Barrowford Cricket Club would like to thank Cottages 4 You for kindly sponsoring the club this season by providing playing shirts.

It is hoped that the sponsorship will help the club to build on last season’s promotion success.

Last weekend saw the first team beat defending First Division champions Crossflats, following he opening round defeat by Embasy.

Barrowford set 218 thanks to 62 from Nick Burton, 51 from Andrew Smith and 44 from Freddy Bailey.

Crossflats were bowled out for 200, Dave Flounders with 3-48 and Simon Jones with 3-18.

The second team maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a one-wicket victory over Bradley.

Nigel Jones, Wasim Ali and Ajmal Choudrhy all took two wickets as Bradley set 185.

Barrowford reached the total with two balls remaining, largely due to Ajmal Chourdrhy hitting 75.
