Weekend report - 20th August

The 1sts were away to Caythorpe who won the toss and elected to field. The 1sts managed to set a score of 165 from their 50 overs and Steve Allcoat top scored with 37. Caythorpe chased the score down with 5 wickets and 15 balls spare despite a great spell from Adam Iyer (11.3-2-27-2), full scorecard here. The 2nds were home to Wollaton and they batted first scoring 238 with only 3 wickets being taken. The 2nds never got close and were eventually bowled out for 78, full scorecard here. Wollaton managed to secure the league trophy and Premier League promotion with this victory. Massive congratulations to Wollaton and all the best next season! The 3rds were home to Long Eaton and managed to win by 98 runs. The 3rds posted a great score of 197 from the allocated 45 overs. Everyone chipped in but Sam Henson stood out with a quick fire 42. Long Eaton were bowled out for 99 with a key contribution from Sam again. 3 for 26 from MotM Sam and he was backed up by James Binnie who took 3 for 11, full scorecard here. Finally... rounding up the Saturday games, the 4ths were away to Kimberley. The 4ths fielded first and restricted Kimberley to 130 with young Seth Puddy starring with the ball (4 for 33). The score was chased down inside 39 overs by the 4ths. Run machine Carl Knight led the chase with 66* and only 4 wickets were lost in total, full scorecard here. Great victories by the 3rds and 4ths. 

Our Sunday games included some ferocious hitting! The 2nds were home to Wicked Willows in a friendly 30 over game. The 2nds batted first and posted 184 with key contributions from Phil Beecham (42) and skipper Phil Wort (41*) BUT enter Thom Murray... Thom came in at the end of the innings and hit 32 in one over! The over went like this; 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 2. Top top effort and surely this is the most amount of runs made by an Attenborough batsman in an over even though Thom missed out with the last ball! Wicked Willows only managed to achieve 112 and it was good to see Paul 'Midge' Strickland back in action. The 1sts were away to top of the league Rainbow who like Wollaton managed to win the game, the league trophy and achieve promotion to Division 1. Massive well done to Rainbow! The 1sts batted first and posted a below par score of 146 with contributions from Ben Bhabra (34), Byron Haycock (30) and Lakshay Sharma (22). Rainbow managed to chase it down inside 25 overs and lost only 1 wicket.
