Denaby Escape Again

Denaby 132 for 8                              Collegiate 184

The return match between Denaby and Collegiate at Denaby on Saturday, went on similar lines the one week earlier at Abbeydale Park; Denaby in the end narrowly escaping defeat. They still fell 52 runs short of the Collegiate total, with but two wickets to fall, when time expired.

They started well enough in their reply to Collegiate 184, but Carling and other following batsmen failed. Greenwood again did well with the ball – as well as adding another 30 to his aggregate for the season with the bat. He took six wickets for 55 runs.

Cooper was the most successful of the Collegiate bowled with four for 49.
