On a very bright but chilly day the 1st and the 2nd team scored highly in terms of runs, however with differing outcomes!
The 1st team, at home to Stafford CC scored a massive 278 off their 40 overs. Joe Wagg achieving a fifty and Jack Furnival getting into his 90’s. Captain Alex Thorley and Darren Long also chipping in with 42 and 33 respectively.
In reply the Norton in Hales bowling attack did their job very professionally. They never let the batsmen get into much pf a rhythm and wickets fell relatively often! James Pringle ending with 4 wickets, Kashif and Anthony Sheeran 2 apiece. Stafford CC bowled out 138 runs short.
The 2nd team batted first and scored a very highly respectable 207 off their 40 overs. Captain Matt Lawrenson top scoring with 47, Simon Dyer 45 and Olly Wain 26 also chipping in well.
Church Eaton’s reply started poorly with a wicket apiece for Jamie Shaw and Reggie Farnell. After the 2 early wickets the home team steadied the ship and put together solid partnerships, in the end knocking off the total required to win only 4 wickets down.
Next week the 1st team are away at Bignall End CC, 1pm start. The 2nd team are at home to Stafford CC 2nd X1, 1pm start. Please do come along and support.
This week’s winner of the Bonus Ball Prize Draw, Saturday 1st May 2021, Mr Duncan Blood. Well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
