This local “Derby” was played at Wath on Saturday in glorious weather. The attendance was very good and considerable interest was taken in the match.
Denaby won the toss and batted first. She Robinson and H Foster opening to bowling of J Pell and A Holt and Foster was dismissed when 33 runs at be made, Turner safely holding his last ball when the outgoing batsman had made 25. Worthington join Robinson and shortly afterwards Deighton dismissed Willington for two, and clean bowled Robinson, the first ball of his second over, the batsmen having been at the wicket 50 min for his 19 runs.
Tibbles and Narrowway becoming partners, steadily brought the score up to 70, cautiously taking no liberties. Tibbles was very lucky when argued. Mrs Hall on the ball when he had put on 20. The score soon reached 100. The fourth wicket fell at 114, Narroway, being bowled by Holt. He had batted in a brisk manner for his 31.
Tibbles drove Adams through the slips for four, bringing his total to 50, a warm ovation, resulting. Soar joined Tibbles and they brought the score up to 150, the latter still batting merrily. Soar survived an appeal for LBW, but Holt got him in the same over this, Tibbles then being 90. Shoesmith “sky,” a ball from halt, which was caught by the ball without scoring. The Denaby captain then clause is gaining, the score being 195 for 6 wickets, Tibbles being 103 not out and only having given one chance.
Time was called with Wath being 163 for 3, Cutts being 61 not out and I Turner 51 not out.
