After a couple of rained off games in the early summer the Baltic Exchange Cricket Club’s season got under way against Clarksons on 26 June in a Twenty20 match held at the Battersea Ironsides ground.
Batting first, the Baltic posted 156-5, with Al Shelley (MOL), Alex Wright (Vessel Value) and Will Halliday (Braemar ACM) top scoring. In return, Clarksons managed 130-9, with James Harris (Braemar ACM) taking two wickets and debutant Gus Edgell (BDM) grabbing three difficult catches in the deep.
Under sunnier skies, the Baltic then took on Howe Robinson on 2 July in the familiar surrounds of Barnes CC. Batting first, the Baltic reached an imposing 192-5, with key contributions from Fractal’s Theo Booth (25*), Nomikos’ Ben Regan (26*) and Clarksons’ duo Nathan Roberts and Henry Potter. Howe Robinson were bowled out in the 19th over for 121, with Al Shelley’s 3-15 finishing off proceedings after fiery opening spells from Will Marks and James Harris.
Those interested in getting involved are invited to contact Will Halliday.
