Stevenson Stars as Brixham trounce hapless Stokeinteignhead
A weakened Stoke team outclassed by a strong Brixham side
Unfortunately for Stoke they're won't be a third time lucky in the Brockman after a comprehensive Round 1 loss to Brixham.
From the very first ball onwards it was always going to be an uphill struggle for Stokeinteignhead who before the game we're struggling to get a full strength eleven. With some key players away and others busy with work commitments, Stoke could only field the best possible eleven they could but with less bowling options and quite a long batting tail they're was only going to be one outcome especially against quite a strong Brixham side.
Highlights: Brixham won the toss and batted first
Tom Stevenson taking incredible figures of 5 for 9 off his 4 overs to skittle Stoke out for 41 after contributions with the bat from Connor Ashworth (30) as well as Adam Edwards (22) and skipper Tom Blundell (21). For Stoke, Mike Lang pick of the bowlers with 2 for 14 off 4, top scorer in the Stoke Innings incredibly 15 and that was in Extras.
For now, Brixham qualify for the Quarter-Finals, draw coming up at the end of the week, whereas for Stokeinteignhead it's another 12 months before the Brockman Cup begins again.
