Denaby Down
The Season’s First Defeat

Denaby 107 Rossington 149

Patchy batting was exhibited by both elevens in the Denaby – Rossington match at Denaby on Saturday when the home team sustained their first defeat of the season by 42 runs.
The only batting performance worthy of mention were Peatfield’s 60 for Rossington and Palmer’s 43 for Denaby

Rossington batted first and managed a total of 149, Peatfield claiming nearly half. Higgins had four for 39, Palmer 3 for 44 and Kennedy’s one victim costs 37 runs.

Denaby also fared badly against the deadly bowling of Blount and Vollans and Patterson were both leg before to him in the early stages. Palmer got the number of the bowling and did some set useful it in, but as in the case of Peatfield, he was poorly sustained and Denaby were accounted for with 107 on the board. Their downfall was due in large measure to the excellent bowling of Blount who had seven for 34.
