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|
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.
