THE Belhus fifth string chased down Hadleigh & Thundersley’s 82 - but it took them seven wickets to do it.

Stewart Farr (4 for 17) and George Maidment ( 3 for 12) combined superbly to bowl out Hadleigh & Thundersley for 82.

After tea, and despite chasing a modest total, the Belhus batsmen were soon in trouble at 4 for 3, but then youngsters George Maidment (23) and Josh Reynolds (20) saw their side home to lift them to second place in their division.
