WELWYN Garden City's Sunday XI drew with Chingford in a friendly at Digswell Park at the weekend.

The visitors to Hertfordshire found a placid pitch and they carefully got close to 200 in their innings.

WGC skipper Simon Bridgewater was anxious to give all his bowlers a run, without using himself.

After Chris Stainsby had completed a six-over spell conceding only seven runs they all struggled to contain the batsmen.

Young leg-spinner Satish Pardey took three wickets, but with conditions quite against his form of bowling, he conceded 51 runs to get this reward.

Chasing 193, WGC were never really in the hunt.

Dileep Rudraswamy was out cheaply while Matt Hill was nursing an injured foot.

Andy Nolan looked really good for his 36 runs before slapping a poor ball straight to cover.

Then batting with great assurance, young Liam Mitchell hit 37 undefeated runs to ensure that this match was not lost.

WGC finished their innings on a total of 149-8.
