Southwold’s game against league leaders Kesgrave was ended after a heavy rain shower at tea saw the match abandoned. In the first half of the game, Southwold were able to rack up 190/7 as captain Gareth Gorst-Allman scored 103 to anchor the home team’s efforts.
Gorst-Allman won the toss and he and opening partner Alex Britten got off to a good start, putting on 47 for the first wicket before Britten was run out following a mis-communication with his skipper for 19. Making his 2015 debut for Southwold, Ben Wilgoss joined Gorst-Allman and was busy at the crease for his 37, using his feet to the slow bowlers well and running hard. However his dismissal triggered a collapse for the home team as Kesgrave began to claw their way back, with several Southwold batsmen falling looking to continue the run scoring. The home team’s captain brought up his century with his 17th boundary before too departing in the pursuit of runs at the end. Alex Manning played well for 18* before tea, and the rain, brought an end to the match.
Southwold are at home for both Saturday’s and Sunday’s games next weekend, against Horsford and Ipswich Caribbeans, respectively.
