2nd XI Broadstairs CC vs Sidcup CC Saturday 7th July 2018

This week the 2nd XI suffered their third defeat of the season at home to Sidcup. Batting second having lost the toss, they faced an uphill struggle after the visitors posted a mammoth 277. Although the outcome was in the balance for much of the innings, they eventually had to accept defeat,  falling just 17 runs short of the 277 target with 8 wickets down. Special mention to man-of-the match and skipper Andy Marshall for his 60 with supporting roles from James Bond (44), Archie Ralph-Harding (38), George Kidd (36). Highlights from the 1st innings strewn with fielding mis-haps were Callum McCormick witha run out and 3 wickets and Bradley Ellison, whose10 overs yielded just 31 runs.

The team share joint second spot with Bickley Park and Old Wilsonians and travel to Bickley Park next week in a match that both teams will be desparate to win in order to maintain their push for promotion.
