DCCL Division Two

Old Glossop 206/7 v Dove Holes 204/8

Old Glossop win by 3 wickets

Dove 2s travelled to Old Glossop on a scorching afternoon. The skipper wonthe toss and elected to bat first.

Openers Jones and KC got dove off to a flying start before the latter went for a 2 that not even a prime Linford Christie would've managed, leaving the crease with a very well scored 36.

The dove middle order continued to pile on the runs with Kieran Jones being the solid foundation scoring a magnificent 67 and good contributions from Egg and both Vernons saw them get to 204ao after the allocated 45 overs.

Old Glossops opening batsmen started off just as quickly with a high scoring partnership of 94. Doves attack continued to struggle as the hosts raced on to 148. The Dove captain had to revert to plan B with Ridgway taking the gloves off after 20 overs and finding a breakthrough to get dove back into the game.

With a wicket from Jones and Skipper Gregory, the wicket keeper Ridgway continued to plug away and finished with 5 wickets from 10 overs.

Unfortunately this was not enough to lead the 2s to victory as the home side knocked the target off for the loss of 7 wickets.

Doves MOTM sponsored by David Moore was Keegan Ridgway.

The 2nds go again next week when they host Birch Vale 1sts at the Hallsteads Arena.
