Conisborough 54 Wath Athletic 84

A Moderate Game

Only moderate play was witnessed in a match between these teams, which was played on the Conisbrough ground on Saturday, in beautiful weather.

Wath won the toss and batted first recording a score of 84. G Hardy took three for 26 and H Linithan four for 33.

Conisbrough’s reply was poorer and they could only muster 54 runs. W Farrar proved to be the most productive innings, scoring 27.

I am informed that Farrar has decided to play regularly with Conisbrough this season and this news is gratifying, because apart from his powerful batting, he is a very capable wicket-keeper.
