1st xi vs Frankton


The 1st xi headed to Hardwick Park to take on Frankton looking to avenge the previous weeks defeat to Reman Services.


What a difference a week makes after last weeks batting collapse, the 1st xi found runs much easier to come by in their total of 223-8 from their 50 overs. Ian Gillespie made a welcome return to make 87 at the top of the order whilst there were also runs for Llyr Thomas (31) Andy Flann (29) and Henry Dawson (24) whilst the chief tormentor with the ball for the home side was Thomas Welti snaring 4-40.


The Frankton opening pair of Thomas Welti (22) and Nalaka De Silva (38) looked well-set but once they had both been removed by Chris Stevens, the rest of the Frankton lineup seemed to fold. Henry Dawson took 3-32 but the star of the show was Stevens as he took a career-best 7-30.


With 24 points in the bag, the 1st xi head back to the BCG to take on Albrighton next week with 5 games to go in the 2014 season.
