Senior Cricket

The Premier Men managed to clean up East Shirley last week with a great spell of bowling from Matt Farrant who got 6/50. Both Matt and Scott Inglis picked up 8 wickets for the match – This week we welcome grade leaders Sydenham to Burnside Park  for the first day of the last 2 day match of the season. It will be a must win for BWCUCC – you can read this article to explain the position of the grade last round – The Press

Matt Farrant 6_50 against East Shirley

The 2a’s are leading the competition 111.49 to Saint Alban’s 111.22, going into the last round the draw has BWCUCC vs Sydenham at Sydenham Park #1 and St. Alban’s playing Riccarton at Bradford Park.  BWCUCC has not won the second grade competition since 2009/2010 season when they were lead by Ashley Taggart. Let’s hope that a match off has left the lads rested.

Not a great day at the office for either team in the 3a Grade, not even a 5 wicket hall from Umesh in the Brawlers could help them win against Marist-Harewood and the Mariners had tough day at the office as well.

The President’s Foxes had a good win against East Shirley as Marty Conway scored 53, putting them in semi-final this weekend in the top four play off. The Dubai Diamond Traders, Ghetto Hustlers and Rolling Stones all had T20 wins – and the Strikers falling short with not enough runs or players this week.
