BAGBOROUGH skipper Henry Stirzaker had a day to remember as his side gained an exciting two-wicket away victory over Morebath.

Morebath, choosing to bat first, lost an early wicket before Stephen Kelland and Carl Hooper took the total onto 57, when the former perished for 19, the first of Stirzaker’s six victims.

Wicket-keeper Hooper made 34 before he, too, fell to Stirzaker, after which Graham Turner hit 50 before being bowled by the visiting skipper, while Mock remained unbeaten as the hosts reached 197 for nine from their 40 overs.

Henry Stirzaker who claimed five of the top six batters ended with 6-48 from nine overs, while Matt Raffill claimed 3-25.

Bagborough lost both openers Jed Glanvill for 11 and Tom Eve 14 to Henry Oliver. Then Henry Stirzaker with 49 off 41 balls including eight fours and two sixes and Craig Swinburne who hit 57 from 53 balls with seven fours and three sixes joined forces to steer Bagborough towards their target.

However, three wickets tumbled and it was left to James Middleton who ended unbeaten on 10 and David Stirzaker with 12 not out to bat patiently and see Bagborough to a victory with nine balls to spare.

Miguel Tenriro and Oliver both ended with three wickets apiece.
