A batting collapse condemned Brondesbury to a third defeat from their opening six games as they lost by 136 runs at home against Teddington in the Premier Division of the Middlesex County Cricket League.

Chasing a victory target of 255, the hosts toppled from 93-2 to 97-7 and ultimately fell well short, with visting bowler David Keightley recording figures of 8-33.

Brondesbury captain John Fosbraey won the toss and inserted Teddington, who made a very strong start and reached 139 without loss.

The opening partnership was finally broken as James Wade (64) was caught by Sam Smith off the bowling of Jamie Odell (1-53), but Harry Bush went on to make 78 and lead the visitors to 174-1 before being bowled by Fosbraey.

Rain interrupted play and 10 overs were lost to the weather as a result, but the runs kept coming through Ben Williams (22), Richard King (23) and Tom Ullyot (15).

They were all prised out by Tom Kopelman (3-60) while Fosbraey (2-51) bowled Tom Twiney (9), but Joe Barnett (13 not out) and Duncan Wood (10no) were still going strong when Teddington declared at 254-6 after 52 overs.

Brondesbury were given 55 overs to reply and they initially began competitively. Keightley removed James Overy (19) and Vanderspar (29), but Hugh Gimber took the hosts to 93-2.

However, Gimber was snared lbw by Bush (1-17) for a top score of 30, and that sparked a dramatic collapse as Keightley rapidly worked his way down the order with five successive wickets.

Simon Butler went for eight and Jordan Bethel followed for a duck, while Sam Smith (1) and Adam Wilson (1) had similarly brief spells at the crease.

Chris Blake got into double figures, notching 11, but Keightley caught Kopelman (1) before bowling last man Fosbraey in the 54th over as Brondesbury were skittled with nine balls left.
