Saturday Results Round Up

Whilst the 1st XI had a disappointing losing draw at Caythorpe, all our other Saturday sides recorded quite comprehensive victories on their first Saturday in SNCL action.

The 1st team recovered slightly after Caythorpe started well in reaching 143 for 1, bowling the home side out for 244 in the final over.  Dom Harvey was the pick of the bowlers with 4 for 42 whilst Buffy Landa claimed 3 for 17.  Attenborough's reply started really badly slipping to 94 for 6 before Dom Harvey (30) and Ben Bhabra shared a 50 partnership to frustrate their opponents.  Attenborough finished on 150 for 8 from their full 50 overs to claim a losing draw.

The 2nds took on fellow promotees Beston and Toton Sycamore at The Strand and restricted them to 121 for 9 from a reduced 42 overs.  Wickets were shared around with 2 each for Jai Jandu, Martin Rayner, Charlie Simkiss and Mark Walsh.  Attenborough easily knocked off the runs in less than 23 overs, albeit losing more wickets than they might have hoped.  Albert Gardiner was the star turn with the bat making a stylish 45 including 9 fours before being unluckily given out.

The 3rds took on Keyworth at Long Lane and, after losing a couple of early wickets, recovered through the efforts of James Grenfell (63 including 7 4s and

3 6s), Peter Bateman (40) and skipper Sam Randall (38) to close their innings on 198 for 9 from their full 45 overs.  Keyworth's reply looked to be going well at 92 for 2 but an excellent spell from George Barker (3 for 6 from 6 overs) and Peter Bateman (3 for 42) saw them home by 54 runs.


The 4ths managed 184 for 7 from 40 overs to set Burton Joyce a testing target with skipper Paul Hallam top scoring with 38, supported by Andy Waddle (34) and 12 year old league debutant John Wilson (32).  Burton Joyce's reply started disastrously and didn't get much better as they slumped to 64 all out with last year's SNCL Divisional Award winner James Binnie starting where he left off last year with 4 for 12 and 15 year old Joe Gibson claiming 2 for 18.
