John Wakeling 115 n/o, Nick Hobbs 43, Kane Wilson 24


The Firsts remain under pressure near the basement of "A" and it got no easier as visitors Wollaton took complete control on a good wicket with fast outfield. They galloped to 296/4 with David Barr batting throughout for 86 not out with Mustafa Iqbal the more aggressive for 79. As you might imagine the bowling figures do not make easy reading. With Guy Walker, in his last game, injured a genuine chase was unlikely but John Wakeling and Kane Wilson made a calm start and at two down Nick Hobbs played with confidence. However, after Nick's dismissal for 43 the wheels came off to Iqbal's spin and it was left to hold out for a losing draw. Wako did the club proud batting carrying his bat for a season's first hundred.
