Ackworth’s Batting Failure

Ackworth  88  Denaby & Cadeby  122 for 5

For Denaby:  E Tibbles 68, G Worthington 37

On a perfect wicket at Ackworth, the home team, who had made huge scores the previous two weeks, cut up badly against the bowling of Shoesmith and Widdowson.

Half their wickets were down for 54, and only I. Turner, the Wath batsman, showed anything like decent defence. He went in at the fall of the first wicket, and was sixth man out.

Shoesmith, who bowled through the innings, had the excellent figures of six wickets for 40 runs. Widdowson’s three wickets cost a like number.

Denaby’s start was sensational, Harris bowling Narroway with the first ball of the innings. Tibbles played delightful cricket, making 56 of his runs by boundary strokes, .and scoring 68 out of 88.
