At The Strand the 1st XI amassed 291 for 8 with Chris Allcoat
|Chris Allcoat 126 not out|
The 2nd XI's lead at the top of of Division B was reduced by a single point as they could only manage a winning draw at Thurgaton. 47 from Neil Thurlow, including 4 sixes, supported by 39 from both Jack Harrison and Albert Gardiner took our score to 230. Arjun Sandhu took 4 for 35 but there seemed little prospect of bowling out the hosts until a late flurry of wickets left them on 161 for 8.
A much needed win for the 3rd XI at Long Lane against Woodborough saw them
|Josh Knight 117|
The game itself was a triumph for Josh Knight whose 117 runs including 14 boundaries secured his first century for the club. A partnership of 155 between Josh and skipper Sam Randall 89 (11 4s and 3 6s) helped take the total to 267 for 7.
Woodborough were then bowled out for just 90 with three wickets for Colin McConnell and two apiece for James Grenfell and James Binnie.
At Collingham in Division L the 4th XI faced a tough total to chase down as the home side scored 231 for 8 from their 40 overs and whilst there were fine performances in reply from Gordon Airey 95 and young Finlay Meakin 62 the target was just too much as our innings closed on 191 for 2.
