Ansty’s Jake Wilson and Glenn Anson put on 134 for the last wicket to set up a win for Ansty against Pagham.

Having been asked to bat openers Leo Anderson (20) and Tom Woodall (2) saw the score to 24 when Woodall fell to the bowling of Peter Cotterill (5-79). Anderson went with the score on 30 but a stand of 20 between Harry Towler (21) and Jethro Menzies (16) seemed to be getting a grip of the bowling. However wickets fell and Ansty found themselves 95-9. Wilson and skipper Anson then produced the wonderful unbeaten 10th wicket partnership of 134.

Wilson ended on 70 not out and Anson 54 not out to give the visitors a much needed boost. The Pagham innings never got going with Jake Wilson (6-7) and Jethro Menzies (4-3) demolishing the batting for just 23. Highest score was 4.
