BPCC vs Steeple Aston – 1st August 2021

BPCC – 133 – 6 [J Spearman 28 P Boardman 27]

Steeple Aston – 128 all out [R Gokani 7-0-31-2 T Fleming 7-0-27-2]

A sterling effort by David, Nigel, Malcom and others in preparing the wicket allowed this fixture to take place and those efforts were well rewarded with probably the most exciting and close game this season.

The visitors required 13 runs off the final over to win which they failed to achieve as a result of tight bowling from Jake but also because Malcom, quite correctly, had 9 fielders patrolling every inch of the boundary. It was a great team performance with some solid batting, good line and length bowling and some majestic fielding.

Following the match, we retired to the Punchbowl which has become BPCC’s go to pub. A special thank you to all the staff at the Punchbowl who make us, and indeed our opponents feel very welcome every Sunday evening.
