Swinton gone for 57 to Denaby Attack

Swinton’s  Yorkshire Council eleven were beaten by a powerful Denaby and Cadeby side in their “local derby” at Swinton on Saturday. Set to score 159, they reached only  57, their wickets falling to H Newton and R Cory

Denaby’s opening pair, A. Ellis , got off to a rather slow start, but they soon proved  that they had no intention of breaking up. Swinton put on six different bowlers in a fruitless. attempt to split the partnership.

When Ellis and Jones ” warmed up ” after 45 minutes, spectators were treated to some first rate cricket. Ellis reached 51 before being caught by James off Colton with the score at 93, and not long afterwards, Jones, one short of his half century, was lbw to Shaw. Third man in, R. Cory also had a good innings and made 34 before being sent back by Colton. P. Downing was bowled by Colton for 7 and N. Oakley was caught by Senior off Colton for 8. W. McDonald was 7 not out.

In the Swinton innings, only F. Senior (caught Ellis, bowled Newton 21) and G. Palmer (bowled

Newton 13) managed to reach double figures. K. Colton scored 9 before being caught by Ellis off the bowling of Cory, but his companions fell very cheaply,     There were three “ducks’—Shaw (bowled Cory), Petts (caught and bowled Cory, and B. Drury  (lbw Newton).

Two Wickets fell in the last over, both to Cory.  Newton ended with six for 20 and Cory four for 23.
