Pagham batted first and where soon 26 for 2 but a partnership of 99 between Jack Stannard 65 and Ryan Barratt 54 saw the away side get control of the game. Although Pagham lost wickets regularly useful knocks of 29 from Stuart Hanks and 21 not out from Richard Bird got Pagham to 229 for 9 after 53 overs. Ed lamb 3 for 28 and Chris Etherington 3 for 53 were the pick of the Steyning bowlers. The Steyning batsmen in reply could not come to terms with the pace of Rico Webb 6 for 87 and the guile of Justin Scott 2 for 34. When Sean Rutter removed David Kennett for 38 Steyning were 122 for 9 and Pagham looked to be heading for an easy win. But Chris Etherington batted solidly for 29 and supported by Andy Isaacs 19 not out saw the home side come with 5 overs of getting an unlikely draw but Pete Cotterill however bowled Etherington with a superb delivery and Pagham earned their third win in a row.
Well Done Pagham
