Sunday XI have a splendid day in sunny Shropshire

Sunday XI v. Bridgnorth

On Sunday 28th June Kenilworth travelled to Bridgnorth CC in Shropshire to play a 40 over friendly in glorious sunny conditions.
The home team Bridgnorth batted first but only Robert 24, Lee 24 not out and Black with 20 made any sort of a start against Kenilworth’s bowling, as experienced and ageless seamer Pete Alty with a very economic 1 for 17 off his 8 overs, youngster Charlie Stranks 2 for 42 off 8 overs, old timer Ali Peebles 1 for 31, young Jack Howard 1 for 27 all bowled well,  whilst all-rounders Danny Boneham took 1 for 18 and  Gregg Peebles 1 for 14 and  skipper Geoff Edmunds  took 1-5 as they restricted Bridgnorth to 159 for 9 from their 40 overs.
Then after what can only be described as the best cricket tea ever, openers Danny Boneham and Dave Edmunds made a solid start on very full bellies. At the fall of the first wicket, Edmunds was joined by Gregg Peebles at the crease, the pair adding 74 for the second wicket, Dave Edmunds continued his good form of the weekend with 47. At the fall of his wicket,  young Dan Horner with a solid 20 not out put on an unbroken stand of 68 with Peebles who hit a fine 77 not out (12 x 4 and 3 x 6) as Kenilworth won the game with a six by eight wickets and ten overs to spare reaching 160-2.
Kenilworth CC would like to thank their hosts Bridgnorth CC for such a fantastic day and all their efforts, especially with that tea which will remain in the memory banks of those fortunate to enjoy it for a long time! Well done Bridgnorth and their tea ladies – you did  your Club proud! This what friendly cricket is all about! Yum! Yum! Thank you for the experience and for the enjoyment of the day.
