Toony takes 5 and Thorpey makes 50 both in vain

A sustained assault by overseas all rounder Omar Wiggins ensured Broomleys were in a good position at tea. Recovering from a slow start, Wiggins hit 14 x 6's and 4 boundary 4's in his innings of 116 His powerful hitting on a slow wicket pushed the required scoring rate to in excess of 5 per over, which would be difficult on a pitch where the ball did not come on to the bat.

Wiggins rode his luck at times with a couple of chances going begging but there is no doubt he was the difference between the sides. Dave Sharpe took an excellent catch on the boundary to help dismiss Wiggins with Ash the successful bowler. Toony nipped in for 5 wickets as the chase for late runs faltered a touch.

In reply wickets fell regularly as C'thorpe stuttered to 108-7 but Thorpey and Toony added 76 in a fine stand as the total edged towards 200 Thorpey reached a well deserved 50 but Toony was bowled by that man Wiggins with overs running out. The skipper battled almost to the end recording a career best 64 with 2 x 6 and 3 fours. Ash was last man to go with the score on 198 as Broomleys won by 27 runs. With games running out, victories are now needed to avoid relegation
