Evans turns on the style for Belmont

By James Masters, July 11, 2011

Jonny Evans hit a stunning half-century as Belmont and Edgware 1st recorded a second consecutive league victory.

In-form Evans smashed a classy 50 as BECC defeated West Middlesex by five-wickets after easily reaching their target of 141.

Having seen off Kensington and Chelsea last week, Belmont flexed their muscles once again with another dominant display.

Neil Myeroff (2-9) and Richie Wienburg (3-32) were the pick of the bowlers, while Ashley Connick and Warren Averbuch took two wickets apiece.

After dismissing West Middlesex for 140, BECC made a strong start to their response with Daniel Abrahams (31) and Connick (17) taking the hosts past 50.

Despite losing both men after an encouraging start, the home side kept their cool in the face of some difficult bowling.

A rapid 27 from Wienburg helped BECC move in on their target with Evans hitting the winning runs to complete his 50 and seal the points.

Elsewhere, Simon Durban's 48 was not enough to prevent Newlands & Northwood from defeat after they went down to an agonising one-wicket loss against Goodwill Wanderers.
