Exciting Finish.

Denaby and Cadeby 123 Frickley 124 for 9

At Denaby on Saturday. Denaby batted first. The first wicket fell at 2, and the second at 23, but then Wainwright and Volans carried the total to 92 before being separated. Though Wainwright should have left at 36, being missed that square leg. There was a debacle when the fourth wicket fell at 93, and the last six wickets added 30, the side being all out for 123,

Mellor and I. James opened Frickley’s innings. Mellor played a sound game and looked like stopping when a misunderstanding resulted in his being run out at 58. At this point Frickley had lost four wickets, and Denaby appear to have a reasonable chance of winning. When C. Smith had scored 15 tables gave him a “life” which he celebrated by knocking up 33. However, seven wickets were down for 84. Cardwell at nine appeared to sneak a ball and. Appleyard brought off a brilliant catch. But the umpire gave the batsman the decision. The eighth wicket fell at 113 and the ninth at 115. The last man in was W. Curtis. Who got the first ball away somewhat luckilly for four. With a single the scores were level. This was followed immediately by another. Frickley won an exciting game.
