However an exciting game was taking place 5 miles down the A690, where the seconds faced their counter parts from Belmont. Michael Williamson opened the batting reaching 98 before being given out LBW. New signing M Hussain batted superbly to achieve 116 before being caught. Colin Henderson 6, Connor Henderson 1, James Messer 0. Davy Noble playing his last game for the club before an operation (we wish him all the best and in his recovery!) scored 12, Graham Avent 0, Luke Armstrong 21, Glen Moody 7, Darren Portrey not out 9 and Derrick Steinberg 0 gave us a grand total 293 all out a great score and the highest the club has seen this year.
After another great Belmont tea, the lads set to work defending the total. This we achieved greatly bowling Belmont out for 87. Giving us a 206 run victory. J Ricketts top scoring with 21. On the bowling front Darren Portrey 4 for 33, Derrick Steinberg 1 for 21, Michael Williamson 2 for 9, Luke Armstrong 2 for 3, Connor Henderson 0 for 8 and Davy Noble 1 for 5 wrapped up the innings.
Another good weekend...
