Victory against Bury – the tail that wagged!

A great win today for the Saturday side.  After being put in to bat we had struggled to 78 for 7, but runs from Oakers (22) Durkin (37) and Balls (61 not out) lifted the total to an improbable 208-9.

Joey Oakley made her first tea which was enjoyed by all.  Great egg sandwiches Joey!

Economical bowling from Durkin and Oakley put Bury on the backfoot and after 20 over were already needing more than 7 an over.  Durkin (2 wickets) was replaced by Smith bowling with pace and accuracy.  Wickets tumbled, skipper Dave Brooker and Ben Mason all came to the party, bowling well and taking wickets.  Durkin came back on to polish off the tale, and a victory by 52 runs.
