1st xi vs Newtown


The 1st xi travelled into Wales looking to make it 4 wins on the bounce as they continue to recover from the start to the 2014 season.


Batting first, the 1st xi were in relative trouble at 71-4 before Llyr Thomas and former Newtown player Ricky Davies came together, putting on a unbeaten 176 for the 5th wicket. Ricky Davies ended up with 41* but it was left to Llyr Thomas to make his first century for BHCC ending on 107* in the 1st xi’s daunting total of 247-4. Craig Davies plugged away for the home side claiming 2-45.


In reply, opener Steve Davies (42) played well before becoming one of Henry Dawson’s 3-37 but it was left to Jamie Dean to rip through the lower Newtown order despite the best efforts of Tom Foulkes (30). The home side were shot out for 150, Jamie Dean ending up with 4-16 and 24 points for the 1st xi.


The 1st xi face the tough trip to local rivals Wem on Saturday hoping to make it 5 in a row.
