knebworth Park, Datchworth, Letchworth and WGC were bowled out for 100.

Ed Tucker looked in great form and able to win it single-handedly.

The WGC all-rounder made an aggressive 22 before an outstanding left-handed catch on the boundary ended his innings.

From then on it was always going to be tough going for the visitors and they were all out 67 runs short in 33.1 overs.
