Great Bank Holiday!
Tuesday 26th May

Saturday

The first XI were away to Banbury IIs. Bowling first, Brickhill's openers Jhala & Humphries bowled with good control to restrict scoring before spin duo Ahad Khan (3-32) & Iqbal John (4-60) helped bowl Banbury out for 171 off 48 overs.

A young Brickhill side containing 5 under 18s were put into bat first with Richard Winchester (46) continuing his good start to the season.

In reply, Kingston were not overly interested in chasing the runs and wickets were difficult to come by on a good batting pitch but spinner Hamid Miah (3-52) & James Clark (4-35) stuck to their task well to leave Kingston on 157-8 off 49 overs, Brickhill taking 19 points and remaining top of division 4.

Brickstock 2015!

Sunday 24th May saw the club host the 3rd annual Brickstock festival.

Many thanks to all that attended the event and for all those who volunteered in the organising, set-up and helping out on the day, it couldn't have happened without you!
