Saturday Results

Only three games were played this week with the 4s game at Lowdham cancelled.  The weather also impacted on the games that were played with reduced overs to accommodate the showers and relatively low scoring because of damp wickets and outfields.

At The Strand the 1sts were bowled out for 130 against Long Eaton but the bowling attack saw off the visitors with Ben Bhabra starring with 6 for 19, his best ever return for the club, supported by Ryan Swiers with 3 for 19 in a total of 101.  With nearest rivals Collingham being unable to complete their game the 1sts have now established an 18 point lead at the top of Division A.

In Division B the 2s have an 11 point lead after winning by 25 runs at Clifton Village.  After being put into bat the innings owed much to Pete Bateman
Tom Shields 6 for 38
contributing 47 of a total of 131 all out with Will Shields making a patient 23 after opening the innings.  There was no doubt about the bowling hero as Tom Shields ripped through the home side's batting to finish with a another club best 6 for 38. Martin Rayner though had the first and last word after claiming the wickets of both openers and then the final wicket with the first ball of the final over.


It was not such a happy story for the 3s as they went down to a 9 wicket defeat on Long Lane at the hands of division leaders Balderton.  There were good contributions from Ben Sheppard 48 and Colin McConnell 32 in a total of 118 for 9.  However the bowling attack couldn't make much inroad into the visitors batting as they knocked off the runs for the loss of one wicket with 8 overs to spare.
