Cricket: Sunday team win makes it a special weekend
Posted on July 25, 2011
With both the 1sts and 2nds winning on Saturday the Sunday XI travelled to Aston Clinton looking to make it 3 out of 3.
Bowling first Aston Clinton lost regular wickets as Tickell, Roff, Green and Ward all got 2 each and at one point Clinton were reduced to 95-8! Special mention to Tickell, who dropped dangerman Roberts and then ran him out in the same ball! They finished on 146 and on a lovely day the Bray were thinking at tea that they had a chance of pulling off their first win of the season.
In reply an excellent partnership of 125 for the 3rd wicket between the brothers Peacock with Josh (78*) and Ryan (38*) saw them home inside 30 overs and capped a fantastic weekend for the Bray, albeit coupled with some tasteful words being exchanged between the two sides, clearly the opposition weren't too happy as an imminent defeat loomed.
A brilliant effort from what is essentially still a very young team and hopefully having tasted victory they'll want to push for more success through the remainer of the season.
