Ber­ridge boosts Bag­gies

Bagshot.................... 204 Son­ning.................... 138

Aldershot News & Mail - - ROUND-UP -

ALL-ROUNDER Nick Ber­ridge smashed a mag­fi­cient cen­tury to turn Bagshot into sud­den pro­mo­tion con­tenders.

Ber­ridge cracked an un­beaten 107 to help Matt Pet­tet’s side to a much-needed 25-point win over Son­ning which saw them leap from third bot­tom to third top in an ex­tremely tight divi­sion 2B ta­ble.

Ber­ridge scored over half of Bagshot’s runs as Zubair Khan’s 5-61 re­duced the vis­i­tors to a getable 204 in 47 overs.

But Bagshot weren’t to be de­nied and com­plete a full house of vic­to­ries for the four se­nior sides at Lon­don Road by skit­tling their hosts for just 138 in 38.2 overs.

Fleet, mean­while, gave their sur­vival hopes a boost with only a sec­ond vic­tory of the sea­son in divi­sion 2A.

Cap­tain Pete Tal­bot led by ex­am­ple as he took 5-81 in re­duc­ing vis­i­tors Ger­rards Cross II to 158 all out at Calthorpe Park.

And the bot­tom club made sure they ral­lied to their first vic­tory tar­get of the sea­son, scrap­ing home with four overs and three wick­ets to spare.

They now lie 22 points adrift of Bri­tish Air­ways at the foot of the ta­ble and 25 off of safety.
