1st XI & 2nd XI secure second league victories

Both the first and second XI secured second league victories on Saturday.

The first XI had a tricky fixture away at Wimblington played on an artifical wicket. Batting first Chippenham struggled to put partnerships together but managered to muster 176-9 in their 40 overs. Wimbligton got off to a slow start but looked to have victory in their grasp before Andy “Big Dog” Holmes took a cruical catch on the boundary. From then on Chippenham kept things tight and Wimblington were bowled out 7 runs short of their target.

The second XI beat March VI at home with Jimmy VDP and Frank Denniff playing key roles in ensuring Chippenham reached 194 after a slow start. March looked to have a great chance before Charles Dore removed their key batsman with a surperb caught & bowled and they fell 35 runs short of the Chippenham total.
