Mexborough & Swinton Times – Friday 01 August 1930
Denaby & Cadeby dnb Hickleton 197
With the very last ball of Hickleton’s innings at Denaby on Saturday a heavy rain storm broke, and in less than five minutes the ground was one stretch of water, making further play impossible. The field was not dry the next morning.
The Hickleton match was a memorable one for A. Adamson, who made his first appearance in a cricket match. Some people thought he should not have been included in the side, and it was more by lock than judgement that be turned out. Tibbles was taken ill and was unable to play. Adamson war the only likely player in the village, as the reserve team had set off to Tickhill, and he took the field. He fielded exceedingly well. When all the bowlers had tried everything they knew, Adamson was put on at the tennis courts end. With the third ball of his first over he pitched a ball two foot to the off which broke in and took a wicket. From his next over the batsman tried to take advantage of an overthrow and one run out. The remaining batsman put up a catch and Adamson finished up with 2 for 11. He is a slow left-arm howler who has been practicing at the nets for several seeks.
