Stoke just get the better of a Young Pen's side to advance in the Brockman
Another Semi Final, 2nd in Two Years.
Torquay HERE WE COME!!!
Very professional victory over Ipplepen by 8 runs in the Brockman Cup rounded off by a direct hit run out by Mark Russell. A few bumps along the way, silly run outs, but posted 134 ao. Got their danger man Matt Quartley just as we was getting going, took some good catches, had a little scare from the lower order and tail, Callum Thomas a gutsy 24 not out but in the end not enough.
On Stoke performances, Sreejith Shankar the Starman taking Outstanding figures of 4 for 21 off 4, 2 wickets a piece for Jamie Clinkett and Paul Russell and a couple of catches from Mark Russell. Earlier back from his 2 month trip down under, a fine 31 by Mr Chairman himself (Mike Lang). Contributions as well from Paul Russell (22), Ollie Barnes (11) and Andrew Thornton-Clarke (10). Pen's bowled 34 Extras which in the end turned out be the difference.
