Team News – Week 5, 26th May 2018


Week 5 of the Intersport Monkhouse Derbyshire & Cheshire League sees the 1st XI make the short trip over Werneth Low to play Compstall in a division 2 game while the 2nd XI are against Hawk Green at Mount Pleasant in a division 4 tie.

Last Saturday saw the first XI play their first game home game of the 2018 season and they were against Old Glossop. Newton elected to bat first and were bowled out for 198. G. Johnson top scoring with 72 and A. Turner getting 31.

Old Glossops reply never got going until they were 120-9. P Littlewood getting 62 not out as Newton nearly threw the game away eventually bowling them out 177, J. Cragg being the pick of the bowlers with 3 – 29

The 2nd XI didn’t have a good day again with Mottram batting first and getting 182 – 7 in 45 overs.

Our reply wasn’t all smooth sailing as wickets fell in regular intervals as no one was able to stay around for much time apart from G. Penney who made 32. The highlight of the innings was R. Bent who managed to see the final over out for a maiden.

This week sees the 1st XI play at home against Old Glossop while the 2nd XI are making the short trip to Mottram. Mike Hyde the main man again getting 4 – 44 off 12 overs.

Newtons reply  wasn’t going anywhere despite M. Barnard getting 62 as we were bowled out for 134. There’s always next week…..
