Match Report
Bloxham School 1st XI vs  Westbury CC
On: Saturday, 20 Apr 2019
Venue: at Home

Bloxham started their season with a pre-season game against Westbury CC. On a hot and bright day, not usual for this time of the season, the Bloxham boys' looked to put in a good performance against a good Westbury CC side. Westbury won the toss in this T25 fixture and opted to bat first on what was a good pitch. a bright start from Westbury was halted by some good bowling by Jamie M, who kept things tight early on. Half way through the innings Bloxham started to make in roads into the Westbury batting and kept the scoring rate down. Westbury CC finished their inning on 124-3.

Bloxham lost their top 3 early with not many runs on the board. A good partnership from Ben S and Henry H helped steady the ship, and put Bloxham in a good position. When Henry H was out in the 14th over Harri B looked assured and supported Ben S to see the innings through to the end.

Overall, a good first up performance from the school with some positive performances. A big thank you to Westbury CC for the game and it was played in a great spirit and hopefully look forward to another fixture at the start of next season.
