The home side batted first and lost an early wicket to a well taken catch by Duncan Warner off of the bowling of Connor Beeching, and Jack Tidey also claimed an early wicket before Lloyd (53) and Parsonage (47) compiled a 91 run partnership as Harlton made inroads into the Steeple bowling attack.

In reply, Max Carlton and Tidey put together a partnership of 59 off of 10 overs to give Morden a bright start before Tidey was dismissed for 12.
