Higgins and Tibbles Again

Denaby 116 for 5                               Dinnington 115

E Tibbles 64                                                         E Dann 37; Higgins 5-56


A poor beginning by each side was a feature of the match at Denaby on Saturday. Dinnington had first knock and in 10 minutes lost two wickets for 20. Not long afterwards five wickets were down for 41. King gave an easy chance to Greenwood but it was not accepted. Higham and Dann called a halt but found runs hard to get off Higgins and Shoosmith. Nevertheless they added 61 runs. Then the rot set in, three more wickets falling for six runs. The Denaby bowling was good, especially that of Larke (two for 19), who had most of the batsmen at sea. Higgins took five for 56, and Shoosmith two for 25. Vollans was the smartest man in the field, he is picking up and throwing in being very neat.

Denaby also made a poor start, Greenwood was out for 3. Carlin was given out l.b.w. And the crowd gave varied loud opinions on the ruling. Tibbles and Wainwright gave a fine quick scoring display.
