Weather is the only winner


The weather was the only winner this weekend as all Saturday matches were either incomplete or abandoned.

The 1st XI was on track for their third consecutive win on Saturday until the rain came down and stopped the game.  At home to Ash the team put the visitors into bat and Owen Harrison (4 for 28) picked up two early wickets wickets. Owen, Tyler Wassell (1 for 22) and Harry Mantle (2 for 28) picked up more wickets as the visitors fund themselves 72-5.   Ash lower order stood fast and although William Cosstick (2 for 46) and Ricky Dale (1 for 52) picked up further wickets the batting team managed to reach 187 for 9 in their allotted 50 overs

After an early wicket Captain Mat Lewis (45) and Ricky Dale (33no) helped Bapchild reach 106 for 5 off 28.1 overs before the rain came down and the match was called off.
