A battling performance from Farnham’s first team earned a draw away at Horsley & Send.

Skipper Jim Berry won the toss and chose to bat on a hot day. Andy Cullen continued his good form after his recent whirlwind century for the second team and hit five boundaries in a quickfire 34. Harry Morrogh (42) and Berry (56) added carefully-constructed innings, moving through the gears as Farnham moved to 167 for four in the 45th over.

Late wickets meant Farnham were never quite able to push on and ended on 197 for nine after 55 overs. Jason Grozdanovski (22) and Adam Elstow (13 not out) chipped in to boost the total on a pitch which required batters to play themselves in.

Berry struck early in Horsley & Send's reply, having Ollie Yalden caught behind by Elstow in the fourth over. Zia Ashraf and Tom Fleming added quick runs for the home team, who advanced to 80 for one in the 18th over.

However, spinners Grozdanovski and Jake Henderson took wickets and slowed the scoring to bring Farnham back into the match. Henderson removed Ashraf leg before wicket before Grozdanovski had Fleming well caught by Rob Goldsworthy at long-off.

Three further quick wickets reduced Horsley & Send to 126 for six and brought Farnham close to victory. However, Jack Ellis-Robinson steered Horsley & Send to safety, hitting 30 not out.

Goldsworthy took a wicket in the final over as Horsley & Send sneaked past the target for the winning draw, finishing on 166 for seven.

Farnham's next game is at home to Stoke D'Abernon on Saturday.

Farnham’s women’s softball team notched up another win after a late change of location to play away against Farncombe Wanderers.

After losing the toss, Farnham’s first batting pair made their way to the crease and Natalie Upton hit the first ball of the match for four. Three more fours for Upton in the first over saw the total rise quickly.

Jemima Carver and Sarah Gudgin continued to pile on the runs, and Maddie Armitage and Kelly Read kept their scorecard clean of wickets before handing over to the final pair of Kelly Davis and Amelie Le Jehan. Davis finished Farnham’s innings with a four as the visitors scored an imposing 302 for four.

Farnham opening bowler Anna White took a wicket with the third ball of the innings. Upton, Davis, Gudgin and Carver added to the wicket tally, while Read took an impressive catch. Farncombe Wanderers finished on 248 for eight.
