First Team

DCCL Division One

Dove Holes 241/5 v Broadbottom

Broadbottom win by 5 wickets

Dove hosted Broady as we reached half way point in the season.

Grego won a toss and decided to bat. Gilly fell early as Dove were 24-2. Eddie and Forder took the score on to 62 before both fell. Chez was next to go to leave Dove in trouble at 76-5.

From here Jack and MT dig in to soak up the pressure initially before the skipper went on the counter attack. These 2 put on 76 with Jack scoring 52 before he fell. MT went next with the score 162-6. From here baggy took over scoring a quick fire 36 off 24 to take Dove to 210 which was probably around par.

Gilly and Crich opened up but had an off day despite picking up the early wicket off Ghous with the score on 22. Extras proved costly as Walsh was bowled shortly after off a no ball. He rolled back the years sharing 80 partnerships with Mortimer and Brotherton before he fell for a very well played 79. Im sure this innings won’t get mentioned at all while he’s on Gilly’s stag doo this week.

From there Dove did pick up a few late wickets but it didn’t prove to be enough as Broady knocked off the runs for 5 with 5 overs to spare.

A bad day at the office- but no need to get too down as it’s the first loss of the season and everything still in Doves hands.

Next week is a double weekend to bounce back including the semi final of the Bissenden.
