Good Feeling Tactics In Brampton’s Swinton Victory

Brampton 118 for 7  Swinton  114

Beckford went for 13 and G Barnett, who has given some good batting displays this season, for 5. Ellison, Cadman and Broadhead attempted to make stands but were dismissed for 13, 14 and 21 respectively, and in the “tail” end E Woodhouse made a surprise rally and knocked 22 off some really accurate bowling before the Swinton innings closed at 114.

The first three Brampton batsmen gave their side a really promising start and knocked off 92 of the runs. All these R Denton had 15, G Taylor 44, and footballer Mark Crook 33. For more Brampton wickets fell before Winch and Crowcroft took the Brampton total to 118 for seven. 19 years old J. Briscoe gave the best bowling performance for Swinton, taking four for 13
