 Rothera Sharp Division C

Rob Goddard 6-27 and Richard Pitt 3-22 were in fine form with the ball as Gotham 86-2 gained maximum points with a fine home win over Beeston & Toton 85-10. Sam Foster 65 and Dhruv Shahi 51 helped Keyworth post 238-9 and the 5-56 from Mark Everington was the only highlight for Farndon 64-2 were left frustrated when rain curtailed play. Colin Cliff 89* top scored for Fiskerton&Thurgarton 211-5 and they were on the cusp of a fine victory when the weather intervened with Hucknall struggling on 47-6. Stuart Mills with 5-31 helped put Radcliffe on Trent 48-3 into a winning position until the heavens opened after bowling out Gedling & Sherwood for 116-10. The 51 from Alex Sheriston looked to be vital as West Bridgfordians set 166-7 and they reduced Caythorpe to 42-4 until the abandonment was enforced.

Rex Gooding Div D

Another division which saw no games finishing means the table still stays compact and there were a few highlights which included 54 from Ryan Charlesworth for Bottesford 288-7 against Ellerslie 2-1 and 4-38 from Jamie Huscroft for Plumtree 77-0 as they chased the 162-10 set by East Bridgford. Yet again Tom Coffey top scored with 49 for Gedling Colliery 156-10 as Bingham were poised on 40-3 at the stoppage, when an exciting finish was abruptly forced upon the players. Both the matches between Grantham 185-8 against Hickling 20-1 and that between Bramcote 159-8 against Collingham 71-2 were also denied finishes.

Trophy Master Division E

Harry Adams 74* and a rapid 43 from 28 balls by Jake Fisher saw Belvoir 188-4 victorious in their home encounter with West Bridgfordians 185-5 in which A Sharpe hit 61*.  J Evans 4-9, J Faulkner 3-10 and C Drury 3-17 bowled magnificently as Newark R&M 61-2 excelled in the victory over Sutton Bonington 60-10. M Lee with 51 and 4 dismissals from keeper J Hunt enabled Underwood 90-2 to take maximum points in the win over near neighbours Kirkby Portland 89-10. Mohammed Nisar 52, Arun Johal 51 and M. Aleem 50 were all in the runs in the abandoned game between Nott’s Unity 227-8 against Caythorpe and Ruddington 41-1 were left aggrieved when chasing the 96-9 made by East Leake.

GB Bookkeeping Division F

Only one game resulted in a positive outcome that being high flying Flintham 128-2 who stretched their lead at the top after defeating Gotham 125-10 with a trio of performances from M Newcombe 54, A Hemstock 32* & H Boswell 4-7. The weather forced a thrilling climax to the game in which M Salim 47, C Turlowski 31, N Suiter 6-22 all starred for Caunton 97-5 in their run chase over Ravenshead 155-10. D. O'Donnell 36* & 4-21 was certainly in line for the man of the match award as Lowdham 65-2 were thwarted when replying to the modest total of 110-10 made by Lenton & Willoughby. Lastly both sides may have felt in ith a chance until the rain came between Basford Mill 118-7 & Burton Joyce 45-4.

Young Lions 59-1 took full advantage of conditions when they brushed aside West Bridgford Legion 58-10 with M Sharma 3-16, H Singh 3-4 & H Bhaker 42* all in fine form. Tim Wheatley hit 84 in Kimberley’s score of 268-6 and Fiskerton&Thurgarton were 33-2 when play was terminated. Abandoned at the tea interval was the game between Kinoulton & Gedling Colliery 208-6 in which Lee Gomersall 50 and Geoff Burton 47 were the highest scorers. Nazakat Ali 138* and Ali Haider 71 were in tremendous form as Carrington declared on 244-2 sadly rain prevented Whatton & Aslockton 6-0 making much progress in reply. Beeston & Toton 117-8 had a chance to close the gap on fellow strugglers Balderton 35-3 until yet again a match had to be abandoned.

Turner Violins Division H

50 from Dwayne Buckley for Stapleford 126-9 against Chilwell and 52 from Haseeb Javed for Madni 183-6 against Attenborough 110-6 were the batting highlights in the two abandonments whilst at West Park only 36 overs were possible where Long Eaton were 98-8. There was a fantastic finish when the 69 from Matt White for Southwell 182-9 nearly pulled of an amazing win but Clifton 189-10 ran out winners with the efforts from J Dickinson 40, M Croxall 37 & R. McMillan 3-41. Gedling & Sherwood 70-0 were denied what seemed a certain win by the weather as they were well in control chasing 117-10 set by Calverton.

Carlton Car Centre Division J

An excellent 93 from Muhammed Mehmud was the highlight in the match between Ruddington 195-9 and Hucknall but sadly not much play was possible where Hoveringham 131-5 entertained Keyworth and no play at all between Basford Old Boys & Ellerslie. West Bridgfordians were defending 139-8 when rain forced the players off with Oxton on 56-2.

King Stone Products Division K

George Pursglove 13 yrs with 3-35 & Andy Waddle 4-5 bowled Attenborough 13-1 into contention when they restricted Great Dalby 147-10. R Pinder with an unbeaten 90 saw Farndon set 160-9 and Bramcote were 12-0 at the termination of play. Charlie Fisher 91 and Ravi Yarwood Paintal 66 guided Collingham to 195-6 and with the game evenly poised rain won the day with Newark R&M stranded on 90-3 with P Litchfield 52 and Shez Butt 4-42 starring. Kimberley 129-5 and Poplars 50-4 were yet another set of players frustrated with the great British weather.

Oracle Property Finance Ltd Division L

J Booth hit 44 for Radcliffe on Trent 154-9 but Basford Mill 68-2 were in the driving seat until yes you’ve guessed it the rain fell to end their hopes of a win. Bengal United claimed maximum points when Underwood were unable to raise a side. Joe Gant with 63 and A Shah with 6-36 were the two stand out performances in the match between Old Dalby 237-9 & East Bridgford 11-1. A Walker 74 and M Arlott 3-6 both put Belvoir in the driving seat in the match against RHP 29-4 for whom Tom Shephard took 6-59 earlier in the day. J Towers 73 & A Pick 72 helped Thrumpton to a score of 236-6 but that was the last of the action for players on either side.
