Cricket – Mayfield v Nutley

Mayfield 3rds 207 for 6 beat Nutley 203 for 9

Match Scorecard

Nutley made a solid start having been asked to bat through Sean Fuller (21) and Ian Ritchie (21) before a mini collapse against a strong Mayfield attack. However, Dean Ridley (22) and Alan Poulter (50no) led a defiant recovery and with an extremely generous 50 extras helping the visitors to a respectable 203 for 9. Steve Malkin (3/21) and Charlie Watson (3/48) were the pick of the home bowlers.

In reply Mayfield set about Nutleys bowlers from the start with Derek Horsham (26) and Will Nicklin (44) racing away with boundaries flying from both the middle and edge of their bats. Wickets started to fall as the now over confident home batsmen contributed to their own downfall with Nick Avis (4/83) being the most successful bowler. Charlie Watson (64) then launched an all out assault on the Nutley bowlers and with Paul Ross (32no) saw Mayfield to victory at 207 for 6 with eleven overs to spare.

Nutley travel to Denton on Saturday.
