Captain helps secure cricket win

July 27, 2018 by  

Belmont & Edgware cricket club secured a victory over London Maccabi Vale 2nd XI in its most recent match, and the captain played a key role in helping to achieve it.

Having won the toss before the start of the match, the team’s captain Adam Jacobs opted to bat first against a potent line-up of bowlers from Vale that included four still in their teens. Steven Altmann-Richer and Michael Blasebalk were the first in for Belmont & Edgware and they coped with the deliveries during the early stages.

Things took a turn for the worse when Blasebalk was bowled out with his side on 29, but then Jacobs stepped up to the crease. He was up against the Vale captain, Anthony Wise, but proved more than equal to this from the start.

Having taken his team to 46 runs before the interval, Jacobs continued to excel after it by reaching 124, with the help of Altmann-Richer. After the latter was stumped, Jacobs teamed up with Shaj Shulendr, Scott Gerard and Fabray on the way to a total of 238-4 – and personal total of 108.

It proved too much for Vale to peg back when its turn came to bat, with the visitors eventually managing just 160-8 in reply.

Cricket clubs often make use of local stationery printers to help with the creation and printing of items such as fixture lists and match day programmes.
