In Conclusion A poor start by our openers put our middle order batsman under pressure but the middle order stepped up to the mark and made a brilliant recovery.
Brodsworth were nearly handed the game by some below par bowling and some school boy errors in the field. 3 Dropped catches could have cost us the game.
