Good to report an excellent weekend with the 1st XI Team winning at home. Norton-in-Hales CC batting first with run makers Simon Belfield scoring 55 runs and Zafar Iqbal hitting 58 runs. The Norton bowlers followed eagerly taking wickets with Zafar taking a 5 wicket haul for 40 runs, Simon Line taking 3 for 27 (including a triple wicket maiden). Very accurate bowling from the team with Norton finishing off the match with a handsome 100 run victory.
Norton-in-Hales CC 2nd XI Team struggled at the away ground of Crewe CC in difficult weather conditions. The team took positives from the match with Rob Warrington hitting 63 not out and Paul Evans with a brilliant bowling contribution taking 7 for 20 off 11 overs. An away drawn match that will spur us on for a home win this Saturday.
This coming Saturday’s matches see the 1st XI Team visiting Hanford CC. Norton’s 2nd XI Team entertaining Hanford CC 2nd XI at home.
After the match the Clubhouse will be lively with a social & Curry supper evening! All welcome for this fun evening…..
