After 6 matches played this season NM&G retain their unbeaten run. Although the weather has sometimes been against us, the team have managed to get in a good number of games so far and have seen some notable performances and have some excellent and keenly contested matches. We also have a number of new players this season and it is always great to see new faces.

Matches played to date:

10th May 2015 – Whitchurch V NM&G (Away)

Whitchurch batted first and scored 86 all out. 2 wickets were taken each by Harvey, Lane and Devas.  Manser and Bowden opened for NM&G and could not be uprooted by the Whitchurch bowlers, scoring the required runs between them,  Bowden scoring a careful 18 and Manser slashing wildly for 54. With 15 extras awarded this gave NM&G the match.

17th May – NM&G V Oving (Home)

It was great to see Oving raising a team and we hope to make this into a regular annual fixture.

NM&G opened the batting and some competent performances were given by Manser, Lane, Williams, Woolrich and Folkes.  All 35 overs were bowled leaving Oving with a target of 222. Although they made a spirited start with the opener Sinden making 53, this target was beyond their reach and they ended on 123. A win for NM&G by 99 runs. Easterbrook was top wicket taker with 2 wickets for 22 runs.

21st June – NM&G V Kimble (Home)

NM&G were put into bat and achieved 158 before being all out in 34 overs.  A target of 159         was certainly possible for Kimble but this was prevented largely by the excellent bowling of   father and son team Pete and Oscar Williams, who between them took 7 wickets a really       outstanding performance and to see a father and son playing cricket together like this on         our beautiful sports field is really what it is all about. Kimble ended on 111 all out, giving                 another notable victory to NM&G.

28th June – Mursley V NM&G (Away)

NM&G opened the batting and there was a good all round performance by the team led by       Pete Williams on 44, gave NM&G a total of 177. Mursley attacked the target strongly but        after a mid-wicket collapse ended on 144 all out and another win for NM&G. Folkes gave       a lovely bowling display, taking 3 wickets for 33.

5th July – NM&G V Cublington (Home)

Once again NM&G were put into bat and we were treated to a superb batting display by Ludlow who hit 88 before finally being caught. NM&G ended on 217 for 8 wickets and Cublington had a mountain to climb. They ended on 122 all out a win for NM&G by 95 runs.

12th July -NM&G V Chiltern Gypsies (Home)

This annual fixture is always a good match and marks the early death of Chris Lake who played for Chiltern Gipsies for over 10 years.

NM&G opened and club captain Bowden scored a steady and impressive 82. NM&G ended up with 189 for 7 wickets with notable batting performances from Bennion on 36 and Ludlow on 30. NM&G looked comfortable until Matt Brightwell came in at number 5; he quickly got into his stride and ended up hitting 6 sixes including one right over the clubhouse! At the last over the Gypsies needed 10 to win off 6 balls, after tight bowling by Bennion and heroic use of his body as a barrier by Lane, 4 was required off the last ball. Bennion launched a beautiful bowl, Brightwell struck a fraction too early and the stumps were down. A real cliff hanger and a very enjoyable game for all involved
