Cricket: Bradley Stoke Cricket Club

The Second XI produced another excellent performance at the Baileys Court cricket ground, winning their game over Nailsea despite losing captain Gareth Price to a broken jaw. This was made up by Ben Wooster who scored 59 and Tom Laver who scored 26 before being dismissed. This was also backed up by Shahbaz Hussain who scored a solid 19 with the bat. Chris Phillips did well with the ball taking three wickets in the first innings. Report by Connor Summers
