All-rounder Hedges claims first five-wicket haul

JONTY Hedges captured his first five-wicket haul and top-scored with 42 in Horspath 4th's 103-run defeat at Charlbury 2nd in Cherwell League Division 7.

Hedges returned figures of 5-47 as Charlbury rattled up 236-8 after being inserted. Openers Richard Nash (57) and Simon Smith (44) led the way before Steve Hicks chipped in with 31, while Owen Dore picked up a wicket on his debut in figures of 1-41 from ten overs.

Horspath's reply got off to a solid start with John Perkins (22) and George Crawford (21) sharing an opening stand of 48, but after they fell only Hedges held up Charlbury. The visitors were eventually bowled out for 133 as Mark Fitzgerald (4-34) and Andy Glass (3-23) did the damage.
