Saturday Results

The 1st XI had a fairly routine win against Ellerslie as the visitors were bowled out for just 126 with Ben Bhabra taking 4 for 26 and Dom
2016 South Nottinghamshire Cricket League Division A Champions
Harvey 3 for 20.  Byron Haycock then scored an unbeaten 62 supported by Ryan Swiers' unbeaten 30 as the 2016 SNCL Division A Champions ran out 5 wicket winners. 

At the top of Division B the 2nd XI secured a 3 wicket win at Kimberley.  The
Martin Shoemaker 48
home side did well to recover from 54 for 5 to 152 for 8 from a reduced 39 overs with Martin Rayner and Charlie Simkiss sharing the wickets equally.  In reply skipper Martin Shoemaker made 48 but it was left to old heads Rich Henson and then Martin Rayner to see us over the line with 3 wickets and 8 balls to spare.

The 2nd XI maintain their 15 point lead in the table with a game in hand and need to secure just 12 more points from three games to ensure promotion and 25 points to go up as champions.

Pete Bateman 3 - 16 and 63*
The 3rd XI faced a crucial trip to Hucknall needing a win to give themselves any chance of avoiding the drop from Division H.  In a game reduced to 36 overs the home side were asked to bat and struggled to 120 for 5 with an economical Pete Bateman claiming 3 for 16 from 9 overs.  Pete then starred with the bat in making an unbeaten 63 as the win was secured with 5 overs and 7 wickets to spare.
In a division where there could be either 3 or 4 teams relegated depending on who comes down from the Premier League, the 3rds now sit fourth from bottom with one game to go.

It was not such a good day for the 4ths as they were beaten by 49 runs by Radcliffe on Trent.  Lakshay Sharma was once again amongst the wickets with 3 for 18 in the visitor's total of 134 for 7 from 36 overs.  On the batting side our top scorer was extras with 22 in a total of just 85.
