BB V Standard Athletic Club, Paris

BB - 285-8 dec. from 41.3 overs

SAC - 188 -8 from 43 overs 

Match Drawn

This was an excellent cricket match, hosted at Torry Hill in glorious sunshine.  The Brethren welcomed Standard Athletic Club, Paris, who featured many familiar faces.

The Bruce brothers were the stand-out performers with the bat: Tom, opening the batting, making 73 before falling LBW to their most successful bowler; and Will, striking from number four, scoring a fine 79.  Cameos from Brothers Page and Regan, and Rumph (guest) helped the Brethren to a very competitive 285-8 dec. from just 41.3 overs.

In reply, the tourists made a strong start, passing 100 with no loss of wicket.  However, with both openers dismissed, Brother Berger ripped through the Parisian middle order, finishing with exceptional figures of 6-29.  The Brethren just couldn’t take the final two wickets, and thus recorded a winning draw, with Standard Athletic recording almost 100 fewer runs than the BB managed in a very similar number of overs.

As ever, it was an honour and a pleasure to host our friends from Paris.  It is great to see their wonderful club in such good health, and we are already looking forward to next year’s fixture.

The Match Manager – unavailable through injury – thanks all the players, scorers, groundsmen, caterers and spectators who made the match a success, with a special note of appreciation for Brother Page for captaining the side on the day.
