Rain Thwarts Barrow Firsts After Posting Competitive Total

Rain dashed Barrow Gurney’s hopes of continuing their First Xi’s winning streak on Saturday.

Jason Cryans reaches another half century against Abbots Leigh

Batting first at Hobbs Lane, Barrow put on 247-9, building on a 110 opening partnership between Jason Cryans (60) and Ellie Holdaway (49). Kieran Owen (22), Ed Holdway (26), Josh Yelland (34) and Guy Fisher all made solid contributions in a good batting effort.

When Mark Fisher then dismissed key Abbots Leigh batsman, James Holdsworth, Barrow’s hopes were high of pressing home the advantage but bad light and rain ended proceedings with the visitors 22-1.

After similar rain-affected matches elsewhere, Barrow lost no ground to remain top of Division 5.

Barrow’s Second XI opponents Old Bristolians 4ths had conceded the fixture before the weather could intervene.
