BRIDGWATER brothers Mark and Nathan Rose played host to a fantastic charity cricket match held at Bridgwater Cricket Club.

Billed as the battle-of-the-Rose's, in excess of 100 spectators were witness to a fun-filled day, which raised more than £900 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The coin toss saw younger brother Nathan's Nimble Sloggers put Mark's Saga Warriors into bat.

The Warriors went well, totalling 107/7, with runs coming from the captain himself, alongside contributions from "local legend" Terry Clarke and seasoned veteran Peter Rose.

In reply, Nathan's Nimble Sloggers posted early runs from Hayden Standerwick and Jeremy Rose, before a middle order batting collapse saw them slump to 85/6 from 15 overs.

This brought a resilient Will Rose to the crease who, along with his uncle, Julian Wellings saw the sloggers bat it out to an eventual draw.

The fun continued after the match with a raffle, bake sale and dancing well into the late hours.

Commenting on the day's event, local firefighter Nathan, said he was overwhelmed with the amount of support given to a great cause which is close to his family's heart.
