Bank Holiday 10 Points for 1XI with Great Win

By

Bank Holiday Monday’s fixture saw Sessay visit Clifton Alliance.

Bank Holiday Monday’s fixture saw Sessay visit Clifton Alliance. Put in to bat, Sessay found
themselves in early difficulty for the second time in the weekend when Sam Grant dismissed
Matthew Till, lbw, and Mark Jackson, caught at slip, in his 3rd over to reduce Sessay to 15 for 2.

Joe Watson became Grant’s third victim, and it was left to Mark Wilkie to do most of the early
scoring. He had reached 30 and was looking well set when he became another Grant victim with
the score on 44, and half Sessay’s line up was back in the pavilion by the 20th over when young
off spinner Tom Brown bowled Nick Harrison for a protracted 2 with the score on just 50.

Jacob Spencer and Tim Hall took the score to 78 before Spencer was bowled by Matthew Montgomery
for 22 and Sessay slipped into further trouble with the score on 83 when Nav Kavikara holed out to
mid off, young off spinner Tom Brown the profiting bowler. Tim Hall and Liam Carver took the score
past 100, only for Hall to be caught at the wicket for a battling 26 with Sessay now on 103 for 8 and
13 overs still at their possible disposal.

Carver and Stuart Peirse then built a significant partnership
to make use of those overs, Carver working the ball around effectively, whilst Peirse drove 3 fours
to keep the score ticking over. The pair had taken the score to 154 when in the last over Carver
holed out at long on for 25, and Peirse was unbeaten on 26 as Sessay closed on 159 for 9, having
given themselves at least something to defend on a pitch which was offering some help to the
bowlers.

After the interval, Sessay got just the start they wanted when Dave Taylor edged the first ball of the
innings to slip as Liam Carver justified Mark Wilkie’s decision to give him the new ball. The hosts
had moved on to 20 when Andrew Simpson edged Stuart Peirse to the keeper, and Navin
Kavikara’s introduction into the Sessay attack paid immediate dividends when he had Greg
Drewery caught at backward point, with the game very much in the balance with Clifton on 44 for 3.

Much at this stage depended from Clifton’s point of view on their impressive South African Matthew
Montgomery, and with Sessay now operating an all spin attack, Clifton seemed to be moving
towards the ascendancy having reached 71 for 3 by the 20th over. The 21st over saw the game
take a sharp turn, as Langstaff, who had seen Montgomery edge his first delivery wide of slip at a
catchable height, trapped Montgomery lbw for 35, and next ball spun a delivery through Sam
Grant’s defences to leave Clifton on 71 for 5. Navin Kavikara built on this double breakthrough in
the next over, having Jake Atkinson lbw for 10, but Clifton rallied in the next few overs as Jacob
Turp and skipper John Gilham took the score to 98.

Turp was then caught at cover as Langstaff took his third wicket, but Gilham and Liam Green kept Clifton’s sagging hopes alive as they took
the score to 116. Significantly and deservedly Langstaff claimed his fourth victim in his last over
when Gilham was caught at the wicket for 16, and when in the next over Matthew Till, having taken
over from Kavikara, bowled Liam Green for 10, Sessay were on the brink. Dave Friend and Tom
Brown defied the visitors for the next few overs, but in the 47th over, Liam Carver struck the
decisive blow, bowling Friend for 7 as Sessay completed a fine come back.

After the trials and tribulations of two days earlier, this was a vital win for Sessay to re-affirm the
belief that they can compete on equal terms in this company
