Weekend Roundup & Team News – 8 June 2023
The weekend started with a thrilling tie in our T20 game against Todmorden. Batting first Todmorden set us 161 to win and at one stage it looked as though we would fall just short. But thanks to Harry’s 44 off 38 balls and after some great shots and running by Seb, Nick and Charlie we ran a two off the last ball to tie. Full scorecard here and the livestream is here
