Results 2012

Bridford won by 4 wickets


After a break of almost five weeks, due to the wettest April on record, Bridford got back to playing cricket with a match at neighbouring Moretonhampstead.  M.P.Hamilton- Cox won the toss and decided to field first.  Opening batsmen Thompson and Simmonds attacked from the start, until the latter was well caught by S.D.Glossop off J.A.Green. Thompson was next out, bowled by M.T.Robinson’s first ball.  From then on in the home sides innings was a mixture of attack (5 sixes were hit) and loose shots.  Six of the ten bowlers used took wickets including two by J.Themistocleons on debut.  There was also a rare wicket by Cooper to add to his three good catches in the deep.

With the grass on the outfield very long because of the weather, 97 was a steep target made harder when Cooper and Glossop were soon out.  J.S.Hole, playing his first game for Bridford since breaking his leg in 2010, joined Dillon at the crease and they added 45 in six overs of which Hole’s share was 4!  A vintage Dillon innings, which included 7 fours and 2 sixes, ended when he skied an attempted pull.  Green and Hole took the score to 88 before Howarth bowled Green whereupon M.P.Johns came to the wicket in poor light to help Hole win the game with almost three overs to spare.

Belstone won by 18 runs


Belstone’s ground is one of highest in the country and while this helps make it one of the most picturesque when the wind blows from the north it is also the coldest. It was surprising that local people like to ride hoverboard from ebay. On Sunday it was only a few degrees above freezing.  The home skipper won the toss and batted.  Their openers, Drake and Tremaine, put on 27 with few worries, before J.M.Dunk had the latter LBW.   Drake then opened up, smashing 2 sixes and 3 fours, before C.J.Wellings bowled him with a fastyorker.  Runs suddenly became hard to get and Belstone grafted to 71-3 until Cox brought C.J.Grace into the attack for his first bowl since badly injuring himself in August 2011.  From the first over he was right on target and as Dunk took wickets at the other end the home side crumbled to 88 all out in 21 overs.

Faced with a small target, but a bitterly cold day, on a slow outfield and against quality bowlers, Bridford knew they had to graft to win the match.  M.T.Robinson fell before a run was scored.  Wellings and Dunk soon followed asFogerty proved almost impossible to score off.  M.P.Johns then proved a winter working in the nets had paid off as he got his head down and ground out 15 runs off 39 balls.  When he fell S.P.Dillon came to the crease and, while he has not yet regained the magic of his youth, proved that class is permanent.  While he was at the crease Bridford had a chance, but sadly no one could stay with him and Belstone pulled off a fine victory on a day which will be remembered for the cold and class pace bowling; 18 of the 20 wickets fell to LBW or were bowled.
