1sts Win and Go Top

Our 1st XI remain on target for a return to the Nottinghamshire Premier League with a win against Hucknall that saw them leapfrog their opponents to go top.  Hucknall managed 208 with 4 wickets for Stanny Simon and 3 for the returning Ben Bhabra before Ben Bhabra 49 not out, Thom Murray 49, Martin Shoemaker 42 and Sam Clulow knocked off the runs with 4 wickets to spare.  Scorecard 
The 1sts are now 12 points ahead with just 5 games remaining.

Albert Gardiner
The 2nd XI continued their unbeaten season with a 131 run hammering of Ellerslie.  Albert Gardiner with a very accomplished 81 and skipper Richard Henson (48) starred with the bat putting on 130 for the third wicket before a late flurry from Pete Bateman (21 took them to 196 for 6 from their 45 overs.  Wickets tumbled regularly for Ellerslie as they were bowled out for just 65.  Honours were shared between Jai Jandu (3-13), Mark Walsh, continuing his excellent form, (2-3 from 7 overs), Charlie Simkiss (2-10) and Tom Shields (2-21). Scorecard
The 2nds lead the table by 37 points but with two games to play against second placed Gedling Colliery the champions tag isn't theirs yet, although promotion is almost a mathematical certainty. 

The 3rd XI had a welcome win at Oxton by 8 wickets.  Oxton after being reduced to 33 for 6 struggled to 114 with 3 wickets apiece for George Barker (3-33) and Callum Turney (3-21) who were both on hat-tricks.  Josh Knight 51* and Matt Shaw 37 saw their team home for a 20 point win. Scorecard
The 3rds remain in 8th place in the table, well clear on points of the relegation places below, but still only 33 points behind the second placed club.

The 4th XI made it a full house with a win over second placed Poplars at Long Lane.  Poplars were restricted to 152 for 8 with Alistair Lee claiming 4 for 41.  Ever reliable Carl Knight (69*) and Andy Waddle (42) saw their side home by 6 wickets with 5 overs to spare.  Scorecard
The 4ths remain in 4th place in a very close battle where 4 team are separated by just 11 points for the second promotion spot.
