2nd Results

Steeple Langford’s II had a close call as they took on Bramshaw III. After being put into bat, Steeple Langford got off to a slow start, but a good partnership from Andy Foyle (39) and Adam McNeilly (42) put them in a commanding position. A cameo from Tom Stobbs (21) helped to add to the total, but a flurry of wickets meant Langford finished on 175-9.

In their reply, Bramshaw didn’t get off to a great start, losing early wickets. Despite this set back, they fought back hard, setting themselves up at 120-3. However, John Wall (45) holed out to Jay Short, swinging the game back in Langford’s favour and a beautiful spell from Adam McNeilly (3-30) put Langford firmly in command. Although Bramshaw weren’t done there, as Phil Curl (36) took Bramshaw to within 10 runs before he was bowled by Mark Thompson (4-38). This left Langford to clean up the tail and win the game by 9 runs.
