Weekend just gone saw one loss and 2 victories across the 3 teams. On Saturday the 2nd team put in an impressive performance defeating Denton St Lawrence, some fine bowling and catching restricted a good batting line up to 80 all out. Congratulations to Mason Garnett for his first 2nd team five for- 5-25 in total, an impressive performance! In reply Jack Ryder 30* & Liam Brady ensured there was no alarm bells as the team took their time for a 7 wicket win. Thanks to Tommy Brady Decorators for the ball sponsor.
