In the second of Barrow Gurney’s pre-season friendlies, Barrow ran out 64 run winners over a YMCA XI with Ali Hood, Sam Turner and Jordan Allen (whose innings included 4 6s) all making fifties before retiring. Barrow racked up 235 in their 40 overs with Roger Finnimore also chipping in with 27 including a rare cut shot for 6.
In reply YMCA found themselves up against an accurate attack with Mark Fisher (3/23) leading the way and his new ball partner Ellie Holdaway (2/27) providing good support. Hood and Turner then showed their prowess with the ball picking up a further 3 wickets between them. YMCA were finally bowled out with 1 ball to spare.
This weekend sees Blagdon visit Hobbs Lane on Saturday and Leema on Sunday as Barrow make their final preparations for the league season.
