Both the first and second team secured big wins this weekend. The first team away at Rode Park and Lawton CC, the second team at home to Endon CC 2nd X1.
The first team bowled first on their travels to Rode Park and Lawton CC and it was not long before they were back watching the second team secure their win. Kashif Ali Moon (2-12) started the ball rolling along with Mike Dyer (2-15) making early inroads. A wicket for Adeel followed and then a devastating burst from Ewan Farnell (5-3) wrapped up the Rode Park and Lawton innings for 60.
Norton in Hales’s reply did suffer a few wickets, however a very comfortable 6 wicket was gained, Another great win.
The second team at home, batted first and posted a score of 220-7 off their 40 overs. There were many contributions with the bat: James Ruscoe (41), Matt Lawrenson (38), Scott Lawrenson (78) and Rob Warrington (19) doing most of the damage.
The Endon reply never got anywhere near the run rate required, along with regular wickets it was only a matter of time before Norton in Hales gained the win. Endon all out for 112. Notable bowling figures from Scott Lawrenson (4-2), Paul Evans (2-22) and Charlie Hine (2-19). Another great win.
Next week the first team are at home to Alsager CC, 1pm start. The second team are away at Sandyford CC 2nd X1, 1pm start. Please do come along and support.
This week’s winner of the Bonus Ball Prize Draw, Saturday 26th June 2021, was won by James Ruscoe. Congratulations.
