Promotion is cause to celebrate for Keynsham Cricket Club

Keynsham Cricket ClubDespite the forecast of failure in the last report, Keynsham Cricket Club secured promotion with an astounding performance away at Goatacre CC.

Trailing the home side in the race for the second promotion spot by a massive 20 points, they scored 24 points to Goatacre’s three to pip them by a single point.

The key point was skipper Gary Worgan declaring in the 44th over on a score of 227-7. They then had to restrict Goatacre to a score of under 120, which they managed due to another stroke of genius by Worgan, in using just a spin attack throughout to bowl the home side out for just 94.  All this was achieved with a very young team, deprived of its two most senior players, Rich Pannell and Dave Burston.

Celebrations continued into the night and they were joined by the third 11 who also gained promotion, winning their league under skipper Martyn Yarde.

With the under-11s and under-13s also winning trophies, it was a great end to a rotten summer for cricket, given all the atrocious weather “enjoyed” by all.
