South Yorkshire Times, August 15.

Denaby have 10 Wickets Win over Sheffield United.

After being set only 70 runs to reach in their Yorkshire Council game with Sheffield United S.R.on Saturday, Denaby and Cadeby put up a fine display of batting to knock this total off without the loss of a wicket.

Sheffield United were soon in trouble and were only 11 on the board for the loss of their opening batsmen. Only A Hopkinson, who made a useful 18 was able to stand up to the immaculate bowling of Lant (five for 36) and Pearson (five for 31)

Denaby’s opening pair, A Ellis and M.Walker was soon into the runs and the visitors were in the unenviable position of attempting to stop their well-placed shots. Ellis made 35 not out and Walker was 30 when they overhauled the visitors score.
