Newick CC – 1st XI Vs Bells Yew Green CC – 1st XI

The old saying “rain, rain go away, come again another day” was truly warranted today!

Newick won the toss and elected to bat. Due to a severe player availability issue for this weekend, 6 players were co-opted from the 2nd XI and they really came up trumps. Despite losing an early wicket Newick scored 176 for the loss of 6 wickets from their 40 overs. George Read top scored with 57 ( 6×4 and 3x6s), Josh Essex – 30 and Will Sawyer – 35no.

Newick took 3 Bells Yew Green wickets before rain stopped play at the end of the 19th over and sadly the match was abandoned.
