Sunday XI edged out despite two half centuries

The BCC Sunday club XI lost their warm-up game with Newton St Cyres BUT plenty of positives. Great knocks from Luaturo (55), Thom Bunker (58), Ryan Shrewsberry (46) and the not out Will Birley (21) in a score of 197ao – a MASSIVE collapse stopped the team getting a 225 score. NSC got home for the loss of five wickets, three of which were taken by Bunks, one by Luaturo and run-out (Will Birley).

It was super to see Ollie Hardy back playing – he kept wicket which allowed Bunks to have a bowl and send down six overs (3-26).

The youngsters all played their part – Vinny, Riley, Joe, but sadly we only had 10 players on duty.

A full complement is required next Sunday (May 8) when the team launch their Sunday League campaign at Ashburton.
