Second XI.  

The bank holiday weekend saw Barnards Green second eleven visit Colwall CC on the Saturday and entertain Droitwich CC on the Monday.
On a damp Saturday the side travelled the short distance to Colwall where a youthful side did what they do best. The Green bowled first and squeezed Colwall dry on a wet outfield bowling them out for just 154 runs. Classy off-spinner Lewis Hooper (15-2-58-4) was the pick of the bowlers. The excellent fielding performance from Ryan Scullion, Jack Cullity and Louis Loader was most impressive also.
In response to this skipper Judd Doughty grafted hard for 73* and Tom Clack worked hard for 42* to seal a well earned victory. Tim Clarke chipped in with a bright and breezy 27 from number 3 too.
On the Monday an even younger Green side restricted a depleted Droitwich side to just 188 runs on a wicket and outfield worth 260 runs at least. The Scullion-trio was most impressive (a combined analysis of 26-4-99-6), especially in partnership with an inspired Ashlea Brewer whose keeping was magnificent, especially when hounding the batsmen up to the stumps.
In reply the innings stuttered and stalled until the lower-middle-order of Brewer 28, Dave White 27, Clack 24 and James Scullion 41*secured another 20 point victory.
Well done lads a 40 point bank holiday weekend when other teams struggled to maked double figures over the two games!
