Bare claim first win of season

BARE picked up their first win of the season with victory over Shireshead.

Shireshead decided to bat first and were rewarded with a good start from openers R Riley (15) and J Dodd (28) who put on 38 for the first wicket.

The introduction of first change bowlers brought wickets with slow bowler Lockwood bowling a good line and length picking up three wickets in a spell of 13 overs.

Cheetham at the other end also profited from some good in-swing bowling and took 2 for 19 from 8 overs.

Shireshead batsman D Riley pulled his side round with a well compiled 27 before being bowled by Bransby. Clarkson also added 18 and Wells 10, but Bare restricted Shireshead to 131 at the end of their 45 overs.

Wickets were shared around the Bare bowlers with Lockwood 3 for 31, Bransby 2 for 17, Cheetham 2 for 19 and Osmotherly 1 for 23.
