Bitton Bat Well To Beat Barrow Firsts

Barrow Gurney batted first in this encounter with league-leaders Bitton. New look opening partnership Bernie Forge, on debut (23),  and Ali Hood (13) put on 34 before the top six all contributed double figure scores in a solid batting performance but without any of them going on to a high score. Rob Figueiredo struck  24 not out down the order to take Barrow to a total of 194-9.

Bitton found this insufficient challenge as they passed the total for the loss of only 3 wickets with nearly 9 overs to spare,  despite 2-25 from James Riley and 1-29 for Mick Hardy who came out of “retirement” to help a team afflicted by absences, he also made a useful 18 with the bat.
