After a typically good Littletown tea it was our turn with the ball and on a firm track we did not disappoint. With T Crowther providing the strongest resistance with a defiant 24. Darren Portrey 3 for 23, Glen Moody 0 for 14 and Luke Armstrong 1 for 16 reducing Littetown's resistance. But it was Connor Henderson 6 for 15 we tore through the Littletown line up and gave us the victory and confirmed our championship for another season.
On Sunday the seconds added to the Robert Dunnett trophy we had retained last week. By winning the Amos Lowing shield for the first time since 1963. Playing Hunwick, we batted first reaching 178 for 3, Neilo Matthews again being man of the match with 84 runs, ably assisted by Anuj Chettri 13, Mike Williamson 31 and Davy Noble 25 not out. After a quick turn around Hunwick batted out the twenty overs for 92 runs. With S Crowther top scoring on 30. In reply Darren Portrey 1 for 14, Glen Moody 0 for 11, Derrick Steinberg 2 for 22, Luke Armstrong 2 for 25 and Connor Henderson 2 for 11 helped us top off a great season for the seconds with one game left to play.
The first unfortunately fell to another defeat after a run of victories at the hands of Kimblesworth. Kimblesworth batted first reaching 174 for 8. With D Card top scoring on 34. Will Orchin 0 for 50, Ian Kitching 1 for 27, Rachael Petherick 1 for 29, Andy Lormor 2 for 29, Chris Vallance 2 for 8 and Chris Paton 2 for 37 giving us a decent but not insurmountable total to chase. But the collapse began almost instantly after tea. With Alan Maskell, Michael Robbie and Chris Paton leaving us on 1 for 3 wickets after two overs. With Will Orchin 3, Andy Lormor 8 and Graham Avent 2 all struggling ti was left to the til end to try and pick up the run rate. With Anthony Ashman 14, Rachael Petherick 15, Kieran Paton 3 and Ian Kitching 0 not out summing up the tail. However this leaves a large gap in our final total of 122 all out. Chris Vallance our opening batted carried his bat throughout posting an impressive 74 before being bowled to end our innings, 52 runs short. Alot closer than it looked earlier on.
