  BGCC 2nd XI vs Studley
Barnards Green 2nd’s entertained Studley on a pleasant afternoon and put them in to bat first on a wicket that saw over 600 runs the previous day. Kingsley Warren got the Green off to a good start, removing opener Eversham (5) and Landell for a duck, thanks to a well taken catch by Adam Price. Jamie Plant, Anshuman and Jamie Longmore all bowled reasonably well and were unlucky not to get a wicket between them. Dave Price bowled a good line and was rewarded with 4 wickets, including a great catch on the boundary from the safe hands of J. Longmore. Price eventually bowled danger man J. Nazir for 135 but the damage had already been done. Seeing his side struggling against some leg side slogging, captain Marek Wajzer heroically brought himself on to bowl and soon after Studley were all out, the skipper taking 4 wickets, two of which were superb catches from wicketkeeper Robin Longmore. Studley were all out for 236 off 41.3 overs.
Matt Higgs (12) and Justin McMillan (19) did well to see off the quick bowling of O. Nazir, whilst keeping the scoreboard ticking from the other end. The introduction of A. Bray (5-50) somehow caused the Green trouble and the wickets started to fall. Harry Pleass was stumped for 10, whilst Anshuman and Adam Price failed to trouble the scorer. R. Longmore (30) hit a succession of boundaries before chasing a wide and giving an easy catch. Unfortunately overseas player Wajzer mistranslated “No no no” as meaning “Yes” and was run out. J. Longmore and J. Plant provided some entertainment before Plant once again was caught chasing a wide for 12. Longmore was looking very comfortable and scored 30 not out before last man Warren was stumped first ball, giving Studley a 89 run victory.
