Barton Cricket Club

Sunday League under way - Match Report

The South Devon League team got their season under way today with Barton CC away to Babbacombe CC

A youthful side skippered by Jarms and ably supported by some of the Senior players was looking for a strong opening in a cordial atmosphere at Wallshill Road. Barton batted first

The Barton openers struggled to make their mark, with Jamie Peters suffering from a nasty bout of Tequila Poisoning, and didn't make the scorers work too hard on a Sunday. This however brought in Hele-o who, supported by a skippers knock of 63 form Jarms, made an impressive 105 before retiring tired. With contributions throughout the order, the Barton innings closed on 230

Barton's bowlers made the Babbacombe batsmen work extremely hard for runs and restricted them to a total of 199-6 at the close of their innings, meaning a 31 run victory for Barton

3 wins from 3 this weekend and a strong showing from the juniors is a great weekend of cricket for the club

The future is bright, the future is Barton
