Cricket: Sunday XI Claim Huge Win Over Local Opposition
Posted on September 12, 2011
The Bray Sunday XI have endured a mixed season this year, with some good wins, in amongst big losses and close-run defeats. A core of team players, willing to play every week has been greatly satisfying and 5 new young players have been found this year, to add to our ever-growing club. Yesterday, individual perofrmances all came collective with a very strong performance against local opposition William Simmons.
Bray were put into the field and ripped through Simmons line-up, as they capitulated to 98 all out. Debutant Tom Holloway returned impressive figures of 3-12 from 8 overs and was joined in his efforts by Ryan Peacock 2-28, the ever economical Joe Roff (1-23), Adam Holbrook playing in his first Sunday game since injuring his knee took 1-15 from his 8 overs and Adam Harvey mopped up the tail by taking 2-1 from 1.5 overs.
The Bray openers knew that with a solid opening partnership, the win would be a formality and Kerins and skipper Peacock did just that, with a stand of 51, until the latter was out for 32, going past 1000 runs for the season in the process. Kerins was out for 18, Matt Ringsell added 28 not out in a rapid fashion and combined with debutant Harris (9 not out), Bray won easily.
A great performance that will go a long way to install confidence in such a young and inexperienced team.
