Andrew Bramley ton not enough as Burwell & Exning become the draw specialists in East Anglian Premier League
Burwell & Exning are fast becoming the draw specialists of the East Anglian Premier League.
They were away to Vauxhall Mallards last Saturday, having drawn their previous two matches.
Having won the toss and elected to bat, they had a wobble at the top of the inninings at 21 for 2.
Andrew Bramley was the steadying influence at No 4 though, and he walloped an unbeaten 122, off 109 balls including 20 fours, and, with support from Matt Mitcham (27), Jamie Seabrook (28) and Alex Scully (20), Burwell & Exning reached 253 for 7.
Archie Bradnock and James Bridges proved the bane of their existence though.
They had Mallards reeling at 59 for 8, but Bradnock made 10 not out off 36 balls and Bridges hit 26 as Mallards closed on 104 for 9 to earn a draw.
Sam Rippington finished with four for 21 and Bramley got two for 25.
Cambridge’s home match with Sudbury was abandoned as a draw.
They are currently second from bottom in the table, two places and 24 points beneath Burwell & Exning.
Cambridge visit Saffron Walden on Saturday (July 13), while Burwell & Exning host Copdock & Old Ipswichian.
