Hi all,

……. and finally

We turned out a 2nd XI on Saturday which was a superb blend of "youthful enthusiasm and experience" ….. you know which side of the equation you are on, when the age of the "3 seniors" was perhaps more than the rest of the team put together!!!

It didn’t prevent the performance of the season from Darren Harvey who picked up 5 wickets for 35 runs in a devastating spell of 4.2 overs. Already promoted Bridestowe didnt know what had hit them!!

The team put up a creditable performance, narrowly losing – any game though which has 480 runs in the day must be good!

….. and finally finally ……..
