CRICKET: Whittell in fine debut for Rowant

First published in Sport

Will Whittell starred on his debut as Aston Rowant beat Chingford by eight wickets in their Club Conference Cricket Cup first round clash.

A below-par fielding display from the visitors saw the Essex side reach 208-7 off their 45 overs.

In reply, Chris Watling fell early, but fellow opener Whittell stood firm.

He ended on 76 not out and shared a second-wicket partnership of 143 with Richard Cook, who finished unbeaten on 80 as Rowant passed their target with almost three overs remaining.
