Stevenage II v Hertingfordbury CC 1st XI on Sat 24 Jul 2010 at 1.00
Match was Drawn

Match report Hertingfordbury batted first on what looked like an absolute belter of a wicket. Stevenage got off to a great start and after 7 overs the score was 15 for 3 after some tight bowling from Nevill, who snared Gareth George and Mark Gibbons in consecutive deliveries. The recovery was led at first by Dan Gronert with a typically bullish 69. Edward Palmer put the Stevenage bowlers to the sword with a terrific 122 not out, with 6 sixes and 12 fours, making him the first centurion for Hertingfordbury in Division 3. Rymer gave him solid support and 258 was a decent score considering the poor start.

Jim Beckett opened the bowling and took the first scalp with a well taken caught and bowled and in keeping the run rate down allowed Gareth George to attack with some vicious in-swingers. George bowled very well and went on to take 5 wickets for 77. Gronert senior took a blinding catch much to the disbelief of the batsman that had absolutely smashed it at him. Once Stevenage went into a defensive mode it was difficult for Hertingfordbury to take any further wickets in what was an excellent batting surface. Benton played well to reach 59 not out and some big hitting from the Stevenage lower middle order allowed them to get some batting points, albeit well short of a winning total.
