Brodsworth 120 Denaby & Cadeby 121 for 1

Denaby opened with an easy victory over Brodsworth at Brodsworth, having nine wickets to spare in passing the home side’s total of 120.

A feature of the game with the fact that Ernest Wainwright and Irving Greenwood started the season in fine style with another of their three figure 1st wicket partnerships. They put on 117 before Bodle got through Greenwood’s defence and sent him back from 73, an innings which included nine fours. Wainwright was not in such venturesome mood and it took him 95 minutes to make his 42, while he only reached the boundary twice. After the dismissal of Greenwood, J Batty, one of the club’s recruits, came in to help Wainwright get the few runs necessary to complete the game.

W Holland proved Denaby’s most successful bowler, though Phil Dickinson, who has been under Sutcliffe’s tuition during the winter, showed a big improvement and had three wickets for 35. Holland took five for 43 and Robinson got the other 2 for 7 runs.

Apart from Frost, Baines and Bodell who each got into their 20s Brodsworth did not show to advantage with the bat, and were all out for 120.
