Last weekends results 🦁🏏

The 4ths take 27 points as Lullington concede, meaning only the other 3 teams played on Saturday. 

The 3rds played away to Derby Congs, winning the toss and bowling first we took regular wickets to get them to 97-8. @alexsumner__ leading with 3-27, @benno1991 2-43 and Bevan Solomon 2-50 and an all round top fielding performance bowling them out for 166/10 after some late resistance. We started well in the chase and got to 54-2 before a few quick wickets put us on the back foot at 81-5. Abdul and Alex putting on a key 46 run partnership, with the former ending on 41 - a high score for the day. We then gritted the remainder of the runs out as we won 8 down πŸ‘πŸ½

The 1sts played at home to Langley Mill, chasing 272 to win they came close but fell around 40 runs short. Bowling first, @chrismcilroy86 took 4-63 including Nottinghamshires Samit Patel who was the difference with his 120. @chrisdurham33 with 2-12, @adam_w0507 with 2-36 and @adamwheatcroft with 1-54. In the chase, we started well, @mattjamessis threatening to follow up last seasons double ton against the same opponent with a 59 off just 27. Whilst @a.raza28 put together a fantastic 64 (48) πŸ‘πŸ½ to edge us close but quick wickets cost us as we fell short. 

The 2’s played away to Swarkestone in a 2nd Vs 1st. Swarkestone batting 1st put on around or just over par 236/7, with a great effort from AJ picking up a few big wickets with 3-57. In the chase, Woody came close to another half century with 46 (72) and put on 55 for the first wicket with Omar. We then went to 69-3 and 136-6, struggling to build a few key partnerships to get us towards their total. However Daryll Walker got his first half century of the season 54 (70) πŸ‘πŸ½ and @rich87ottewell 32 from 29 brought us close to give hope, but we ran out of overs and ended up 30 or so runs short. 

On Sunday, the 2’s played their Bayley Cup quarter final at Burton V higher division Trentside - a reward for a strong season so far - though were unfortunately beaten on the day. 

Onto this weekends fixtures!
