Weekend report 30th April

The 2s began their campaign this weekend against Balderton CC, bowling first the 2s restricted Balderton to 125 all out with Arjun 4-16 and Burhan 3-20 taking centre stage. After a difficult start Will Shields 45 and Ben Sheppard 40* guided the team home with a 5 wicket victory. The 1s were away to Mansfield Hosiery Mills, and losing the toss fielded first with Mansfield reaching 276-4 off their 50 overs, Andrew Simkiss the pick of the bowlers with 1-44 of 12 overs. It was a nervy second half with Steve Allcoat blasting a fantastic 115 but wickets falling at the wrong times they were bowled out 19 runs short of the target. The Sunday 1s were in action against a very strong Ellersile team who batted first and scored 205-4 with Tom Shields 8 overs 1-6, and Seth Puddy 0-26 of his 8 overs. Chasing proved a little harder than expected leaving it too late despite  a valiant effort by Bryon Haycock 69. Next week sees the start of junior games with the u15 in action Monday night at the strand, u11 and u12 both in action on Sunday. All four Saturday teams are in action with the 1s at home against Farnsfield and the 4s at long lane against Fardon. The 2s travel to Kimberly and the 3s are at Gedling and Sherwood. The Sunday 1s are away to Gedling Colliery, well done to everyone this weekend and good luck next week...
