On another day of rain, hail and sunshine, the 2 Saturday senior teams at Norton in Hales CC faired very differently.
The 1st team at home to Meir Heath scored a massive 194 runs of their rain affected 34 overs, Jack Furnival scoring another 50 plus James Pringle scoring 47 off 15 balls did a lot of the damage. After another rain delay that meant that Meir Heath required 111 off 16 overs. With one over to spare the visitors knocked it off with only 4 wickets down.
The 2nd team away at Stafford CC 3rd X1, bowled the home team out for 119, with all the bowlers chipping in, 3-17 from Scott Lawrenson, plus 2 apiece for Reggie Farnell and Charlie Hine were the picks.
In reply a dodgy start with the top 4 all going back to the pavilion very early. It was left to Jamie Shaw and Charlie Hine to steady the ship, 48 and 34 respectively. In the end a very comfortable and richly deserved first success of the season for the 2nd team lads.
Next week the 1st team are at home again, this time to Oakamoor CC, 1pm start time. The 2nd team are away at Leycett CC 2nd X1, start time also 1pm. Please do come along and support. Covid guidelines will then allow to us drink and sit inside the bar, great news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Congratulations to this week’s winner of the Bonus Ball Prize Draw, Saturday 15th May 2021, Sue Walton. Well done.
