Heathcoat victors in T20 decider

Heathcoat victors in T20 decider

Fortunately it is not often that the words humiliating and embarrassing have been heard at Kensham Park over the past decade. Sadly those are just the words being used to describe the hammering dished out by Heathcoat in a one-sided Mid Devon Twenty20 Final. To be fair to the hosts the side they fielded was… Continue Reading

Midweek XI vs Bournville – 23rd July 2012

The Bradninch Midweek XI might well have got a right royal beating by a very useful visiting Bournville CC side, but there were many positives to draw from the match. Where to begin? The Kensham Park faithful were treated to a most impressive first game in the Bradninch Midweek XI colours of Ottery St Mary… Continue Reading

2nd XI vs Barton – 21st July 2012

Gary Newall rolled the clock back to stroke his way to a glorious century in what sadly proved to be a losing cause as the 2nd XI were edged out by visiting Barton II in the closing overs of a compelling contest. On an exceptional surface to bat on (one of course wonderfully nurtured and… Continue Reading

1st XI vs Torquay – 21st July 2012

The Bradninch senior side slipped to a disappointing third defeat of the Premier Division season, beaten by five wickets in a low scoring affair at Torquay.

Will Squire gains county honours

Will Squire became the latest Bradninch player to get county honours when he appeared in the Devon Under-19 side that played, and won up at Wolverhampton. Squire joined Matt Golding in the side and he sent down his nine overs to return the healthy figures of 2-29 as the hosts were restricted to 156-9 in… Continue Reading

Golding and Street bat side back into top three

Bradninch completed a comprehensive eight-wicket Kensham Park success in the Mid Devon derby against Sandford. Dan Milligan trapped David Dredge, son of Somerset legend Colin Dredge, leg before without a run on the board and the die was cast for what would become a very good session for the home bowlers. It got even better… Continue Reading

2nd XI vs Sandford – 30th June 2012

It was very much a case of rolling back the years for the Bradninch 2nd XI as three players who graced the side back in the early eighties were reunited in the game at Creedy Park where Francis Clark League 2nd XI A Division leaders Sandford were the hosts. Skipper Rob Acton dug deep into… Continue Reading

Three’s the magic number in Under 13s’ hat-trick victories

Bradninch Under-13s claimed a third successive victory with an 11 run win in the Mid Devon derby against Sampford Peverell. It was a wonderful night of ‘firsts’ for the side – the first time a batsman has reached the retirement total of 40, the first time we have seen a six hit, and of course… Continue Reading

U15s vs Exeter – 27th June 2012

Under-15 coach Chris Acton praised his charges after they were well beaten by visiting Exeter. However, despite the margin of defeat – a whopping 154 runs – there really were lots of positives to be drawn from the side’s very first outing of the season. None more so than the splendid contributions of the three… Continue Reading

Putt powers Under 13s to second successive league triumph

Josh Putt served up the match-winning all-round contribution as the Bradninch Under-13s made it two wins from two in their Bradleys East Devon Youth League campaign. Once again a feature of their meeting with Culmstock was the wonderful spirit the match was played in, made all the more impressive given so many of the players… Continue Reading
