Nutley 152 for 9 lost to St Peters 153 for 1
Nutley’s relegation woes continued as another pitiful batting performance and dropped catches led to another defeat.
Having been asked to bat on a damp, slow wicket, the hosts crashed to 34 for 6 as Matthew Willard (4/21) took out the top order before skipper Alan Poulter (97no) played a skillful face saving knock. Poulter and Phil Andrews (15) put on 70 for the seventh wicket to help see Nutley to a respectable 152 for 9.
In reply both of the St Peters openers offered chances but Nutley failed to hang on to them whch proved costly as Anthony Chiu (85no), Suresh Navaratnam (32) and Harry Craker (35no) eased the visitors to victory by nine wickets and towards mid table safety.
Nutley visit Blackboys this Saturday.
