2nd xi vs Newtown


Newtown arrived at the BCG looking to halt the 2nd xi’s incredible winning run at the start of the 2014 season.


Bowling first on a sultry summer Saturday, Andy Oliver steamed in to claim his first 5-for of the season ending up with 5-34 in Newtown’s total of 163 all out. Young spinner Henry Preece claimed both of the top-scorers for Newtown in his 2-33 getting the wickets of Jack Morris (49) and Matt Humphreys (29).


James Plant (81*) played superbly to bat through the 2nd xi’s reply as BHCC came out on top by 6 wickets. Mike Barlow (31) steadying the ship after two batsmen returned to the clubhouse without troubling the scorers. Danny Foulkes (3-62) tried his hardest to limit the 2nd xi’s scoring but another 20 points were wracked up for BHCC in 42 overs.


That now makes 7 wins out of 7 for the completed games this season, an incredibly run that the 2nd xi will look to maintain next week.
