*1st Eleven suffer heavy defeat but rivals also slip up in race for survival*

Club News

The first eleven delivered a welcome victory in their must win game at the weekend. 3 wickets apiece for Dan Pellett and Adam Devlin, and 4 from Dave Pye saw Slinfold bowled out for just 45 runs. In reply Steve Hook hit 19 of the runs opening, but a mini collapse followed. Losing 5 wickets for 5 runs and Bob Pye (next in to bat) nowhere to be found Hellingly looked to be in a bit of trouble but Gavin Sutherland hit 10 runs to win the game, and get the celebrations started. still 8 games to go in the fight for survival in the second half of the season, but a perfect way to start. 


The Statistic tables are hotting up with Greg Devlin, Gavin Sutherland, Iain Morgan and John Ottley leading the way in the batting. Adam Devlin, Rory Mullen, Luke Boorer and Stuart Twine are the leaders for the 4 elevens in the bowling. Also in the prestigious duck of the year award the current leaders are Andy Rose, Monty Payne, George Hook, Gavin Sutherland, Adam Devlin and Mike Williams. It is still no clearer who is on for the award but joint favourites and previous years runners up Adam and Andy are a good shout in the betting.


The hanging baskets and pot plants are looking fantastic outside the clubhouse, still plenty of time and space for more to be added before the club photos and judging takes place.


Keep an eye out for Dave Pye’s and Joe Hook’s reports each week in the Gazette, Herald and Express
