Aston Hall 243 for 5 dec. Denaby & Cadeby 179 for 9

Denaby, still seeking their first win, took a severe hammering from the Simmonite brothers Barry and Tot at Aston Hall on Saturday. Coming together when the score was 27 for 2 the Simmonites were not parted until the score had reached 177, a third wicket partnership of 150.

Barry hit 93 and Tot 77, and further scores of 28 by M. Cownley and 21 not out by W. Neil enabled Aston Hall to declare at 243 for 5. For Denaby Parker had two for 41 and R. Lawley 2 for 57.

When Denaby batted they lost two early wickets, but a partnership of 100 by A. Ellis (64) and C. Parker (64) put them back into the game. However when Parker was out caught on the boundary edge going for his third six, and Ellis followed shortly afterwards from a very doubtful lbw decision, the Denaby side lost wickets at regular intervals and they were glad to hold on for a draw at 179 for 9.
