New Mills 142ao v Dove Holes 228-4
Dove win by 86 runs (20 points)
Dove travelled to New Mills and were asked to bat first after a week of mixed weather.
This looked to be a good call when Dove lost opener Gilbride early, however Dan Jones (35) and Jack Gregory steadied the ship taking the score past 100. Skipper Gregory went on to hit a superb 113 not out and Joe Hall finished the innings in style smashing 44 not out as Dove hit 228-4 securing full batting points.
In reply, despite 3 early wickets the hosts dug in and threatened to bat the overs. Pick of the bowling was Dan Waterhouse who bowled 12 overs 3-33. Skipper Gregory rounded off a great performance picking up the final wicket as New Mills were dismissed for 142 in 43 overs. The full 20 points for Dove.
