Chairman’s match rounds off season

The Chairman's Match 2019

Saturday saw the Chairman’s match signal the end of the season for Bapchild CC

Three teams made up from people who played for the seniors during the year battled it out in a T16 round robin competition.   Philips Pullers got first blood beating the Chairman’s Clubbers and were looking in control in the second match but a spirited declaration opened the path for Sutton’s Swingers to grab their first win.  A 9 over third match saw the Clubber’s pick up a well arranged win leaving all teams on one win each.

The bragging rights were almost sorted out in the deciding bowl-off – Only Lee Taylor hit the stumps for the Pullers while Olly Juniper showed the way for the Clubbers with Ella Hadler and James Longhurst also hitting the stumps but a late charge from the Swingers saw Dan Gunner, Owen Harrison and Ricky Dale saw the bowl off go into sudden death with those who had hit the stumps bowling again.

In true Bapchild fashion none hit the stumps and all three teams agreed to call it a draw and retire to the bar.   The ladies once again put on a fantastic spread of hot mains and some wonderful desserts in the evening .

A great day all round and The Chairman would like to thank all those who took part or came down to support
