Two weeks ago Outwood our closest rivals completed, because of the weather, the only game out of 37 matches to overtake us at the top of Division 1. Meaning we cannot have any further slip-ups during the rest of season. So when Shipbourne were bowled out for 111, it all looked rather easy. But it changed very quickly with 6 wickets falling for 54… step forward Stu Pinchin on his first game of the season, to the rescue, enabling us to win by 3 wickets. Additional good news Outwood lost so we are now top by 8.
Despite the outcome it seemed almost every regular player was on holiday, yet we still managed to field 4 sides with 3 winning.
In the 2nd XI, a remarkable achievement with an opening stand of 137 with Harry Dix -Perkins and Miga Steyn . Harry finished with 116 out of 283-5 ensuring a win by 58. Another of our young players Mark Mingard in the 4th XI reached 106.
We are producing some very good players long may it continue.
