Bromsgrove Cricket Club

Successful Saturday for the Boars

Ash Newdick (top) left it late in the day to take the final 4 wickets at Smethwick to ensure the 1st XI's victory by the narrow margin of 4 runs. Bromsgrove had set the home team 202 for victory after Alex Kervezee (64) and Tom Underhill (41) performed with the bat. Bromsgrove were made to work hard in the 2nd innings after reducing Smethwick to 155-8 the score reached 194 before the 9th wicket and finally 197 all out.

The 2nd XI had a far more comfortable victory against Berkswell. Batting first, Bromsgrove raced to 298 from their 50 overs mainly due to Duncan Roke who scored 136. Alistair Hickman (bottom) removed Berkswell's top 4 batters all for under 10 runs each but the visitors were defiant in the middle overs and managed to battle it out until Will Tuffin took the final wicket in the 40th over.

The 3rd XI had the narrowest of winnings draws. Having set Martley 269 for victory thanks to Rich Hope (81) and Chris Burford (85), Martley finished 3 runs short on 266-9.

Richard Barnes was in form for the 4ths. He top scored with 109 and was well supported by Charlie Cordes (71) as Bromsgrove racked up 290 in 45 overs. Martley were all out for 97 in reply after Tom Downing picked up 7-27 on debut.



Worcs 2nd XI vs MCC Young Cricketers in the ECB 2nd XI Trophy


On Friday, we staged the County 2nd XI match versus the M.C.C. Young Cricketers in the ECB Trophy Competition and hosted a lunch for our sponsors, other members of the local business community and our vice presidents.

The County, fielding several 1st XI players and captained by Alexei Kervezee, who has played for the Club often during the last few seasons, batted first and scored 378-6, with Matt Pardoe scoring 137, Tom Fell 44, Alex Hepburn 51 and Alexei 26.  In reply the M.C.C. Y.C’s, despite the efforts of Arthurton ( 75 ) and Graham ( 51 ),  fell short at 260 all out, so giving the County a comfortable 128 run victory.

The weather was perfect – perhaps too hot !! – the ground looked a picture and the Committee wish to thank all those members of the Club who volunteered their services and thus contributed to the success of the day.  We hope that we shall be able to stage a similar fixture next season.
