Berks beat Bucks at Taplow

Loveday rolls back the years and inspires the troops

Skipper Gary Loveday inspired Berkshire Over-50s to a 94-run win over Buckinghamshire Over-50s at Taplow CC.
The Finchampste ​ad batting star smashed a magnificent 115 from 127 balls to put his side firmly in control from the outset.
After winning the toss, Loveday and Gordon Morgan (35) shared an opening stand of 56 before the latter was dismissed by Latif Khan. ​ ​ Andrew Davis was the next to fall with the score on 78 after he was bowled by spinner Rahul Mohindru, but Phil Oxley (34) shared a third-wicket stand of 69 with Loveday before he was run out to make the score 147-3.
Mark Baker and Tony King were swiftly removed by Neil Jones, and when Phil Ridgeway became Richard Bryce’s second run out victim, Berks had lost six wickets for 188. ​ ​ Loveday was stumped by Ian Pulsford off the bowling of Bryc ​e with the total on ​ 211-7 and ​Berkshire were eventually closed ​o​ n 221-8 ​ after 45 overs.
​ In reply, Bucks struggled from the ​start , with Baker (2-18) bowling Simon Prodger and then having Nigel Field caught behind by Davis to leave the hosts on 35-2.
Nigel Trumper ​dismissed ​ Barney Stay before Richard West removed​ Jeff Morris ​, leaving them 57-4. Reading skipper David Hartley then took 4-10 from his nine overs to send Bucks spinning to 96-8.
Pulsford offered some late resistance with an innings for 37 from 4 balls, but their innings closed on 127-9.
Berkshire Over ​- 60s were comprehensively beaten by eight wickets by Kent at Wargrave . They never recovered from a disastrous start which saw them lose three wickets for just nine runs and four for 26. Bill Munday, with 50, and Don Townsin (58no) raised the total to 170-8, but that proved an easy target for Kent.
