Ludlow Cricket Club's Richard Taylor stars for Herefordshire Cricket Club's second team
10:00am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
LUDLOW Cricket Club’s Richard Taylor was the second highest run-scorer for Herefordshire County Cricket Club’s new second team.
He was among six players who struck half-centuries during the second-strings’ five-match summer campaign.
Taylor struck 53 in the team’s first-ever match - a six-wicket defeat against the Army Under-25 team at Colwall.
Colwall’s Tom Coleman was the team’s leading scorer with 133 runs from three knocks.
Team manager Ian Macklin, a former Herefordshire Minor Counties all-rounder, said he was pleased with the county 2nd team’s campaign.
But Macklin admitted that many players had found it hard to step up to the level needed.
He said the team were looking for new leaders and spinners next season.
Herefordshire lost all five matches but suffered narrow defeats against S t a f fo r d s h i r e Development XI and the Nigerian national team.
