Good afternoon and welcome to the players, supporters and officials of Batley CC to Jenny Lane for what is the final home game of the season.
After a very average mid season we have managed to gain a little momentum by winning the last 2 games at home to Yeadon and last week at Hartshead Moor when we batted first and reached 220 with good performances from Jonny (71) and Hamzah (62) and then restricting them to 137 with Mounam (4-51) Hamzah (3-2) and Mushy (2-21) bowling well.
As it stands we are currently 7th in the table with today's opponents 4 points ahead in 6th with 3 games remaining.
When we met Batley earlier this season Brett took 5 wickets as they scored 211-9 batting first. Unfortunately in the rain affected reply despite Hamzah and Simon both scoring 50s we were bowled out for 175.
The 2nd team travel to Methley today trying to cement their spot at the top of the table while the 3rd team play away at Thornbury and the 4s at home to Muff Field
On a side note the Junior and Senior presentation evening will be taking place on Friday September 28 at the club
Enjoy the game
