3rd xi vs Madeley



Sunday saw the 3rd xi entertain Madeley who duly won the toss and asked the 3rd xi to bat first.


Chris Scott top scored with 72 ably supported by Matthew Jones Snr (46 & jug avoidance) and Mark Smout (22) in the 3rd xi’s competitive total of 195 all out. The pick of the away bowlers were openers Lewis Davies (4-33) and Dan Kearsley (3-19) as 8 of the 10 wickets went down bowled. Definitely a day to bowl straight!


Allan Anson (30), Callum Hodson (27) and Liam Kearsley (26) played well in Madeley’s chase, however, an inspired bowling display from Mark Smout with a BHCC personal best 5-20 saw the wickets tumble as Madeley were eventually bowled out for 132 giving the 3rd xi a very welcome 24 points!


The 3rd xi head to local rivals Reman Services on Sunday looking to carry on the good form!
