Armitage Bridge won the toss and decided to bat but were soon in trouble after Walter Kasim struck early on removing opener Saqib Matlub and then overseas player Marco Van Biljon to leave them 10 for 2. This brought in Jaycob Curtling who then played what turned out to be the match winning innings. With main support from opener Chris Dennison (27), Matthew West (19) and Andy Gledhill (23) he steered Armitage Bridge’s innings along to compile 78 off 127 balls (5 4's and 2 6's). This enabled Bridge to post a total of 196 all out which ultimately proved too much for Delph. The pick of the bowlers was Walter Kasim with 4 for 48.
Marco Van Biljon soon removed Delph’s youthful openers Xander Selby and Nathan Jones and when Alex Peters was adjudged lbw the innings was rocking at 28 for 3, from which it never recovered. Only Rehan Afridi (23 and Louis Aspeling (15) reached double figures and the innings subsided to 97 all out with only just over half the allocated overs used. Jaycob Curtling confirmed his man of the match status taking 4 for 17.
