Welcome to this week’s Bramhall CC news.
The 1st XI made the long trip to the usually dry Wirral to take on Neston, and were faced with persistent drizzle which continued past the scheduled 12.30pm start time. In fact, it was gone 2.30pm when the rain abated and visiting skipper Nick Cantello won the toss and decided that the Beavers would bat first in a shortened 74 over game.
Bramhall were positive from the start, and in-form opener Mat Begbie let the way with confident strokes all around the wicket. He was well supported by Vishal Tripathi (36) in a partnership of 66, and Matthew Jamieson (41) in a stand of 81. After passing fifty with a pulled six, Begbie continued on to 88 in the 37th and final over when he was caught at long on to end a useful stand of 41 with Joe Kershaw. Bramhall finished on 207-6, leaving their hosts requiring a run a ball to win.
Neston’s innings started with a bang in the 2nd over, with 3 boundaries, but was immediately pegged back when a poor call led to the run out of Chris Hackett by the busy Begbie. Number 3 Richard Wilkinson looked in good touch and reached 36, before he too was run out at a time when the bat was starting to dominate the ball at 74-2. Simon Wilkinson and Tripathi’s tight spin bowling, allied with eager fielding then applied the pressure onto the Neston top order and the wickets started to fall. Possibly knowing that a draw would not help their current lowly league position, the Shrimpers’ batsmen continued to try and stay with the rising runs required rate – but too many false shots began to make full points a distinct possibility for Bramhall. 8 wickets down and with less than 130 on the board with 5 overs remaining, Neston called off the chase. Seamer Ashley West was brought back to bowl, and he picked up the 9th wicket with his first ball. Despite this, Neston’s 10 and 11 held firm until the last over.
With 4 runs required to gain another batting point, and the field clustered around the bat, Neston’s number 10 was tempted to slash at West and could only nick hard to Wilkinson who took a reaction catch above his head, giving Bramhall victory with 5 balls to spare.
Bramhall thus end the first half of their return season in the Premier Division in 8th position, their 140 points meaning they are well placed to aim for a top half finish by September. Opener Mat Begbie is the league’s leading scorer with 545 runs in just 8 innings.
An understrength 2nd team lost top spot to Stockport in a poor batting display at home to Tattenhall. Losing the toss, Bramhall subsided from 20 for 0 to 60 for 6 due to poor shots. It was left to youngsters Raughrie Patel (29), Lewis Clarke (23) combined with Sam Baker’s resistance to set some kind of a target at 118 all out. Despite taking a wicket second over, Tattenhall got home comfortably just 2 wickets down.
A young 3rds side headed over to Middlewich against and did well to hold the home side to 180 for 5 aided by tight bowling from Sam Baker, captain Tom Drury, George Willoughby and 2 late wickets for Daniel Woodside. George and Daniel both hit 30s but Bramhall ended up batting out the last 5 overs for a draw with Seb Lingwood (16) and Sam Baker holding on.
For the 4th XI against Cheadle Hulme, it was a case of batsmen establishing themselves but no going on with David Tittensor and Preyesh Patel scoring 30s in a total of 120. Cheadle Hulme knocked them off easily, 3 wickets down.
With some schools finishing for the summer next Friday and people returning from University, we are looking to strengthen the teams this weekend.
The Over 40s set Bollington 120 with David Tittensor top scoring on 30. After a fast start, Bollington were checked back by Stuart Stoneman before they got the winning runs with 3 balls to go.
On Wednesday evening, the Over 40s host Offerton
The 1st XI begin half 2 of the 2014 season with a home fixture to Alderley Edge this Saturday, with the 2nd XI at Brooklands.
On Sunday, the 3rds host Didsbury and the 4th XI travel to Bredbury.
Don’t forget senior training this Thursday evening, and we hope to see you at Church Lane over the weekend – be it playing or spectating
Welcome to this week’s Church Lane round up.
The 1st XI picked up 6 points in a drawn game at home to Toft on Saturday. The visitors elected to bat first, and notched up 230-8 from their 55 overs, with Simon Wilkinson returning a tidy 5-69.In response, Bramhall reached 60 for no wicket, and 90-1 before Mat Begbie’s dismissal for 67 signalled a regular fall of wickets – leading to the run chase being called off. The inning finished at 175-7.
The 2nd XI maintained their fine form in a tight win at Timperley. On a flat track, Bramhall set 243 for 8 with Tim Wood carrying his bat for an excellent 109 not out, supported by Andy Reynolds 39. In reply Lewis Clarke bowled a mature spell with 6 for 66 in 17 overs supported by Chris Heppell and Luke Littlewood. The final wicket being taken with one over left. This moves the 2nds 11 points clear of Stockport and 68 points clear of 3rd place.
The 3rds picked up their 1st league win of the season versus Urmston. Bramhall scored a below par 139 all out (Adam Siddall 39, Phil Duffy 36 not out). But a standout bowling performance in Harry Yarwoods first league game of the season did the damage with 5 for 16 off 12 overs. This also secured Harry Senior Player of the Weekend and Raughrie Patel finished off the Urmston lower order with 3 for 25 and Urnston 109 all out.
Under 15s Results from Steve Foster
On Sunday we travelled over to New Brighton for our Cheshire league match with only 10 players, which included U12’s Lewis Welch. We encountered probably our first really hard wicket of the season and a fast outfield, plus a slightly oddly shaped boundary, which appeared to go round a corner towards the Irish Sea! We scored quickly, but lost regular wickets throughout. Ollie Finch top scored with an assured 42 retired not out, and Jarrad Gallagher, playing his first game of the season for us after recovering from a broken leg, made an unbeaten 20 at the end. Our total of 126, off less than 20 overs, was definitely light, but gave us something to bowl at. Dan Woodside got us off to a great start, bowling his 5 overs straight through, taking 3 wickets for just 9 runs. Declan Scammell also pitched in with 2 wickets, but New Brighton started attacking hard and reached their target in the 23rd over for the loss of 6 wickets. Although not enjoyable to lose, it was pleasing to get a team to travel about as far as we can go in this league, particularly as on the same day Cheadle conceded their game at Chester.
We were due to play Chester Boughton Hall away this Sunday, but we now have a cup semi-final at home (all parents breathed sigh of relief at this!) This is because on Monday evening we travelled over to Toft in the quarter-finals of the Cheshire Cup. We won the toss and batted first, on what proved to be a slightly tricky track to score on. Dan Woodside carried his bat through the innings to finish on 49 not out, and was supported by George Willoughby and at the end by Ellie Mason. Our total of 109 off 20 overs was at the lower end of our target, and we knew we would need to remove Toft’s 2 openers, their main danger-men. Toft started well, taking quick singles and hitting over the top, but one opener was dismissed by a smart catch by Dan off George, and then their other opener decided to dance down the wicket to Dan and had his wickets smashed. Toft’s run rate slowed and we steadily accumulated wickets – Dan again taking 3, and they eventually finished over 20 runs short. Next up we will play Alderley Edge at home in the semi-final on Sunday morning, in what promises to be a very tough match.
This Thursday evening sees the 1st XI play the last of their group games in the T20 tournament at home to Timperley. All support welcome for the 6pm start, and other senior players might want to bring trainers in case senior nets moves into the hard nets.
On Saturday, the 1st XI make the long trek to Neston, and the 2nd XI host Tattenhall.
Sunday sees the 3rds travel to Middlewich, and the 4th XI host Cheadle Hulme.
The Under 15s have 3 HPL matches in the next week, all away, at Pott Shrigley (Wednesday), Cheadle Hulme Ladybridge (Thursday) and Disley (Monday)
Another Kitchen Appliance Request(!)
The club is keen to get a replacement small fridge-freezer for the kitchen area to fit under the work surface. If you have one you are planning to get rid of, or know of a cheap (or free) one via another source, please get in touch.
We look forward to seeing you at the club in the next few days.
The ECB is currently running a national survey to allow all players across the country to have their say. This designed so that all players at all levels have their thoughts considered, particularly as the ECB is trying to arrest a decline in the number of people playing club cricket.
Please have your say at: www.ecb.co.uk/survey
Replacement Overn Sought
The club is making a final appeal to members who might be aware of a replacement (free or cheap) that the club might be able to acquire for the kitchen, as the current model has ceased working.
Please respond to this email, or a member of the Committee, over the next 24 hours if you can assist – otherwise the club will go ahead and purchase one.
Some of you will recall the ECB recreational cricketer player survey conducted last year.
This survey is being conducted every year, and is our chance to let the authorities know what we think about modern recreational cricket, and how it might develop in the coming years. The more responses we get from the north west, the better for the shape of cricket in this area. The ECB wants to know not just about keen 1st XI players, but also about 2nd and 3rd XI cricketers, ex-cricketers, disabled cricketers, junior cricketers, umpires and so on. The information we got last year was useful, and threw up some information which showed regional variations, some surprises and confirmed some things we all know and moan about. Armed with the latest views of cricketers, some things might start to change in the coming year!
So, please find 10 mins to fill this in. The survey can be found on the front page of the ECB’s website here.
Welcome to this week’s Bramhall CC newsletter, and a little added detail regarding the progress of some of our teams and players up to this point in the season:
A second consecutive win in the league was gained last Saturday at bottom club Oxton. Dominating from start to finish Oxton were all out for 169. Rupes Kitzinger contained for 1 for 60 off 18 overs, Simon Wilkinson a quality 4 for 47 in 23 overs and Vishal Tripathi finishing them off with 3 for 29 in 9 overs. It was a wicket which required graft and after losing an early wicket, Mat Begbie and Vishal worked hard to 140 before the latter secured the win in 33 overs with a rush of attacking shots. Mat finishing on 81 not out and Vishal 83 not out.
With a record or 3 wins, 3 losses and 3 abandonments Bramhall move up to 8th in what is proving a tight division. Another win this Saturday at home versus Toft could move us into the top half. Mat Begbie’s excellent form with 390 league runs in 6 innings at an average of 78 and including one ton and three 50s makes him the leading run scorer in the County League.
The last 4 league and cup games has seen improved performances from the 1sts. The Oxton league win was proceeded by a win at Marple with Rupes Kitzinger’s 5 wkts and Mat Begbie’s 54 the highlights of a good team performance. In the cups,Bramhall lost by 2 runs in a 225 run chase at Toft where Matt Hughes hit his first 100 of the season and Vishal Tripathi showed his allround qualities with 6 for 50 and 48. In last week’s T20 v Alderley Edge, Bramhall defended a score of 95 bowlingAlderley out for just 75. Matt Hughes with 4 for 7, Vishal 4 for 20 and Adam Siddall 2 for 4 cutting through the opposition. Bramhall will need to win their final group game at home to Timperley, Thursday June 26th so come and support the team
Chris Heppell led the 2nds to another comfortable win in the end v Oxton at Church Lane on Saturday. With the Oxton openers getting on top of Bramhall’s medium pacers, it was the spin combination of Tom Drury and Lewis Clarke who brought the game back to Bramhall, Tom finishing with fine figures of 7 for 50 off 18 overs in an Oxton score of 149. All Bramhall’s top 5 contributed in a 7 wickets win with opener Ed Daber enjoying a return to old form with 59 not out.
The 2nds are leading Division 1 by 5 points from Stockport and are 35 pts ahead of 3rd spot. With 5 wins in their 6 games completed, Hepps and his squad are on track to win the division and return to the Premiership, starting at Timperley this Saturday.
On Sunday, Bramhall posted a challenging 220 for 9 target in 45 overs at home to Cheadle with the returning Tom Duffy and Tim Wood both hitting good 70s. However, the good Cheadle juniors secured victory comfortably with 2 of them getting 80 not outs, 2 wkts down. After a tied game last week, the 3rds are placed 8th in the Premier Division, just one point above relegation and with no easy games, it will be a tough division to compete in this summer. Last week saw Ellie Mason achieve her first senior club fifty with 53 not out. The 3rd XI host Urmston this Sunday.
With a depleted 10 man team including some late call ups (thanks all of you), Bramhall secured a hard fought tie at Trafford Metrovicks.. In a score of 133 for 6, Dan Bridgeman picked up another 50 supported by Cameron Yarwood’s 30. In reply, Laurence Houlden opened with a devestating 5 wicket spell before pulling the proverbial Over 40s’ hamstring… The 4ths are well placed in the top 4 with a game in hand and have won 3, tied 1, lost 1 of their 5 games completed. The 4ths are atStockport Trinity this Sunday.
Losing out to Poynton last week, the over 40s stand at won 2, lost 3 and are having their normal fun and games along the way. If any new players (dads out there) fancy joining in, you would be very welcome. Just contact Ian Milligan on 07946 110953
With the ability to train on grass in recent weeks affected by poor weather and midweek matches, this Thursday is an opportunity to have a much needed grass training night. A reminder that this is open to ALL players playing across the senior 5 teams and we could do with some batting, bowling and FIELDING work. So come along as soon as you can across a session which runs 5.30 – 8pm. Followed by the England v Uruguay game on the Big Screen.
Under 11s Update, by Laurence Houlden
The U11s Cheshire County League team have started in fine form this summer; won 5 so far and lost only 1 away at Marple; we are sitting top of the league and with 3 games to go expect to be in the semi final zonal competition in early July. Our recently appointed Cheshire A team member Matt Madeira deserves special credit, having talent is one thing but the hard work and dedication to get to training and nets in all parts of the County over the Winter has paid off – well done Matt, (and Jo for driving!)
There is a solid feel about the squad now – Reece Linney, Max Haughton, Madeira all consistently weighing in with runs – the bowling is still a fearsome prospect for any opposition – Houlden, Greenwood, Rowson and the ever improving Fowler well supported by Linney, Shah and Cusworth. Adam Ashton and Josh Coulthard keep wicket smartly – so it is a true team this year in all respects.
We have progressed din the SJMCL under U11 and U12 cups – the looming prospect of semi final ties v Alderley Edge hold no fear for us these days – bring them on !
Under 13s update, by Daniel Bridgeman
The Under 13s have been playing some excellent cricket with some great batting from Tom Mason, James and Harry Oliver, Archie Tittle and I would like to praise Arron Linney who has quietly gone about his batting running singlesand placing the ball into gaps which is just what we have been trying to get the boys to do over the winter. The boys have bowled and fielded well since getting it all wrong against Prestbury but special mentions must go to JohnBriggs, Lewis Welch and Tom Curtis who have regularly bowled tight overs and picked up wickets each week. In his first year as a keeper Joe Shenton has improved week on week and never lets the bowlers down with excellentglove work. We have qualified in the 2nd level of the Cheshire County league and have started well by beating Oulton Park soundly in our first game. This Thursday we have a quarter final against the reigning national championsAlderley Edge and if we all turn up to play you never know what we can do.
Well done boys keep working hard at your game.
The Under 9s have swelled in numbers from a threadbare squad to 22 and this week we have two teams playing at home and then away to Woodford on Monday 23rd June. We have some young boys who have real potential in this group and I look forward to helping them move through to hard ball cricket.
Under 15s update, by Steve Foster
The U15s have had a patchy season so far, in part due to the weather, which has led to a number of postponements. In the Cheshire League we won 1, lost 2, tied 1 and had 1 cancellation. We should have done better, but played 3 of our matches with just 10 players, and had a number of county call-ups. However, it has enabled all of the squad to get match time and there have been some good performances with bat and ball. In the second stage, we lost our first game against Macclesfield, again with just 10 players, with our batters not able to build an innings. This weekend we have the lengthy trip to New Brighton, and hopefully we will get back on track. In the HPL we have only played 3 matches, winning 1 and losing 2. We have used the HPL matches to move batters and bowlers around, and they have all been played in good spirit and enjoyed by all. We are, however, doing well in the Cheshire U15 Cup. We have so far beaten Cheadle Hulme, Heaton Mersey and Stockport, and are away to Toft in the quarter-finals next Monday. A victory will give us a home semi-final match.
Under 18s update, by Phil Duffy
The U18’s have not lost a match
Not one batsman
No wides or no balls have been bowled by any bowler – and more astonishingly not one bowler has a had a run scored off them
No catches have been dropped and no stumpings have been missed and to the credit of everyone there have been no misfields
But having said that The U18’s haven’t played a game!!!
Recent Hosted Cheshire Match
We had very positive feedback from all the county officials and players involved in the one day game held at Church Lane a few weeks ago. On another tough day of weather, Bramhall did itself proud delivering high quality both on and off the ground. This could not have been achieved without the ‘whole’ club working together and the Club Committee is very grateful to the 70+ people who helped on the day, including our fantastic army of children, grounds helpers and Mums in the kitchen. Cheshire played their quarter final match last Sunday and have made it through to the semis after successfully chasing 303.
Junior County Players
A number of our juniors are combining their club cricket with representing the county sides. Matt Hughes recently played for Lancashire 2nd XI, Ellie Mason and new recruit Charlie Williams have both been playing for Cheshire ladies, Chris Sanders for Lancs U15s, Lewis Clarke and Daniel Woodside for Cheshire U15s and Tom Mason for the Cheshire U13s Development Squad. Special congratulations to Matt Madiera who has secured a spot in the U11s Cheshire squad.
News of Bramhall’s 1st teamer Luke Smith who joined Surrey Premier League side Sutton at the start of this season, having moved to London. Luke is opening the batting and has started well with three 50s so far and a top score of 80. He was here for the Cheshire game and we wish him well for the rest of the season.
Next Monday sees the return of 14 year old Prithvi Shaw for 10 days in Bramhall before he plays two months cricket for Cleethorpes 1st XI in the high quality Yorkshire League. Since we last saw him 2 years ago, Prithvi has continued his progress and is now on the radar of the Indian National Academy. Last November, he scored 546 in a school game which is the 3rd highest score anywhere in organised cricket and the highest for 113 years! Prithvi is looking forward to meeting up with some Bramhall friends he made and will hopefully fit in a couple of games with us while staying with the Patel family.
World Cup Football on the BCC Big Screen
England’s crucial game against Uruguay this Thursday will be showing on the HD Big Screen in the clubhouse, with kick off at 8pm. Drinks and snacks will be available at the bar, and it will be a great way to catch the action – whether you’ve been at senior training beforehand, or are just along for the football.
Replacement Oven sought
After suffering a problem with the door which is beyond repair, we are keen to hear from any member who may know of a second hand oven that is looking for a new home in the Church Lane kitchen. We’ll need to confirm it fits, but please email back to this address, or Ian Milligan, if you think you might be able to help.
Congratulations to Over 40s and Junior coach Stuart Stoneman who completed 2 miles in the Great North Swim last Sunday alongside the Club Chairman’s daughter Grace Milligan who replaced her dad Ian at the last minute (unfortunately injured via a cricket injury). Stuart did the 2 miles in 1 hr 31 mins and Grace 1 mile in 55 mins. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152469441488695&set=a.10150272610033695.347144.799903694&type=1&relevant_count=1

We look forward to seeing you at the clubhouse over the coming week.
Welcome to this week’s update from Church Lane.
Saturday was a day for good weather and great results for the 1st and 2nd XIs.
The Firsts overcame Marple in Saturday’s Vivio Cheshire County Cricket League Premier Division Stockport derby at a green Bowden Lane. After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, Bramhall made a slow but steady start to post 42 for the first wicket. The solid start continued, aided by Australian Mat Begbie’s continued batting form with 56, and Vishal Tripathi’s patient 34. However, a turning pitch was aiding the aggressive offspin of James Ormond and his wickets kept theBramhall middle order in check as they collapsed from 137-3 to 150-7 before an intelligent knock of 26* from keeper Joe Kershaw took the Beavers to 182-8 from their 55 overs, Ormond finishing with 6-39.
The second half started brightly for Marple, despite the slow wicket, as Mark Makin took the attack to Bramhall with a quickfire 37. However, his dismissal to Simon Wilkinson left the hosts at 56-3 and under serious pressure from the nagging Rupert Kitzinger at the other end. Wickets continued to tumble, and despite a 9th wicket stand of 27, Bramhall sealed the deal with the score on 115 to win by 67 runs after 33 overs. Kitzinger’s 5-49 was the mainstay of a great team performance and the Beavers’ first win since the opening day of the season sees them climb to 8th after seven games played.
The Seconds came out top of a low scoring affair at home to Bredbury. After winning the toss, skipper Chris Heppell put the visitors in and the Beavers made an instant impact and never let St. Marks settle. The innings ended in the 31st over with just 54 runs on the board, and Heppell picking up 5-20.
It wasn’t quite the perfect run-chase, but Ben Harris’ lively 35* saw the Beavers home with the loss of 4 wickets in the 15th over.
The 1sts just missed out on a Cheshire Cup win away at Toft on Sunday. Toft decided to bat on a ‘road’ and Bramhall made the early breakthrough with the wicket of their Aussie Hancock, fresh from a ton the day before. From 97 for 1 after 19 overs, Bramhall took regular wickets with Vishal Tripathi picking up 6 for 50 off 9 overs. Dan Woodside and Raughrie Patel bowled well on their 1st team debuts and Toft closed on 224 for 9 after 45 overs. In reply Mat Begbie and Matt Hughes set a strong platform before Beggers went for 35. On top of the 7 an over required, Hughes and Vishal played smart cricket before Vishal went for 48. A few wickets disappeared before Hughesy brought up his 100 and with 2 needed off the last ball, he was caught and bowled. A great game of cricket with Bramhall finishing on 222 for 7. Very disappointing to lose but a good effort with a couple of youngsters and ‘older’ members brought in to bolster the side.The 3rds had a hard day in the field at home to Marple with the opposition declaring on 240 for 3 in 42 overs with Declan Scammell picking up all 3 wickets. In reply, Bramhall held on for a hard thought draw with the last pair of Declan and Peter Evans playing out the last 9 overs. Earlier Paul Addy top scored with 36. The 4ths continued their winning run fielding a dads army team with many youngsters on exams. Bowling Bowdon Vale out for 125 with wickets spread across Houlden snr, Yarwood snr, Patel jnr and Peter Lawson making his season debut. Nick Siddall and Steve Driscoll had a good opening stand of 60 and Bramhall secured the win with 6 wickets in hand.
Under 15s results – On Sunday we went to Cheadle with an under strength team. We bowled well taking early wickets and restricted Cheadle to 124 off 25 overs, Ellie Mason taking 3 for 15. Our openers got us off to a quick start, with Ollie scoring 31, but the rest of the team were unable to stay in and we went from 62-2 to 84 all out. Big thank you to Joel Shaw and Lawrence Hiney for stepping up from U13s, with Lawrence taking a nice stumping.
On Tuesday night we were able to take on Stockport in 3rd round of Cheshire Cup. Batting first, Dan Woodside and Lewis Clarke opened and steadily accumulated runs, picking off the bad deliveries. Both reached 50 and retired not out, and we finished on 143-1 off 20 overs. Our bowling was very tight to start with and Stockport struggled to 30-3 off 11 overs, with 3 run outs. The remaining overs were then shared amongst all the team and Ollie Finch picked up 3 wickets for 12 runs.Stockport finished on 109 – 7, giving us a 34 run win. Again, thanks to U13 Joe Shenton for stepping up to keep wicket.
The Over 40s visit Bredbury on Wednesday evening.
The 1sts host Bowdon on Saturday, with the 2nd XI travelling in the other direction.
Sunday sees the 3rds at Toft, and the 4th XI host Alderley Edge
