Bolton School v NW

Thu 6th July 2017 at 11.00
School won by 8 wickets
Played at Bolton School, Chorley New Road, Bolton, BL1 4RD

Match Report

XL won the toss and elected to bat. After a steady start on an unpredictable wicket they reached 80 before the third wicket fell. From then on in some rash shots and good bowling resulted in the Club only managing to reach 118 before they were dismissed.

The School had no such problems when they batted and raced to a comprehensive victory in 22 overs to provide them with their first victory over the Club in 4 years.

Thanks must go to the school for their usual first class hospitality both on and off the field, and especially the master i/c  Andy Compton.

We look forward to our visit again next year.
