WITH 25 players away on the Green's tour Dave Bayliss led a team mixed full of youth and experience.


After winning the toss and electing to field the Green made an excellent start. The young Brad Adams bowled with pace and hostility and was rewarded with early wickets. Quite brilliantly supported by the eager Ken Williams who took a stunning diving catch in the gully.

The father and son combination of Ken and Tim Williams further applied pressure, between them accounting for four Broadway batsmen. Tim Morris (116no) then began to dominate reaching his 50 in the 25th over and his 100 in the 36th. An innings that was to prove crucial. Lane, Wajzer and Middleton all tried to contain him but to no avail. Broadway finished on 192-7.

Barnards Green's reply looked good for the first 15 overs. Rich Williams (64) and Keith Middleton (23) taking the attack to the bowlers but with their demise and the subsequent procession of wickets the Green could not recover and they were eventually all out for 118.

Despite the scoreline it was a competitive game.
