Star Green ‘un – Saturday 19 June 1909
Denaby Doing Well.
Denaby 246 for 7 Hoyland Silkstone 127
Denaby gained yet another victory, this time at the expense of Hoyland and Silkstone, who were hopelessly outplayed.
Denaby, batting first, totalled 246 for seven wickets, declared, and followed this good work by dismissing Hoyland for 127. It was an emphatic victory. Esland (53), G. C. Robinson (55*) and Butter (55*) all exceeding the half-century, whilst the brothers Robinson and Broomfield worked the necessary with the ball.
I notice that the polished batsman, P.C. Bury, has not yet found his real form. True, he generally manages to get into double figures, but so far he has not given what we, know is “up his sleeve.” Personally. I consider that P.C. Bury quite one the brightest picture cricketers of the League. He gets his runs with freedom all round the wicker, and is a stylist worthy the emulation of some of the budding aspirants to League cricket.
And before concluding this paragraph I must mention the happy event that took place in cricket circles on Monday. On that day Narroway was married, and the popular wicket-keeper was the recipient of a shoal of congratulations.
