Cricket: Bourton and Frankton batsmen on form in Sunday success over Long Itchington


Bourton and Frankton Cricket Club’s batsmen were in the runs on Sunday as they recorded a 67 run success over Long Itchington.

With the match reversed back to The Field, the home side batted first and set a competitive total for the visitors to chase, making 235 for 5 off their 40 overs.

There were useful contributions and partnerships throughout with Dale Coles leading the way with 80, putting on a second wicket stand of 99 with George Smith (49), ahead of Mark Whitehead making 43 not out who along with Jake Quinney (23 not out) added an unbeaten 64 for the sixth wicket. For Long Itchington, Andy Hart returned figures of 2 for 18.

In reply, Matt Southall and Greg Campbell led the Long Itchington batting with 38 and 35 respectively, however Bourton kept their progress in check with some tight bowling and by taking wickets at regular intervals. Pat McManus was economical as ever with 1 for 15, along with Quinney taking 2 for 35 off an eight over spell, Mick Waller (3 for 40), Danny McManus (2 for 2) and Nigel Kidd (1 for 13) keeping the visitors at a distance, despite Long Itchington’s Freddie Hart making an entertaining late cameo with 19 off 11 balls.
