Saturday Results

Byron Haycock 102*
The 1sts put last week's nightmare behind them and closed the gap on leaders Collingham in recording a winning draw.  Byron Haycock with 102 not out and Chris Allcoat with 94 were the mainstays of our innings with a partnership of 161 in a total of 250 for 4.  It was Byron's first competitive century for the club and Chris's highest 1st team score.  Collingham soon settled for a losing draw to minimise the damage and their innings closed at 187 for 5 with 3 wickets for Dom Harvey.  Despite dropping a place to 3rd Attenborough are now just 6 points behind the leaders.

The 2nds lost their unbeaten record with a losing draw at Caythorpe.  The home side were restricted to 210 with Tom Shields managing to complete an heroic stint of 16 overs on the bounce.  Their were 3 wickets for Charlie Simkiss and 2 apiece for Pete Bateman and Tom Shields.  In the reply only new recruit Neil Thurlow got going and he finished with an unbeaten 65 from 103 balls, his first 50 for the club.  The innings closed at 160 for 7 as Neil Thrlow and James Grenfell saw out the overs.  The 2nds remain proudly on top of Division B with Plumtree chasing hard now just 10 points behind.

In a game played in great spirit the 3rds went down to a closely fought defeat at home to Keyworth by just 2 wickets.  Batting first we scored 140 for 7 from our 45 overs with youngsters Finlay Meakin 32 and Cameron Webster, an unbeaten 34 leading the way.  Their efforts were to no avail though as the visitors reached their target with a late flurry of runs winning by just 2 wickets and with 4 overs to spare.  Rob Howarth led the bowlers with 3 for 43 supported by 2 wickets for James Hopwood.

In Division L the 4ths recorded a good win by 5 wickets at Kirkby Portland.  The home side were bowled out for 130 with Lakshay Shrama starring with the ball taking 3 for 4 in 4 overs.  Carl Knight then steered his team to victory from the front, opening the innings and scoring 53.  It was left to Andy Waddle 22* and Lakshay again to knock off the winning runs with 7 overs to spare.
