Bradford on Avon Cricket Club First Eleven v Swindon 3 on Sat 18 May 2019 at 13:00
Bradford on Avon Cricket Club Won by 9 wickets

Match report The first win of the season for the first team. Having won the toss, Swindon were asked to bat. A good performance all round with Kit Chapman taking 4 wickets on his return to the team and Dean Bird and Rufus Lakin rediscovering some of the form from last season. In the field the bowlers were well supported by some good fielding with Rufus yet again showing how good he is at gully and Chris Thompson proving his worth behind the stumps . Finally a big shout out to Joe Milton who fielded superbly all day and capped it off with a nice low catch at cover. I should also mention Dean Bird, he was serenaded from the boundary by his No1 fan (a simple man who was on a day trip from Bristol) during his spell "come on Birdy" he called and he continued to shout that even after he had bowled his overs. Btw Dean skittled a run out from square leg hitting the stumps of a 19 stone player who tried to run a quick single only to be turned back when he was half way down! Well done Birdy!

In response Chris and Matt punished any wayward bowling and put on an opening stand of 132. Chris, who had been dropped at mid on earlier in his innings, went on to score 75 including 2 sixes. Matt saw the innings through with 59* and PV ended with 15*.

Some much needed points and this has helped restore some confidence in the team. Onwards to H&SV next week!
