UCS Old Boys v London Maccabi Vale Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 14 Jul 2019 at TBC
London Maccabi Vale Cricket Club Won by 7 wickets

Match report London Maccabi Vale recorded a comprehensive seven-wicket victory away to UCS Old Boys at the weekend to secure their first win of the season in Division One of the Chess Valley League.

A dominant all-round performance from Vale saw them restrict their hosts to a below-par 147-7 off 45 overs, before chasing those runs down for the loss of only three wickets with almost twelve overs remaining.

Whilst most cricket fans' attention was on a somewhat more prominent game at Lord's, this was a crucial fixture for Vale as they came into the match off the back of one defeat and one rain cancellation from their two league outings this campaign.

Electing to bowl first, captain Steven Allweis (2-27) set the tone from the very outset as he grabbed a wicket in the first over of the match. From there, Vale never let their grip on proceedings slip as they produced a complete bowling and fielding display.

Neil Lederman (3-26) bowled with skill to pick up three wickets, whilst Vale deployed two left-arm wrist-spinners for what is believed to be the first time in the club's illustrious history. Allweis returned at the death to claim another victim and, helped by a run out and more controlled bowling, UCS Old Boys could only muster a total of 147.

That was never likely to be enough, even on a challenging surface, and Vale's opening batsmen got the chase off to a solid start.

Daniel Grabinar (39) and Adam Spooner (23) added 55 for the first wicket to negate any potential threat - before Adam Parker (33 not out) and Ben Lederman, with a brutal 32 off 19 deliveries, guided Vale to the finishing line.
