Broadstone 220 – 6         OSCC   162  all out        Lost by 58 runs

OSCC gave several of the younger bowlers a chance on a ground with a very short boundary. This proved to be their downfall as the target grew. Veteran Neil Bigmore made 30 on his 72 birthday then.

Richie Barker and Simon Warrington looked to be going well with an 8th wicket partnership of 80 from 45 balls however the luck ran out when Man of the Match Barker fell for a great 65 which included 12 fours and 2 sixes.
