A CENTURY from Dan Housego failed to stop Wokingham slumping to a four-wicket defeat at Amersham in their last Division Two match of the season.

Having seen his side lose their first three wickets for 40, he came to the rescue with an excellent knock of 123 from 145 balls with two maximums and 12 fours.

It was his third league century of the season and he finishes top of the divisional batting list with 905 runs, at an average of a shade under 70.

Housego dominated the Oaks’ innings last Saturday as the next highest scorer was Jack Wood with 29, while there were 32 extras as the Oaks’ innings closed on 240-7.

All the Amersham top and middle order made useful contributions, with opener Rob Viney providing a solid backbone, taking 103 deliveries in making 54, while Bruce Friderichs remained unbeaten on 33 as Amersham reached their target at 241-6 with nine balls to spare.

Paul Dewick was the pick of the bowlers, taking 4-61 off 10 overs.

Wokingham finished third in the table on 264 points – having been penalised 20 points for a player registration error – behind champions Buckingham Town (331) and runners-up Datchet (285).
