Brigands v Sussex Martlets

Brigands batted first on a very dry pitch against very accurate bowling. Only Mo Ali (35) and Dougie Henderson (25) got going and Brigands slumped from 100-5 to 114 all out.


A great crowd, including the Lovett-Turner family, enjoyed the sunshine, the ice cream van, and the loverly Harris & Bailey teas.


Martlet's scored 20 off the first 3 overs so were always favourites, but 2 wickets a piece for Ladenburg (straight) and Mo Alu (lively) made things interesting at 40-4.


A middle-order consolidation, some lusty blows into the freshly harvested field, took the game away from the Brigands and when Henderson Senior caught the sixth wicket only 10 more runs were needed.


Brigands 114 all out, Martlets 115-6 won by 4 wickets.
