Bromsgrove Cricket Club
September 2017 Winners
1st Les Irving (£100)
2nd Paul Munn (£30)
3rd Justine Marshall (£27.50)
Success for our Under 10s
Bromsgrove U10s are county champions for the second year running beating
Wightwick and Finchfield by 4 wickets.
Wightwick and Finchfield posted a
competitive total of 84 on a very wet wicket but Bromsgrove batted very
sensibly and knocked the runs off with three overs to spare thanks to
31 (retired) from Will Dallaway and 23 from James Battelley.
The wickets were shared between the Bromsgrove bowlers and 8 of the 20 overs in the Wightwick and Finchfield innings were bowled by Bromsgrove U8 juniors.
Well done boys!
Success for our Under 11s too!
Bromsgrove U11s beat Droitwich on Sunday to become county knock out cup
champions. Batting first Bromsgrove scored 98 all out with Oliver Holden
and Lucas Ingram both scoring 30 retired.
Droitwich battled hard and kept chipping away at Bromsgrove's total setting up a very tense and nerve-wracking finish. Needing just 5 to win, Lucas Ingram caught and bowled Droitwich's last man with just 3 balls remaining.A great game of cricket on a very cold and blustery day.
Well done lads and lasses.

|Despite the 1st XI’s fixture eventually being abandoned due to rain, the match lasted long enough for Jayden Levitt to score the runs required to take his personal Birmingham League tally over the 1,000 run milestone. Massive congratulations on a superb season. Bromsgrove were 149-2 when the weather took it’s toll. The abandonment and Bridgnorth’s victory at Smethwick meant that the 1st XI finished a very credible 5th in the league.
The 2nd XI’s convincing 102 run victory against near neighbours Ombersley was enough to ensure they finished 4th in league on their much anticipated return to Division 1. Tom Green top scored with 93 at the Boars posted 224. Tom Russell (3-46) and Matt Banham (3-31) were again in the wickets as Bley were bowled out for 122 in the 29th over. Matt Banham played in 11 games but only batted 4 times, 3 of which were not out and meant that he averaged exactly 100 with the bat.
The 3rd XI scored 24 points at Hallow but it was not quite enough to stop Hanley winning the league by a single point. Tom Downing took 3-21 as their hosts were bowled out for 106. Paul Husbands (29) and Sam Johnson (31 not out) were the key contributors as the Vengaboars chased down their target of 107 in 19 overs.
The Cavaliers made Enville battle for victory in a low scoring game at the SGP. The homestead were dismissed for 132 after Enville’s James Willis took 8-31. In reply Josh Searle bowed 17 overs at a cost of just 22 runs as Enville were pressured into batting 50 overs to secure the victory for the loss of 4 wickets.
