Victory for Sunday sides after Saturday wash out

All 4 Saturday teams were washed out at the weekend without a ball being bowled which allows us to focus on some of the other action that took place. On Sunday both the 1st and 2nd XI sides were victorious against Worcester and Beacon respectively.

The Sunday 1st's were set a target of 245 for victory by Worcester on a good batting deck. George Cracknell (top) and Will Bowen put on 154 for the first wicket before Cracknell was eventually dismissed for 54. Bowen went on to score 95 and then Tom Underhill (36*) and Adam Jones (32*) ensured victory in the 40th over.

The Sunday 2nd's had an equally impressive victory. Batting first, Beacon reached 165-9 and were largely held back by Jack Harding who took 4-33 from his overs. In response despite losing some early wickets, Charlie Cordes (65*) and Harry Smith (bottom) combined well to bring about a 7 wicket victory. Smith finished unbeaten on 53.

Meanwhile, the Club statisticians are looking at a couple of areas - youngest player and first to a thousand runs.

We reported earlier in the week that Timothy Barnes may be the youngest cricketer to play in a competitive match for Bromsgrove. At just 5 years of age, he took part in the Under 9 incrediball match over at Astwood Bank last weekend. 

Henry Dwyer is fast approaching the landmark figure of 1,000 runs in a season and all eyes are on whether he can do so before the end of July. Henry has currently scored 931 runs so far this season. Meanwhile, Matt Banham is only one good spell from 50 wickets. The off spinner currently has 46 wickets to his name this year in all cricket.

Under 9's through to Finals Day of incredi-ball competition

14651146815_2c07d8ce54_n Bromsgrove Under 9's have made it through to the regional finals day of the incredi-ball competition after seeing off group rivals Belbroughton, Hagley and Romsley. This is the first time the Club have entered into this well spirited competition and the lads will certainly be looking forward to playing in the finals day.  Team manager, Matt Dallaway, commented that “the way the boys’ all-round games have improved this year is a great credit to them all.  They’ve put in many hours of practice which have obviously paid off.   Both players and coaches have had a lot of fun and thanks to the parents for all their support.”
