Bromyard Avenue side enjoyed 27-run victory in final league game of season
Shepherds Bush ended the Middlesex County Premier Division season on a high with a 27-run victory away to second-placed Ealing.
The Bromyard Avenue outfit lost the toss and were put into bat first, but a knock of 78 from Idris Otto-Mian saw them close on 238-9.
Stephen Barnard (3-40), Oliver James (3-42) and Dexter Marsh (3-44) then all took three wickets with the ball for Bush as Ealing were dismissed for just 211 in reply.
It was a satisfying end to the campaign for the Bromyard Avenue outfit, having got the better of the team who finished second in the table.
The victory also allowed Bush to secure a finish in the top half, climbing above Hampstead and up to fifth in the final standings.
With the season now over, the Bromyard Avenue side can reflect on another solid campaign in the top flight.
And Bush will hope they can improve when the new term begins next year, with the final day win over Ealing having shown they can compete with the best in the division.
