Cricket – Nutley return to winning ways!

Oskar Ainley bowling for Nutley

Nutley 146 for 2 beat Willingdon 2nds 145 for 9

Nutley returned to winning ways with a comfortable home win against Willingdon.

Having been asked to bat Willingdon made a slow start on a damp wicket before Luke Nelson (33) and Richard Cooknell (25) got the score moving. NIck Avis (4/21) picked up regular wickets to remove the middle order as the visitors closed on 145 for 9.

In reply Nutley lost an early wicket but an exellent second wicket stand between Avis (49no) and Clive Croft (47) who both batted patiently to take the hosts to the verge of victory before a brisk knock from Nick Parsons (17) sealed the win at 146 for 2.

Next week Nutley visit Seaford 3rds
