At Kimberley the 1sts took on a club chasing hard for the title and came off very much second best. Asked to bat first we struggled to cope with
|Hardy (or foolhardy) John Birkin & Keith Sperry brave the rain|
The 2nds just managed to complete a win over Hucknall before the rain came down. In a game reduced to 42 overs a side Hucknall batted first and were bowled out for 165 with James Hallam starring with the ball as he bamboozled more batsman in taking 4 for 48. In reply Allan Moss was in fine fettle with the bat scoring 86 not out with 16 4s and a 6. The win maintains the pressure on Division C league leaders Plumtree who also won.
For the 3rds and 4ths the rain came too soon.
The 3rds looked certain to win again and needed to capture just 3 more wickets to secure a win over Cotgrave. Batting first we just passed the 200 mark for the loss of 6 wickets with Pete Bateman making 58 and Sam Randall 31*. Cotgrave were in real trouble at 60 for 6 when the rain came; Sam Henson maintaining his good bowling form with 3 for 12.
The top of the table clash against Farndon for the 4ths was much more balanced affair after Farndon had scored 224 for 5 we had replied with 37 without loss before the rain bought an end to proceedings.With Collingham managaing to secure a win despite the weather, they leapfrog both Farndon and Attenboprough to the top of the table.
