A strong and confident Buckhorn side took to the field against the Stalbridge Blues in the North Cup Final, on Tue. 4 June.
Having won the toss and put Stalbridge in to bat all 4 Buckhorn bowlers – Tommy Stewart, John Cooper, Alistair Johnson and Sam Godfrey bowled well, with a single wicket each for Cooper and Godfrey. The rest of the team supported superbly in the field, but Stalbridge somehow still managed to accumulate 132 for 2.
Buckhorns reply never really got going with only Stewart (17) making double figures. The side was eventually out in the 15th over for 74.
A pretty comprehensive victory, but Buckhorns team spirit was not dented and there were more than signs of the shape of things to come with many of the players showing really talent and application.
Onwards and upwards!
