Saturday Results

There were two centurions for the club this week as Chris Allcoat and Josh Knight helped secure victories for the 1st XI and 3rd XI respectively.

At The Strand the 1st XI amassed 291 for 8 with Chris Allcoat
Chris Allcoat 126 not out
remaining unbeaten on 126 (his highest score for the club and his first century for the 1st XI) and Ben Bhabra 45.  Bevoir's reply failed to make three figures as Ben Bhabra, excelling this time with the ball, took 4 for 25.  Leading Division A by 42 points, maximum points next week against bottom of the table Hoveringham will secure a return to the Nottinghamshire Premier League.


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
clamber away from the bottom of Division H.  With three games left a couple of wins could possibly see them escape the clutches of relegation despite at least 3 teams being relegated.

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.
