Double delight for Burnham Sports
3:21pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Sport
THERE was double delight for Burnham Sports as both of their teams avoided relegation on a dramatic final day of the season.
Burnham’s first team went into their last T.Rippon Mid-Essex League first division match, away to Great Totham, needing a victory to guarantee safety and stayed up in style – winning by five wickets after being set 240 to win.
As it transpired, other results meant that Sports could have lost and still beaten the drop.
They finished sixth in the table and, with better batting, can look forward to a more prosperous time in 2014.
Meanwhile, Burnham’s seconds went into their last game, at home to East Hanningfield & Great Burstead, needing a win to have any chance of staying up in division eight.
Greg Campion’s men achieved that in commanding fashion by 83 runs.Sports finish their season with a 40-over Warsop League game away to Billericay (start 1pm) on Sunday.
