Saturday Results

Byron Haycock 87
The 1st XI maintained their lead at the top of Division A with a comprehensive win over lowly Hoveringham.  There were runs aplently for the home side as they racked up 303 for 6 from their 50 overs after winning the toss.  Tom Murray 49 and Ben Shaw 37 put on almost 100 for the first wicket before Byron Haycock 87 and Ben Bhabra 76, continuing his impressive form with bat, put on 157 for the 4th wicket.  Hoveringham couldn't make much of a fist of it as wickets fell regularly before they were bowled out for 145.  There were three wickets apiece for Ben Bhabra, Pete Bhabra and Andy Simkiss. 

Will Shields

It was a day to forget at The Breach as Eastwood humbled the 2nd XI by 7 wickets with 37 overs to spare.  Only Will Shields made much of an impression with the bat with 31 in a total of 95 all out.  In a flurry of boundaries the home side cruised to victory sending the visitors back home with just a solitary point which is now their reduced lead at the top of Division B, albeit with a game in hand.

There was a similar story at Chilwell as the 3rd XI slipped to a 6 wicket defeat.  There were 45 unbeaten runs from Colin McConnell in a total of 131 for 5 from 45 overs. Martin Firbank and Josh Wilson chipped in with 23 and 22 respectively.  Chilwell's reply relied heavily on their opener who made 82 not out of their winning reply having used just half of their overs.  Colin McConell again starring in taking all four wickets for 23

The 4th XI secured a good win on Long Lane against a Collingham team with less than a full complement.  Electing to bat first the visitors recorded 128 all out with Nick Gibson claiming 3 wickets for 1 run.  In reply Carl Knight 34 and Andy Waddle 53* were the mainstays as the target was surpassed with 8 overs to spare.
