Cricket: A return to winning ways
Posted on July 7, 2011
The Bray 1sts left skipper Norris feeling a whole lot happier this week after a solid all round performance saw off Elstow at The Rye. Batting first the Bray compiled 226 on a good wicket with Harris (46), Norris (41), Flecknell (38) and Pearson with a late-on assault (30*) all chipping in. In reply only Rani Thiarra (38) held up the Bray's push for victory, as the pace of Ellerton (3-20) meant they finished 144 all out from 39.5 overs. In support of the bowling the Bray ground fielding was very good, the only blemish being a couple of dropped chances (Harris & Barker, hold your hands up!!) which didn't prove crucial on this occasion.
This week the Bray are off to New Bradwell, traditionally a tough fixture on a very good wicket, there's also the small matter of fantastic teas to look forward to.....Mmmm profiteroles :)
