Fulwood & Broughton v Blackpool

For their first ever home game in the Northern Premier League Fulwood and Broughton entertained a very strong Blackpool team.

Despite being well beaten by 8 wickets Fulwood and Broughton fought very hard and for a long time the game was in the balance.

Blackpool won the toss and put Fulwood and Broughton in on a very slow wicket made more so after the heavy rain on the previous day.

Against some tight bowling from the pro Jovaun Van Wyngaardt and Matthew Grindley the home side made slow but solid progress. Both openers Captain Mark Smith 12 and Rana 23 fell to Grindley who also took the third wicket of Rob Dingle4.

A patient partnership then took place between Charlie Rossiter 19 and Pro Simon Kerrigan20 before Wyngaardt got to work in his second spell.

It looked as though no more than 120 was going to be achieved until Matthew Smith played a very good innings full of attractive shots. He provided impetus to the innings scoring 36 off 22 balls with 4 fours and 2 sixes.

Fulwood and Broughton were all out in the last over for 147 missing out on a batting bonus point by 3 runs. Jovaun Van Wyngaardt with 5-59 off 16overs and Matthew Grindley 3-31 off 17 overs were the pick of the bowlers.

In reply Blackpool started slowly losing Tomas King for 8. Gradually after some tight bowling from Chris Brookes ( who finished with 1-25 off 10 overs) and Joe Fenton Matthew Houston and Joshua Boyne settled in and as the wicket eased slightly they put on an excellent 52 before Houston fell for a patient and well constructed 32.

Boyne was joined by the pro and after a short settling in period they accelerated. It was clear that Blackpool were now going to win the game and their aggression brought victory in the 39th over.Boyne was 56 no off 91 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes. Wyngaardt was 43no off 43 balls and their partnership was worth 90 off 86 balls in 50 minutes.

This meant that in the end after a hard fight Blackpool ran out worthy winners. Credit to Fulwood and Broughton they have a lovely ground and clubhouse. The game was watched by a fair crowd and excellent hospitality was shown to everyone attending.

All in all the impression from the day's experience is that they will be a very good addition to the Northern League.
