On: Tuesday, 14 May 2019
Venue: at Home

On Tuesday, the school welcomed the annual fixture of the XL Club. This is always a well contested and tough fixture for the school.

On a bright, sunny day the XL batted first in this 30/30 game. The opening pair built up a good run rate and took the attack to the bowling unit.. A coule of essential break thorughs everntually came the schools way and this gave the young side a lift. It was good to see Ben E make his senior debut, and along with the captain T SP, built up pressure and both ended with very respectable figures. Ben E (2-34) T SP (4-20). The XL were eventually bowled out for 186 in 28 overs.

The Bloxham run chase started badly with the loss of three quick wickets, but the experince of T SP and Henry H helped steady the ship. Both these players went on to see the game thorugh to the end with Bloxham winning by 7 wickets. T SP finished on 118* and Henry H 57* - a partnership of 157.

The game was played in a great spirit by both teams and we look forward to welcoming the XL Club back next season.
