Nick Taylor and Jack Anglberger put on 105 for the first wicket - the 61st century opening stand in Waresley history.

After Nick was dismissed for 67 and Jack (40) the rest of the order chipped in with useful contributions to take the score to 193-8.

The visitors’ response reached 83-2 when Michael Ninneman (3-40), Joe Colebrook (2-34) and Gary Cole (4-31) induced a collapse which saw the last eight wickets fall for just 42 runs.
