REMARKABLE PERFORMANCE BY BRIGG TOWN
Leading their division and on course for the championship, Brigg Town Cricket Club turned in one of their most impressive bowling performances in years to secure a quickfire win yesterday in the Lincolnshire County Cricket League, sponsored by Readers.
Brigg bowled out Louth 3rds for just 22 runs at Hibaldstow - a ground with a long history of favouring batsmen over bowlers.
Destroyer-in-chief was Brigg's left-arm seamer Nick Beacock, who took seven wickets while conceding only eight runs - a remarkable performance by the skipper.
'Captain Beaky' was ably supported by fellow opening bowler Tom Brock, who claimed three for nine.
Brigg needed only 4.4 overs to secure an eight-wicket win and bag the maximum 20 points available.
On Saturday, August 5 they will visit Keelby 2nds for the next division four fixture.
