Old Bloxamists Beaten

Banbury beat the Old Bloxamists by 20 runs in the boiling conditions yesterday.Batting first Charlie Hill and Ed Phillips put on 30 for the first wicket,Phillips[i have batted ,i am going] was finally out for a patient 59,veteran Paul Hill with 54 helped us reach 173 for 9 declared.Early wicket’s from pacemen Todd Gutheridge and Adnan Iqbal soon had the old boys in trouble,enter off spinner James Morgan,he worked his way through the middle order to finish with 3 wickets.This left Hill and Luke Ryan to finish off the tail ably assisted by keeper Kieran Scott with a catch and a stumping.Another great day in the sun was had by all there was even time for a rare siting in the Ellie of the lesser spotted ”first teamer”,strange days indeed!!
