The 1sts continued their push for promotion with a fine win at Church Fenton on Saturday. On a placid pitch not offering anything to the bowlers,Leos restricted Fenton to 211-7. A fine batting performance,albeit a bit squeaky bum at the death,saw us home with a 7 wicket win. 50s for Chris Butt & Stuart Cobbett along with contributions from the other three batsmen,saw us needing 3 of 3 balls. A four from Josh settled the game. We are 4 points behing Garforth who are currently in the promotion spot.
The 2nds continued their slump and fell by 38 runs to Sherburn.A good bowling performace (Ollie Deane 4 for 24 off 12) saw us skittle Sherburn for 126.We were 58 for 2 off 10 in reply,but an alarming collapse saw us reduced to 66 for 8.With only 10 men turning up (not sure where the 11th got to and the 10th turned up at 2.10) a brave 18 from Javeed couldn't see us home. We are now level on points with second bottom Walton (who we play next week) and with the top 4 still to play,the situation is worrying.
