Hawkley (127 all out) beat Broadhalfpenny Brigands (110 all out)

Played at Broadhalfpenny Down on Sunday 17th September 2017

Hawkley’s season concluded with a visit to Broadhalfpenny Down, the cradle of English cricket.

The home side won the toss and invited Hawkley to bat on a pitch with uneven damp patches where overnight rain had run under the covers.  The visitors lost their first wicket in the third over with the score on 11 after which Henry Shore played a good innings supported by Nick Hudson, taking the score to 45 before Hudson was run out.  After Shore was bowled for 25 skipper Hallam Brown hit a rapid 38 including two sixes and a four before losing his wicket to Trussler.  Magan Singodia then marshalled the tail with an attractive 24 which included four boundaries.  Hawkley’s innings finished on 127, below par but looking defensible in difficult batting conditions.

The Brigand’s reply got off to a stuttering start when a smart bit of fielding by Keven Hiscock ran out Trussler and Steven Singleton bowled Woolvine to leave the Brigands two wickets down with only six runs on the board.  Jay and Goodyear patiently set about rebuilding and had taken the score to 55 before Nick Hudson bowled Goodyear.  John Marden bowled Peach and then ran out Osmond with a reflex throw after fielding from his own bowling.  Jay meanwhile continued to score freely, passing his personal fifty and the target seemed well within the Brigand’s reach while he remained at the crease. Henry Shore struck in his first over and Singleton returned to the attack to take another wicket to leave the game well poised with 27 runs needed from six overs and three wickets remaining.  Shore then gained the vital breakthrough by bowling Jay for a fine 62 and from then on the only question was whether the three remaining Brigand’s batsmen could survive five overs to salvage a draw.  Shore bowled Bates in the penultimate over and the Hawkley fielders closed in around the final pair as Singleton bowled the last over, claiming Harris LBW with his second ball to end Hawkley’s season with a notable victory.
