The Bears First Team Coach was reflecting on his side's battling four-day draw at Emirates Old Trafford.

“We’re pleased because we showed a lot of character,” Robinson said. “We didn’t quite get the toss right, it was a real 50-50 one , neither team knew what to do. 

“Dom Sibley batted outstandingly well to get us to a score that was competitive but we were looking down the barrel when they were 127 without loss going into the third day.  

“Then Will Rhodes led the team exceptionally well and the bowlers responded brilliantly, backed up by the fielders. Today it looked as though things were calmer but then we had a little flurry of wickets and we needed Chris Benjamin and Danny Briggs to settle things down again.

“We’re going home, happy with the points and the character we showed in the match.”
