Saturday Results

Pride of place this week goes to the 2nds who, after their 6 wicket win over Gedling Colliery, are Champions of Division D.  Asked to bat first Gedling struggled somewhat to 172 for 6 with 3 wickets for Jai Jandu and some economical bowling from Mark Walsh and Charlie Simkiss who went for just 30 and 38 runs respectively from their full 12 overs.  With the result only ever in doubt as far as the scorer was concerned, the win was achieved off the last ball of the 43rd over to yield maximum batting points.  Fittingly it was skipper Rich Henson that hit the winning boundary in his 35 not out after Chris Allcoat (69), Gordon Airey (23) and Allan Moss (23) had laid the foundations. Scorecard
Consecutive promotions then for the 2s and just reward this year for their efforts in finishing well clear at the top of their division.  Congratulations and well done to all those involved.
SNCL Division D Champions - 2nd Team after their win over Gedling Colliery

The 1st team still head Division A but have had their lead over Hucknall cut to 9 points after a winning draw against Gedling Colliery.  Alec McKinlay 50, Craig Heiden 49, Martin Shoemaker 40 and Dom Terkowski 37 shared the runs around in a total of 226 for 6. We couldn't however bowl out the opposition despite 4 for 42 from Stanny Simon as they finished on 180 for 7. Scorecard

The 3rd team had a convincing 135 run over Lenton & Willoughby with 66 from Colin McConell and 46 from Josh Knight in a score of 190 for 9.  In reply Lenton could only muster 55 with Matt Ahluwalia 3-11, Spike Turner 3-27, Callum Turney 2-11 and Mark Bateman 1-0 taking the wickets.  The 3rds move up to 5th in the table. Scorecard

The 4ths looked to be going down to Whatton & Aslockton before the rain intervened and the game was abandoned.  We were 79 for 5 with Carl Knight unbeaten on 52 in reply to the home side's 158 for 9 with James Hallam taking 3 for 33. Scorecard
