Fans were treated to great game of cricket On a long awaited sunny evening as Burton Agnes played host to Middleton and North Dalton 2nd X1
Agnes were missing some champagne players who were unavailable due to Flixton commitments. So it was a youthful, fresh and all round positive side that took to the picturesque Victoria ground.
Agnes batted first on an ever challenging wicket. Wickets fell regularly with a meaning full knock from young Will Bradley (18) and good starts from Sam Wragg-Doll and Charlie Watts. The tail wagged with swashbuckling hitting at the end from Sam Moore and love island contestant Fred Langton, seeing Agnes eventually post 73 from 20 overs.
Dalton struggled in reply from the start, in what seemed to be a total that should be knocked off with some ease. Wickets tumbled throughout with excellent bowling from Will and Fred Bradley, Charlie Watts and Little Sam Wragg, who at the end of the night claimed 5 wickets. A nail biting finish saw Daltons number 11 needing 2 for victory, however he nicked it to keeper Watts off the bowling of Wragg. Dalton 72 all out.
An entertaining night for both players and supporters. Not only in cricketing terms but fashion aswell. 6’6” Irishman Damian made his debut at short notice and took the field in Richard Watts (5’5”) whites, which put quite simply did not fit.
Port moment , Will Bradley for efforts with both bat and ball.
