Mixed Results for BrickhillMon 18th Aug

The 1st XI suffered a losing draw away to Thame Town. With Brickhill fielding first, Thame batted solidly as a team as Brickhill struggled to restrict the scoring as Sutcliffe (72), Mushtaq (68) & Beard (43) helped post a competitive 255-5 off 53 overs. In reply, Brickhill made a fine start through Anton De Beer (41) & Michael Baker (49) with Archie Hammond (42) providing good support but after being 120-1, the Thame bowlers applied pressure through the middle over period and with the run rate increasing due to the 6 over deficit when batting second, the Brickhill batsmen had to take more risks resulting in the loss of several wickets quickly leaving them 222-9 off 47 overs with 7 points from the game and drop to 8th in division 1.

The 2nd XI recorded their first win for nearly 2 months and moved out of the relegation zone as they beat Kimble by 7 wickets. Electing to field, Lee Morgan (1-30 off 17) & Kieron Burke (3-66) did well to restrict the top order Kimble batsmen before young spinner Hamid Miah (4-49) bowled with excellent control and spin to restrict Kimble to 174 all out. In reply, after losing a wicket in the first over, Brickhill put on 82 for the second wicket before Adam Harwood (28) was caught at cover. Barry Webb and Greg MacDonald (29) continued the partnership building with Webb eventually finishing with a vital & unbeaten 85*, seeing Brickhill home with 7 wickets to spare in the 40th over.

The 3rd XI lost the top of the table clash against Whitchurch by 30 runs. Electing to bowl, Sam Brightwell (1-20 off 10) & James Aldridge (3-39 off 10) made scoring difficult for the Whitchurch top order and were supported well by Marcus Critchley (1-12) before some late order hitting allowed Whitchurch to post 188-8 off 44 overs. In reply Andy Robson (50) & Tom Robson (40) were the only 2 players to make significant scores as Brickhill were bowled out for 158 off 43 overs.

The Beds Sunday XI remained top of division 4 with a 10 wicket win over Leighton Buzzard. Leighton Buzzard were asked to bat and Arjun Jhala (3-5 off 7) & James Wagg and Hamid Miah each taking 2 wickets made light work of the Leighton batting as they were dismissed for 52 runs. Patrick Prasad hit a quick 37* as the score was chased down in 10.1 overs without loss.

Tough Weekend for GBCCMon 11th Aug

The 1st XI were this week kept to only 7 points as Tiddington put on an impressive performance. Posting 263 on a good batting deck the away team then kept brickhill, who just about managed to hold onto the draw, to 202 - 9. Positive performances from Doug Aris who scored 68 and took 1-26 from his 6 overs at the death and Julian Blackwell took 1 wicket for just 31 from his 13 overs with the new ball.

The second XI also struggled against an unbeaten Horley side as they only managed to post 92 all when batting first and then taking just 3 wickets leading to a 7 wicket defeat.

The 3rd XI had a more positive result and managed to secure a winning draw after posting 196 - 8 against Eldesborough with Andrew Harwood (57) & Arran Aris (63). In reply they were able to take 6 wickets and restricted the opposition to 170-6 with Harry Kearns (2-20 off 10) Adam Harwood (2-24 off 10).
