Slow Scoring in “Local Derby.”
Denaby 58 for 1 Mexborough 161 for 6 dec
The “local Derby” between Denaby and Mexborough drew a big crowd to Denaby’s ground, but it did not provide much excitement.
Mexborough batted for three hours and ten minutes, and there was a great, deal of “barracking” from the crowd. After an hour’s play Mexborough had not scored 50. Denaby had only 90 minutes left.
They lost Greenwood in the second over, but Carlin and Tibbles plaved out time.
