Actonians Cricket Club 1st X1 v Alexandra Park on Sat 09 May 2009 at 1.00pm
Actonians Cricket Club Won by 102 runs

Match report A magnificent unbeaten 155 by Adam Pearson powered Old Actonians Firsts to a dominant victory over Alexandra Park in the first cricket match of the 2009 season at Gunnersbury Drive.

Batting at number three, the 22-year old Queenslander smashed 6 sixes and 19 fours as Old A’s posted an admirable 261 for three.

Bilal Ali (44) and Tom Hall (24 not out) played sensible supporting roles as Pearson, in his first season in the UK, posted the club’s highest individual score for at least 15 years.

Together Pearson and Ali added 138 for the third wicket. Old A’s new arrival from Oz then skittled out both opposition openers for ducks as Alexandra Palace faded to 159 all out.

Spinners Bilal Ali, Cliff Pile and Faisal Sattar did the rest of the damage, well-supported by excellent work behind the stumps by keeper Dave Mahoney who pouched three victims.

The evergreen Pile’s bouncy off-spin brought excellent figures of 4-40, while Ali finished with 2-40 and Sattar 1-20 as Old A’s ended-up winners in the Middlesex Championship Division fixture by 102 runs.
