Ashford Hill hadn't visited Broadhalfpenny Down for over 20 years so it was a warm welcome back to the village team from Basingstoke.
With a good crowd, a blue sky and a short boundary it was a day for entertainment.
There was a football for a pre match kickabout on World Cup Final day and the Turners had been baking all morning preparing a world class tea.
Ewan Lovett-Turner took in the Zak Crawley role, driving and pulling his way to a superb 71. Dave Henderson hit a six and late cut his way to 38, and Dougie Henderson followed up with a six that sailed over The Monument and into the Bat and Ball.
Jim Morris and Sam Sargant put on a quick 30 at the end so Brigands could declare on 196-4 off just 35 overs.
Four front line bowlers were each given 6 overs (for contractual and scorebook symmetry reasons); Ed Hands bowled fast but without luck, Mike Beardall bowled with guile for 2 wickets, Lee Gray bowled with accuracy for 2 wickets and Neil Wood bowled with variety for 3 wickets.
The best games finish with moments of magic; first Gerry Northwood's 2 for 2, and then Neil Wood's tempting slow left arm looper that induced a looping catch to Mike Beardall at first slip which stuck in his outstretched hand to seal another win for the Brigands.
Brigands 196-4 declared beat Ashford Hill 84 all out by 112 runs
