BALCOMBE TROPHY REGIONAL SEMI FINAL PREVIEW

SUNDAY 25TH  JUNE Ė 1000HRS Ė BROMLEY BC

This Sunday Middlesex travel to Bromley BC to take part in the regional finals of the Balcombe Trophy.

In the mornings Semi Final they will face Surrey BA who beat Kent, away, in the 1st rd.

Middlesex will be represented by the same side who beat Buckinghamshire, also away, in the 1st rd, namely Glen Adams (Hendon), Barry Wheeler (West Ealing), Chris Harris & Tony Waller (Ladygate) plus Kevin Ward (Broomfield), Chris Dunkley (Poplar), Steve Stockley (Parsons Green) and Perry Cook (Poplar).

In their 1st rd tie Surrey were represented by Terry Friday, Paul Bennett, Gary Clarke & Simon Clarke plus Mark Porter, John Graham, Nathan Beeson and Dennis Hennessey. I canít find anything on their website to indicate if the same side are playing Sunday or if they are making changes but maybe I am looking in the wrong place!!!???

The last time the 2 Counties met in the Balcombe was in 2011 when Middlesex won a 1st rd tie before going on to reach the National Stages of the Competition at Worthing.

In the other Semi final Berkshire will play the Isle of Wight. The winners of the 2 semiís will face off in the Regional Final due to start at 1400hrs.

With another tough game envisaged I am sure the players would welcome your support on the morning.

Report next week.
