1's season heats up with win over Broadstone

On the hottest day of the season so far Broadstone won the toss and decided to bat first. Kirk and Allam were soon into their stride with Broadstone’s batsmen playing and missing with gay abandon. Kirk (3-40) took all of the first 3 wickets to fall but Alam (0-21) also playing his part in an excellent partnership that reduced Broadstone to 39-3. The young Broadstone middle order did their best to hang around but the introduction of Wormington (4-21), bowling superbly, and a run out, had Broadstone up against it at 95-8. Wilson (2-19) soon wrapped up the tail and Broadstone were all out for 111.


Van Wyk (8) was out quickly to a good one from Rowe with the score on 11 and new opener Rushton (9) was joined by Alam (28). These two batsman then ticked along quite nicely and it was something of a surprise when Rushton was out lbw with the score on 42. Quinn (31 no) then joined his old mate Alam and a very enjoyable 50 partnership took the score up to 96 before Alam was bowled by the impressive Ed Jack. Kear (2) came and went quickly leaving Armstrong to help Quinn get Poole over the line. The match ended with a powerful 6 from Quinn to leave Poole winners by 6 wickets.
