BB vs Sussex Martlets

Martlets - 134

BB - 135 - 2

Band of Brothers Won By 8 wickets



Congrats to the victorious Brethren who, masterfully lead by Boris Streatfeild vanquished a strong Sussex Martlets side at Arundle Castle yesterday (30 Aug 2016) and big thanks to Diane Gittings our invaluable scorer for this match and all her efforts this Season. Losing the toss BB took to the field with 9 men - the Hon Match Sec and Brother Brown ending up in Petworth at the Arundel Castle public house not cricket ground no thanks to googlemaps! FINE!!! This did not deter our fearless brigade as sublime spells from brothers Finn and Fredd Hulbert relentlessly probing the 'corridor ofuncertainty', ably supported by the gun speed of Harry Meredith and spin wizardry of Ben 'doosra' Regan and not forgetting some deft glove work (3 catches) from Pedro White and' a juicy 'wonder catch' at gully from Norwood Hill, had the Martlets reeling at 134 all out just after lunch! The second innings loomed - a potentially tricky total to get but cometh the hour cometh the men, as Brothers Matt Shales and Man of the Match, Fred Hulbert both notched up classy half centuries valiantly assisted by Brothers Page and Stubbs as BB cruised to an easy win, both teams in the Black Rabbit on the river by 5pm. Happy Days and a great way to end the Season! Bravo!!
