Beighton lose to Denaby and Cadeby

Wanted 29 –  But Got 5

With time up Beighton claimed the last five overs to try to turn the tide in the home Yorkshire Council match with Denaby and Cadeby on Saturday.  They stood at 120 for 8 and needed 29 to win, but there was no “payoff” for Beighton as both wickets fell for five runs for the loss by 23. Denaby and Cadeby had scored 148 and Beighton replied with 125.

It was interesting game from all angles. There was certainly no lack of variety about Beighton batting. 17-year-olds John Smith (28) and Colin Conneally (15) helped the score along in a delightful partnership. D Jones hit form with a good innings of 29 and bowler Eric Robinson hit 35, the highest score of the innings and his highest this season.

Denaby had gone from 76 for 3 to 87 for six. A revival by A Hirst partnered by Shephard and later by Davies was responsible for Denaby reaching 148.
