Thorncliffe lose at Denaby.
After a hopeful start, Thorncliffe suffered a sudden collapse at Denaby on Saturday and by 4.30 had lost all their wickets with the score standing at only 75.
The final 7 Thorncliffe wickets were claimed by Lant and Pearson, who give away only 19 runs. Lant took six for 32 and Pearson, three for nine.
After losing two wickets – Dodds for six and Oakley for a duck – Parkes and Hough, had little difficulty in taking Denaby score to 78 and registering a well-deserved victory. Parkes made 33 not out and Hough 24 not out.
Geoff Parkes, who joined the police force during the winter, was able to assist the club for the first time this season and he proved to be a very capable substitute for opening bat, Arthur Ellis, who was away on holiday.
