1st XI - All Still to Play For!
Tues 30th Aug

Saturday

The 1st XI away to Twyford CC and the match was abandoned due to rain with Twyford 24-4. The previous weeks appeal was successful with Great Brickhill being awarded the 25 points for victory. Brickhill now lay 2nd in the division after leaders Aston Rowant IIs managed to avoid the weather for a victory to leave Brickhill 14 points behind going into the last game against Cumnor at home next week. This is one of the most important games in the clubs history so please feel free to come up and show support.

The 2nd XI were at home to Blewbury & Wallingford CC and won by 4 wickets. Fielding first, opening bowler Arjun Jhala bowled an excellent 17 over spell taking 5-56 as Blewbury were all out for 186 inside 46 overs. In reply, Lawrence Armstrong continued his recent good form with the bat scoring an assured 92 to lay an excellent foundation to the chase, Brickhill then lost several quick wickets but Greg MacDonald hit 40 not out to see Brickhill home in 37 overs with 4 wickets to spare. The 2s remain 4th in division 3.

The 3rd XI continued on the path to promotion with a crushing 177 run victory against Lidlington CC. Batting first, Patrick Prasad hit 107, well supported by Andrew Robson (33) as Brickhill posted 246-7 off of their 44 overs. In reply seamer Kieran Burke was in fine form taking 5-8 as Lidlington were all out for 69 in 23 overs. The 3rd XI lay 2nd in the table with only one game left against league leaders Thurleigh CC next week.

The 4th XI were at home to Bletchley Town 3rd XI and lost by 155 runs. Fielding first, Anuj Sharma took 3-51 but Bletchley maintained a good scoring rate, reaching 220-8 off of 44 overs. In reply David Cooney top scored with 16 as Bletchley's bowlers proved too strong and Brickhill fell to 65 all out.

Sunday

A congratulations to the 1st XI for securing next year in Division 1 of the Beds Sunday League after Lutonion 2nd XI conceded the fixture.

The 2nd XI fell victim to the weather after making 157 against Aspley Guise. Aspley reached 10-0 before the heavens opened and no further play was possible. Although relegated, the 2nd XI fixtures have seen many positive performances throughout, especially from the under 14 & 15 youngsters which bodes very well for the future of the club!

Monday T20 - Tim Amies Memorial

The sun was out for the T20 memorial match held against Eversholt CC for Great Brickhill's president Tim Amies, who sadly passed away earlier this year. A memorial bench was presented to Tim's wife & family during the innings interval (pictured above). Eversholt CC batted first and started off in aggressive fashion but Ed Marshall helped pegged back the innings, taking 3 wickets as Eversholt reached 170 off of their 20 overs. In reply, opener Marcus Critchley made 65* and was well supported by Hayden Symmonds (60) and Graeme Carter (34) as the score was chased 7 wickets down with 3 balls to spare. A big thank you to Eversholt CC and all involved with the day.

First XI Await Result
Wed 24th Aug

Saturday

The 1st XI were away to Leighton Buzzard CC and the match result submitted was a controversial forfeit by Brickhill due to a technicality. The issue arose during a rain interval when the umpires were asked if the reduced overs resulted in a ruduced maximum overs for a bowler, the information provided was the the maximum overs remained at 17. George Humphries then bowled out his 17 overs as Leighton reached 203-9 off of their 48 overs. At this point it was discovered the the umpires had been mistaken and the actual number of overs per bowler should have been 16 overs. Due to the confusion, the game was instructed to continue and Brickhill lost 3 early wickets before Hayden Symmonds (98*) and Doug Aris (45) batted superbly to reach the target for the loss of 4 wickets. The submitted result has been appealed.

The 2nd XI were away at home to division leaders Dicot CC and were comfortably beaten by 8 wickets. Batting first, opener Lawrence Armstrong top scored with a hard fought 81, supported by an excellent lower order innings from Matt Ward with 43* to lead a recovery to finish on 183-9 off 50 overs after being 70-7. In reply Didcot demonstrated why they were top of the division with a well measured and low risk run chase, losing only 2 wickets in the process and reaching the target with 3 overs to go.

The 3rd XI were at home to North Crawley 3rd XI and won by 21 runs. Batting first, opener Patrick Prasad led the way with an unbeaten 120, supported by Luke Lathwell wit an unbeaten 23 as Brickhill declared on 183-3 after 33 overs as there was a rain in the air and a win was needed. Brickhill's bowlers then all contributed with the wickets shared as North Crawley were all out for 162.

Sunday

The 1st XI were at home to Potton CC and lost by 6 wickets. Batting first, Shiv Jhala top scored with 35, supported by Arjun Jhala (31) but with few other scores fell to 139 all out. Ed Marshall took 3 wickets in the second innings but the total was too low to defend as Potton reached it for the loss of 4 wickets.

The 2nd XI were away to Ickwell CC 2nd XI and lost by 8 wickets. Glenn Burrows top scored in the first innings with 26 as Brickhill were all out for 98. Ickwell made light work of the chase, reaching the target 2 wickets down.
