Bury Times: Brooksbottom win annual Boxing Day fixture Brooksbottom win annual Boxing Day fixture

Brooksbottom took the spoils at home to Tottington St John’s in the 51st annual Boxing Day cricket match.

The Summerseat club won a tight game by two wickets after reaching 110-8 in reply to the visitors’ 107-8 from their 20 overs.

Tottington skipper Simon Marsh won the toss and elected to bat in the 12 v 12 game – a decision that soon backfired as they found themselves with five wickets down for just 11 runs.

Brox president Mark Richardson was the architect of their downfall with 4-3 off his allotted two overs, while Marsh was the standout batsman, hitting 43 not out.

Paul Hopton got the Brooksbottom innings off to a good start, scoring 31, before Nick Marsh ripped through the middle order, taking 3-1. But his effort could not tip the balance as Brox made it past the Tottington total with two overs to spare.
