Saturday Results Round Up

2nds, 3rds and 4ths march on but 1sts suffer heavy defeat.

A real off-day for the 1sts ended in a huge 228 run defeat at the hands of Kimberley.  After inviting their visitors to bat they could mostly only watch as 330 runs were scored for the loss of only 3 wickets.  The reply of just 102 left us with a paltry single point from the game.

The 2nds had a real fight on their hands against Gedling Colliery.  A reasonable
Chris Allcoat hits the winning runs
total from the home side of 209 all out with Allan Moss taking 2 for 14 and Akif Farooq 3 for 66 was made more difficult by the loss of early wickets as wickets tumbled to 88 for 6.  In a desperately close finish it was left to Chris Allcoat (67*) to hit the winning runs with just two balls and one wicket to spare.  Chris received great support from Akif Farooq with an invaluable 33 in an 86 run partnership.  The 2nds retain their unbeaten record and consolidate their position at the top of SNCL Division C with a 17 point lead.


The 3rds are also top of their division by 16 points with an unbeaten record. 
Sam Randall in typical action
After electing to bat first at Hoveringham we looked to be in some trouble at 58 for 4 but a 5th wicket partnership of 138 between Sam Randall who fell tantalisingly short of maiden century with 97 (9 fours and 6 sixes) and James Grenfell 51 took us through to 232 for 7.  Hoveringham's reply never really got going and they were dismissed for 128.  There were 3 wickets apiece for Pete Bateman and Colin McConnell and an impressive 3 stumpings and a catch for Nick Anderson-Pearce.


The success story continues in SNCL Division M as the 4ths put together 235 for
Carl Knight - a maiden century

6 against Thrumpton with Carl Knight making an unbeaten maiden century for the Club finishing unbeaten on 120 supported by Ali Lee with a senior cricket best of 42.  In reply Thrumpton slumped to 20 for 5 before recovering somewhat to close on 152 for 8 with James Binnie claiming 4 for 41.  The 4ths take over top spot in their division with a 15 point lead.
