First Century Against Denaby
Missed Catches Help Doncaster

George Hutchinson, of Doncaster, had the distinction of being the first batsman to score a century against Denaby this season. His 126 in Tuesdays game included five sixes and 13 fours and was made in two hours and 20 minutes. He was missed that one, six, 31, 50 and 103, being finally out to a high one-handed catch by Mountsey. Bullard scored 50, including six fours and a six, and he and Hutchinson put on 126 for the fifth wicket.

The Denaby bowling was changed frequently, but it fell to Holland to break up the partnership. Reville, who was given a run in the Denaby side, is a useful left arm spin bowler, but against Doncaster luck was against him, most of the catches missed being off his bowling. He took three for 54, Dickinson two for 20 and Holland two for 35.
