Round-up: Logue’s heroics not enough for Fenstanton

IT’S NOT often that a bowler with figures of 8-31 is left in the shade – but that’s what happened to Fenstanton’s Brett Logue on Saturday.


IT’S NOT often that a bowler with figures of 8-31 is left in the shade – but that’s what happened to Fenstanton’s Brett Logue on Saturday.

Logue put Harlton’s batting line-up to the sword in Division 3B, with six clean-bowled wickets in his haul, restricting the visitors to 156 and securing Fenny’s first bowl-out of the campaign.

But his heroics were bettered by Harlton paceman Graham Harraday, who claimed all 10 Fenstanton wickets at a cost of just 13 runs.

Chasing four runs an over, even against the second-placed team in the league, seemed within reach, but Fenny stood at 24-6 after 10 overs, before Paul Manning and Tommy Newman added 36 for the seventh wicket.

The home side eventually succumbed for a meagre 69 with hitman Harraway mopping up the tail and ending matters in 17.3 overs.

Bowler Robin Kemp took the first five wickets and ended with figures of 7-25.

Openers Zunair Shahid and Ben Austin were dismissed without troubling the scorers, and David added 11. Robert Smith top-scored for Somersham with 34 and, of the remaining order, only Tanatswa Mahonuanyika scored more than one run, meaning the reply fell short 67 all out.
