Broadway and Horton lost to Doctors by 5 runs


  There is something endearing about the Broadway fixture, perhaps because an aroma of cooking beefburgers wafts gently around the Pavilion, and also the opposition rate highly as a friendly bunch of folks, led by John Pike.

  The Docs’ youth policy produced 5 likely lads – 3 Minchins, Will Bere and Josh Vennner who managed 67 runs between them; added to skipper Andrew Paisley’s 14, Chris Cullum’s 32*, and Matt Bere’s cultured 11 a grand total of 140 was run up. The evening was sunny, the outfield bone-dry and a trifle bobbly. Rob Adcock’s ditch remains at the far end.

  Effective bowling by Sedge (3-30-4) and the Hope brothers (1-26-4) and (2-20-3) pinned back the home side for whom only D Cook got a possible with John Pike, their danger-man, clean bowled by an up-and-coming Sedge for a duck. To smite a 6 off the last ball in the gloaming to win the match was just beyond their 11th man, and so the Docs carried the day!
