Bures C.C. Big Bash


The end of the season Big Bash set the Essex side of Bures CC against the Suffolk side. Essex won the toss and put Suffolk into bat. The unlikely opening pair, Morgan and Witt, started out well with Rob Witt striking the ball as well as we have seen him (ever). The slip cordon moved en masse to cow corner having clubbed three 4s in that direction. With runs slowing Rob was retired on 19. Max contributed a rapid 19 before being bowled by James. Gordon followed, and to everyone’s surprise, including himself, set about the Essex attack bowlers (N. Morse), with arguably the most memorable cover drive for four. Out for 18, caught by Steve and bowled by Narns, Tom entered the fray. Scoring 7, he retired to allow the tail end to come in and the match moved seamlessly from 20 to 25 overs. Tozer scored a fine 16 before succumbing in the final over to a straight ball from Brewer. Charlie Erith, likewise, had his middle stump removed (perhaps a little bit of exaggeration) as he attempted to drive Brewer back into Essex. All out for 127.

With a quick turnaround and grey clouds looming Essex went into bat with Stevie T. and Barclay getting the side off to a quick start, scoring 8 and 17 respectively. Giles retired after a rapid-fire 26.
The middle order fell without runs. Jim steadied the ship, retiring after a short spell at the crease with 25. Dave White and Brewer batted out the innings, both scoring 21 not out.

We retired to the Eight Bells for well-deserved refreshments. It was lovely to see so many family and supporters join the teams to sign off on what was a very enjoyable day.

There was only one winner today – Bures CC. As we draw the 2022 season to a close, we look forward to next season with optimism. In the meantime, some rest and relaxation, prepare the
square after a very dry season, and look forward to the club’s Curry night and trophy allocations.
