Reed openers in mammoth stand

NATIONAL VILLAGE CUP, ROUND 3. An under strength Sharnbrook and Bromham side encountered a Reed side in scintillating form in the third round of the Village Cup. Sean Tidey and Richard Wharton capitalised to the tune of 249 runs in 32 overs before Tidey was caught for a brutal 147 from 93 balls.Wharton continued to reach his own century (108 not out) whilst Rob Lankester (20) and Jack Tidey (23 not out) maintained the scoring rate. An understandably demoralised opposition were then skittled out for 55 as Tom Greaves (4-11) and Toby Fynn (3-17) raced through their 8 overs in case rain intervened. However it was left to Sean Tidey and Stuart Smith to polish off the tail. Reed will now face local rivals Preston in the Regional Final on June 9th on The Green.
