Well the weather was a lot better this weekend, and all 3 teams playing on the Saturday took full advantage to secure good wins, with some standout stellar performances. Unfortunately the Sunday teams did not fair as well with a low scoring loss, and a low scoring win between them but still plenty of opportunities for points and yet another newbie at the top of the weekly table with James Raftery securing his first weekly award with a superb 819 points, second place was taken by Steve Bishopp, back up into the top 3 again for the first time since the first week of the season, it might of helped that his second XI had a game this week. Third place was taken by Haley Meredith, who along with her excellent teas, also took home a reputable 762 points.
As Daryl Baines has pointed out i refrain from writing about the monthly award, mainly because I forgot, and I wasn’t winning it (editor’s note),Â but Daryl would like everyone know that with 2 weeks to go he is winning the monthly award an is in line for theÂ Â£8.50 prize with 2847 points. In second place is James Meredith with 2742 points, and in third place is Ben Peake with 2715 points.
The main prize, the Â£50 award,Â is for overall leader and that award for a second week in a row is held Eric Linge, who has extended his lead at the top of the table this week, with 3752 points. Our monthly leader, Daryl Baines,Â is going strong moving into second place with 3655 points, barely ahead of a young James Meredith, who is improving week on week with 3648 points.
Onto the players front our stand out single perfomance has to go to Miles Lewis, whose figures of 5 wickets for 2 runs, gave him a well deserved 152 points. According to reports it should of been 6 wickets for 1 run but an unnamed fielder dropped a catch costing both a wicket and a run. Consistent performer Eric Linge, has taken second place with 151 points, mainly down to an unbeaten 62 runs down at the delph, helping to secure the 1st XI third victory of the year. Third place has gone to mr consistancy himself in Tim Carroll, with his unbeaten 81 not out as well as chipping in with the ball as well.
This leaves the players table looking as such. Eric Linge keeps his lead at the top of the table with 957 points. Neil Sexton keeps his good form going with a strong partnership with Eric on Saturday, as well as chipping in with wickets, with 420 points. Third place is taken by Dean Elsworthy, who hangovers aside, is consistently performing to take 334 points. Only 2 more weeks to go until the end of this month and the announcement of our monthly winner. Also a side note, at the bottom to make sure you’ve read all the way through, the transfer window is open on the 23rdÂ until the end of the month, so read your form charts and make the appropriate changes.
