Beverley Town Club 3rds embarked on their longest trip of the season to the picturesque ground of . Town won the toss and elected to bowl first on a spongy looking pitch.

Beverley’s reply got off to a horrible start as they were first reduced to 6 for 2 and then 16 for 4, but the evergreen (29) and new number seven (30 not out) rescued Beverley to score the required runs inside 29 over’s.

This was the 3rds second win in as many weeks and Captain was delighted overall with the display but was slightly concerned how some batsmen didn’t seem to want ‘dig in’ when required.

Speaking after the match, Welburn said;

“It was another fantastic result, but we made hard work for ourselves, bowling Pattrington out for 95, we probably thought it was going to be an easy day.

“After we lost 4 wickets very early on, Fordon and Dobson finally dug deep and got us going.”

“Fordo played a superb innings for 29 on a really difficult track, but Fish came in and won us the game with a brilliant 30 from 33 balls.”

“We’ve got such a strong batting line up, and it’s great to see the competition for the places higher up in the order.”
