Record stand for Youngs and Williams

Thursday, 16th May 2002.

Haverhill broke their duck in Division Three of the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Cricket Championship thanks to a convincing defeat of Brightlingsea.

Steve Jones’ men removed the Essex boys for 158 after setting 229 for 6. Jones was far more satisfied with the performance as promoted Haverhill eased memories of their opening day debacle.

The captain suffered a twisted ankle in the warm-up, but still managed to take two catches during the game in the slips.

Scott Webb and Bill Moran, who were so reliable last term, got back in the groove in the first 10 overs. Moran scored 27 and Webb 26.

Neil Winter was in no mood to hang around — he hit a lovely six, a four then played on and was back in the hutch.

Jones said: “We had a little bit of a wobble, but then there was two major innings, by Simon Youngs and Neil Williams.

Youngs (76) and Williams (60) put on 147, a club record fourth-wicket stand. Mickey Rinaldi bowled well at the start of the response, but had little luck. Fellow opening bowler Youngs, however, returned 3 for 25.

“It was an excellent all-round game by Simon,” said the captain.

Webb’s economical 3 for 46 helped out before Winter mopped up the tail with 4 for 17.

Jones said: “It was a much improved performance. It was really pleasing to get that first win under our belts.”
